2020 marks the 55th anniversary of Singapore's independence and G-Shock is collaborating with local artist and illustrator Adeline Tan, aka mightyellow, to create a limited edition watch.
There isn't any overt allusions to Singapore's birthday. Instead, the watch features fiery and dynamic motifs that is supposed to invoke the tropical landscape of Singapore and celebrates the diversity and resilience of its people. It also comes in a specially designed box.
Adeline Tan said of the collaboration:
Two years after independence, Singapore set herself a vision to become a garden city. From wild mangroves and jungles to orchids and gingers, the little island reinvented itself over and over. At 55 years of age, it is a metropolis that kept her biodiversity thriving and her people adaptable. This design is inspired by her ever-changing landscape.
Like all other G-Shock watches, the G-Shock x mightyellow GA-140 Limited Edtion watch is water resistant to 200 metres and features a long list of functions including world time, a 1/1000 stopwatch, a countdown timer, and the ability to set up to five alarms.
The G-Shock x mightyellow GA-140 Limited Edtion watch will go sale on 25 July 2020 and will be priced at S$219. It will be available at all G-Shock boutiques except the one at IMM.
