Singaporean streetwear designer Mr Sabotage AKA Mark Ong has created a limited camouflage strap set for IWC.
Made from calfskin leather with a green tiger stripe camouflage pattern – that has become a signature of Ong’s Singaporean sneaker customisation and streetwear brand SBTG – the strap is offered in two different widths – 18mm and 21mm – allowing them to fit a wide range of IWC Pilot’s Watches.
“I first became aware of the camouflage motif when I was skateboarding back in the 1990s,” says Ong. “It was a defining moment for me, as it gave me inspiration to design streetwear by juxtaposing different elements. Over the years, camouflage-inspired patterns and colours have become synonymous with my work and brand, so it was clear from the onset that we would also incorporate these elements into the strap. We explored many different options and finally found something we were both happy with.”
The straps – available as boxed sets with pin buckle and spring bars – are available now in limited quantities via IWC priced £400 GBP (approximately $440 USD).
