To mark G-SHOCK’s milestone 30th anniversary in Singapore, this year’s “SHOCK THE WORLD 2013” tour in Singapore was held at The Coliseum, Hard Rock Hotel, at the Resorts World Sentosa.

The event featured the unveiling of limited edition stylised G-SHOCK watches designed by local design icon, Keith Png, who has dressed international movie stars like Zhang Ziyi and the design collective duo, Andrew Loh and Kenny Lim of Depression, who are known across Asia for their signature bold, monochromatic designs.
