Cartier celebrates the thirty-fifth anniversary of the original G-Shock with a style that will put even the most indulgent Swiss brands to shame: launching the solid 18-carat gold, $ 70,000 Cartier G-Shock G-D5000-9JR 'Solid Gold', running for about 500 times the cost of your average G-Shock. Available replica watches Cartier in only 35 numbered copies, the G-D5000-9JR is destined to be the heaviest on the wrist, as it is on the eyes and on the wallet.
Have you ever seen a solid 18-karat gold watch with a gold case, bezel and bracelet, be catapulted into a concrete block? Head on? In slow motion? And then being slapped from behind by a big flying hammer? Two minutes ago I would have said "No, I don't have!" - but now I have, and I'm glad I did ... And above all, you can also click or touch the YouTube video above to watch the glory of an all-gold G-Shock finally put to the test.
I say "finally", because only three years ago Cartier presented its "Dream Project DW-5000 Ibe Special (video here)", the first solid Cartier G-Shock in 18 ct gold. This has remained a conceptual piece, exhibited in BaselWorld and other parts of the world, but has never been commercially available, nor have we ever seen the filming of this test as plebee G-Shocks have been tested ...
For Cartier G-Shock G-D5000-9JR 'Solid Gold', we see that Cartier focuses on ensuring that all 35 pieces in this very special edition of G-Shock watches will work, work and resist like any real G-Shock should. .. Although most of all these watches will be safe queens rather than replica watches hitters. I would reflect on the fact that the video shows a golden G-Shock with the positive display of the Dream Project being tested, and not a clock with the reverse display of the G-D5000-9JR, although it is this piece just announced with which it ends video. Just when you thought that Cartier's PR in Japan couldn't give an extra touch to things.
The rendering of an all-metal G-Shock or, I should say, "Full Metal" behaves with the same incredible levels of shock resistance is no longer an inconvenience to Cartier, as they have convinced the world of the unstoppable duration of their case in metal and metal bracelet watches with the "Poor Man's Steel Daytona", the coveted GMW-B 5000 D-1 that we covered here from BaselWorld 2018.
