The design is based off the G-SHOCK model, AW-500BB-4EDR, which is a revival of the first analog G-SHOCK AW-500. The case and band is in a striking red, with the strap featuring a white lion motif throughout.

Of the watch design, Toby says, “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. For this year’s National day watch, I used the colours red and white to create a design that show my gratitude to this tough, small resilient island home.”
The National Day Watch will be available at gshock.casio.com/sg only for CASIO ID members from 27 July 2021, and will be available for the public from 1 August 2021 at all G-SHOCK Stores.
If you want to find out more about the design, there’s also going to be a special installation of this watch at G-SHOCK MBS Premium from 1 August 2021.
