G-SHOCK x Against Lab Special Collaboration Model

Casio Singapore announced a remarkable collaboration model with fashion brand, Against Lab. This is the G-SHOCK x Against Lab Special Collaboration Model, a limited edition G-SHOCK DW-6900AL22 in Singapore. This limited edition G-SHOCK is a SEA exclusive model.

The DW-6900 model was first released in 1995, that was the first G-SHOCK to feature an EL backlight. The backlight’s ability to display text or a symbol became a popular feature. This series also won fans as a “Triple Graph” model, it has remained just a popular to this day. This watch is shock-resistant and has 200m water resistance.

This watch takes inspiration from the superhuman mental toughness of folks who wake up and ride their motorcycle to work, enduring the heat, rain, and occasional road bullies. This special collaboration model embodies the ultimate Malaysia spirit – The Grind. The right time to grind is Anytime.

Motorcycle culture is one of many strong identities of Malaysian society. The motorcyclist spirit reflects the ethos of G-shock, both built by toughness. Almost every Malaysian has their own experience with a motorcycle – Meant to be cheap, easy to maintain, reliable. A small motorcycle is used as a tool for conducting business. Name any task, and it has probably done it.

The design language of motorcycle components is adopted as the main design element for this collaboration. The overall look is matte black and packed with subtle details. The unique elements are the custom AGAINST tire tread graphic and the brand slogan “ALL ENDEAVOUR, NO SURRENDER”, both printed on the watchband.

A clean “AGAINST” mini logo font is on the watch face, accompanied by a hidden “A” logo backlight. The metal chrome watch face resembles the material of motorcycle exhaust pipes, while the orange outline is the color of signal lights. Finally, the whole concept is completed with the engraved steel backing of AGAINST LAB’s brand mascot, “A-Man”.
