At merely 274 square miles in area, the city-state of Singapore is smaller than the City of New York as a whole. Yet, the Lion City of Southeast Asia accomplished what many considered to be impossible, that without any natural resources, the tiny city-state was able to attend the status of a regional economic power. With much pride and patriotic sentiments, Singaporeans will be celebrating their nation's 47th birthday this coming August 9th. Involving the festivities is this special adidas Originals NYC Watch - Singapore 47th National Day Edition. Featuring the artwork of Kenneth Wong, a designer who entered and won the adidas Originals design contest last year, the Singapore 47th National Day Edition includes the sturdy polycarbonate construct with dual time, 10 laps memory, chronograph and other handy functions. Added were Wong's playful graphics and youth culture influences in expressive black/red lines on white backdrop, a color scheme in reference to the Singapore flag. Limited to 470 units only, the watch will be available starting on August 1st. You can also pre-order the timepiece starting on July 18th and have the opportunity to receive a adidas laptop bag.
