Singaporean cult sneaker customizer Sabotage (commonly known as SBTG) and Casio are releasing the custom SBTG x G-Shock DW-5600 watch throughout Southeast Asia. This limited edition DW-5600 designed by SBTG founder Mark Ong features a military-inspired leopard camouflage design which is a signature SBTG theme. The vision of this collaboration was to create a timepiece that would embody Mark Ong’s design philosophy of constant improvements as a journey and an end unto itself. Ong chose the DW-5600 because of its status as the forerunner of the G-Shock family and how it kick-started G-Shock’s journey of absolute toughness.
The SBTG X G-Shock DW-5600 has a matte green surface, a leopard camouflage pattern around the display, and a black “bull bar” face protector. The face bears SBTG’s logo and a DW-5600 model tag, and the engraved case back features the SBTG logo and its slogan “Destroy To Create.” The EL backlight also displays the slogan when activated.
The G-SHOCK X SBTG DW-5600 is part of a capsule collection that also includes a co-branded shirt, cap and skateboard deck. It will be available in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia. Those who want the complete collection will be able to purchase it from February 3 to February 11 2018 at the G-Shock pop-store in Singapore (Wisma Atria, Outdoor Atrium). The collection will also be available at all G-Factory stores (except for IMM) on February 12.
SBTG was created 15 years ago by Mark Ong (also known as Mr Sabotage), a veteran of the street fashion scene in Singapore and internationally. Starting out as a one-man sneaker customization workshop, it has matured into a full-fledged design and production house. Aside from military motifs, Ong draws inspiration from old school punk music, along with skateboarding and other subcultures.
