To celebrate the pop-up store’s 10-day run, G-SHOCK and SBTG hosted a clock customization workshop on Sunday, February 11.
The G-SHOCK x SBTG clock customization workshop was conducted by Mr Sabotage (Mark Ong) of SBTG, also the designer of the recently released G-SHOCK x SBTG DW-5600 watch.
Held on Sunday, February 11, the G-SHOCK x SBTG pop-up store at Wisma Atria was converted into a makeshift studio for a group of 20 lucky participants. The group comprised social media personalities and CASIO customers – the latter were invited for being the first few customers who purchased the collaboration watch.
At the event, participants were given SBTG sticker sheets and a standard CASIO 1Q-01S-1DF black wall clock each. Sticker motifs include the leopard camo print seen on the DW-5600 collaboration watch, crossbones and SBTG branding.
Mr Sabotage gave the workshop participants a hands-on tutorial. Through the interaction, participants also got the chance to get up close and personal with the accomplished designer.
Echoing SBTG’s “Destroy to Create” motto, the tutorial involved disassembling the clock in order to create the sticker collage background. The result? An array of unique collage designs, each reflecting its creator’s unique personality.
Mr. Teppei Takahashi, Assistant General Manager of Timepiece Division at Casio Singapore, was also present during the event. Other notable attendees include Efy (@efymefy) as well as street photographers Ee Jin Moh (@parag0n) and Gabriel Michael (@13thmessenger).
Guests took home their customized wall clocks as a token of appreciation for attending the workshop.
About the G-SHOCK x SBTG DW-5600
The G-SHOCK x SBTG DW-5600 collaboration was created to celebrate the legacy of the DW-5600, often considered one of the original models released by G-SHOCK. As reported in our previous article, the timepiece features a rugged aesthetic due to its military green outer along with leopard camouflage accents which frames the LCD screen.
