Described as a dream project, Casio is releasing two 18-karat gold G-Shock G-D5000-9 watches available for sale in the United States. A raffle will be held for interested buyers to purchase one of the watches, with two winners to be selected next month, June 2019. The raffle entry is available at the following retailers in America:

The all gold G-SHOCK’s were announced during a speech in February at the G-Shock 35th Anniversary Fan Festa in Shibuya. G-Shock creator Kikuo Ibe revealed that Casio is manufacturing a limited run of authentic gold G-Shock watches for sale. As an official release, the gold G-Shock will meet the full specifications for shock and water resistance.
“It took five years for our dream project to achieve an ideal impact-resistant structure for gold, which is delicate yet 1.5 times heavier than stainless steel. We succeeded by refusing to compromise.”
Kikuo Ibe, G-SHOCK Creator
The solar-powered G-Shock G-D5000-9 is limited to 35 pieces worldwide and features a case, bezel, and band made of 18-karat gold. Pre-orders are also available in Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, and the United Arab Emirates.
