Not to be outdone by the $4,300 MRGG2000RJ-2A, G-SHOCK introduces its most expensive watch to date with the $69,500 G-D5000-9JR. The timepiece is made from 18K yellow gold, as it arrives in celebration of G-SHOCK's 35th anniversary.
The watch's impact-resistant square case, band and screws are all cast from 18K gold, while the G-D5000-9JR is appropriately outfitted with Casio's latest technical updates, including split-second time correction courtesy of radio waves from six stations across the globe. Furthermore, the watch is powered by Casio’s Tough Solar charging system.
While many think of G-SHOCK as a more reasonably-priced watch option — which is generally the case — the 18K G-D5000-9JR is clearly a rare release. Again, the timepiece is set to retail for approximately $69,500. If you're interested in copping, you'll have to submit a pre-order through Casio on May 15. The watch will then ship in December.
