Intermezzo #69: Support the Dutch entry on G-Sessions Europe by Team OntFront

To cellebrate the 30th anniversary of G-Shock, Casio organizes the G-Sessions in Europe. Local talent gets the opportunity to design a G-Shock model. Teams from 7 cities in Europe worked each on their own design.
One of these teams consist of Amsterdam based based artists lead by OntFront, with Filling Pieces, Ceizer, URBMATH. I love the motto of OntFront: We knows the rules of classic menswear and loves to break them. You can see this cback on this DW-6900 model. The team made a concept model wrapped in leather, creating a very cool new look. The leather work was done by Tine and Maarten Krijnen, who are specialized in miniature book binding.

The public can vote for which watch is their favorite. As this concept watch looks very nice, I would like to vote for this model. If it gets the most votes, a limited run will be produced (200 pcs). Do you also think this is a very cool concept watch and would you like to have this model in production, please vote for the Amsterdam entry "Time is Rough & Tough  like Leather" (after a line in the Wu-Tang Clan song C.R.E.A.M.) here: G-Sessions Europe The Creatives. You can also win VIP tickets to the final event in Berlin, including the flight and 3-day stay and maybe you can even win one of these G-Shocks.
