Casio has launched a limited-edition G-SHOCK timepiece with local artist Tobyato to commemorate Singapore’s 56th National Day.
Inspired by the colours on Singapore’s flag, the brand’s AW-500BB-4EDR base model is decked out in red with a white lion designed on the band. The watch comes with a specially designed box similar to the band too.
“Singapore is more than just a home to me. As an artist, Singapore is the place that allowed me to pursue my passions. Singapore is the place that allowed me to chase my dreams. Singapore is the place that let me tough it out and become the creative I am today. And I will always be grateful for this place I call home,” said artist Tobyato of his design.
Priced at S$219, the limited-edition watch is available first to CASIO ID members from 27 July 2021, before opening orders for the public from 1 August 2021 online and in all physical G-SHOCK Stores.
In light of the collaboration, there will be a special installation at G-SHOCK MBS Premium where fans can know more about this collaboration and Tobyato starting from 1 August 2021.
This isn’t the first time the brand has worked with a Singapore artist. In the past, the Japanese watchmaker unveiled another limited edition collaboration with Singapore’s ‘Sticker Lady’ Sam Lo and local street artist Clogtwo.
