After making his name as a camo-obsessed customiser, Mark Ong went on to work with brands such as Nike, Reebok and Crep Protect under the banner of his own label, SBTG. But for someone who specialises in military aesthetics, what better company to collaborate with than the world’s preeminent tough watch manufacturer, G-Shock?
This isn’t the first time SBTG has collaborated with the Japanese timepiece giant, although it’s been a while between drinks. Now, to celebrate the 35-year anniversary of G-Shock, SBTG has brought their recognisable style to the classic DW-5600 model. The matte-green case and band has been wrapped with a black bull bar, under which is a camouflage-printed bezel. At night, the watch glows with a custom back light, while a custom engraved back-plate seals the deal on a unique design. The release will be accompanied by a hat, shirt and skateboard that sport the same patterning.
The SBTG x G-Shock DW-5600 will be available from a pop-up store in Singapore’s Wisma Atria from February 3, and from G-Factory locations as of February 12.
