Crazy Rich Asians gave us a first glimpse into the glam side of Singapore. Now, watch company Mido is offering an exclusive inside scoop of Asia’s technology hub with a Rainflower collection inspired by an iconic piece of the Singapore skyline – the ArtScience Museum. If you’ve never thought to visit – which you certainly should – it’s a can’t-miss structure: from windows at the tip of each gallery letting in natural light, a reflection pond at the base that collects rainwater, to a large surrounding lilypond illuminating the night sky, it’s a dazzling array of features designed under sustainable motives. And, thanks to Mido’s womenswear collection, you’ll now be getting some of these natural elements attached to your very wrist. Inspired by the lilypond architecture, the dials are engraved with lotus flower detail, along with soft rounded curves catered to your love for nature’s diverse landscapes. Put it to good use at your next outdoor wedding shower, or a hike in some natural terrain thanks to a solid 80-hour power reserve. It also helps that each Rainflower watch comes in varying shades of sea blue, soft pink, grained white and tinted-brown that will pair well for your next venture into nature.
