Unboxing : Casio G-Shock GX56-4ER – The King G (Orange)

In the G-Shock Watch World this huge G-Shock is affectionately known as the ‘King-G.’ And that it a title it rightly deserves.

At the time of writing this is currently the largest offering in the G-Shock range with dimensions of approximately 55.5mm x 53.6mm x 17.5mm (H x W x D).

This watch is truly a monster, and also my second GX-56 in my collection.

The first one I acquired being a GX56-1AER, which is identical expect in the colour scheme, namely black.

This version, the GX56-4ER is much more ‘in your face’ sporting a vibrant orange colour scheme that simply can not be hidden.
If you don’t like people checking out your watch from distances up to 200m maybe you’d be better opting for the black version!

The watch itself has all the features you’d expect now from G-Shock, 200m water resitance, shock resistance, date, time, alarm, stop watch, world times… and the list goes on. The is also an atomic edition of the watch so time zones and BST settings will never be an issue again.

Prices vary wildly for this watch so if you want one keep an eye out, I picked mine up brand new for £81.00 and have seen them listed for up to £200 for the non atomic variant!

One final point and it is the only bad point I have to make about this watch is that since this unboxing I have been wearing the watch daily, whilst working, socialising, running, biking and cycling. The watch gets grubby. The red resin strap is a bit like the any of the other coloured G-Shocks out there. The straps captured different, darker colours from any source, such as clothing, jackets or dirt and grime, it then holds onto them and won’t let go. It makes the watch look grubby, and if you want to wear the watch and enjoy it that is something that you just have to deal with. You can try cleaning it with Magic Sponge, or whatever your choice of cleaning system is but it will grab all any any dark colours, and it detracts from the look and feel of the watch.

However this thing is orange, let’s be real, even dirty it looks awesome!

(I Have choosen not to post pictures of the watch looking grubby, if you want to see what I am talking about just let me know.)

    Where did you purchase this from? I’ve been looking for one for ages but they’re sold out everywhere!?

    • TomBoyNI says:

      I got mine from Urban Industry (urbanindustry.co.uk).

      However I have just had a look and they seem have sold out or stopped stocking them. Google shows 2 in stock in the UK but coming in at £150.

      I would email urban industry and see if they can help you out. I found them great to deal with. Ordered on Day 1 at about 15:00 and received the next morning at 08:00!
