Digital watches have first appeared on the watch market in the sixties but their top fame came in the Eighties known as Quartz watches. However, their fame got lower and as of today, the most popular watches are still the mechanical watches while the usage of digital watches is more or less limited to cheap trendy or for the professional timers and sports watches. Singapore is a very sporty nation and therefore the number of sport stores is high here. Also, thanks to its closeness to Japan, Japanese digital watches are quite popular in Singapore too. So, let us see where we can get digital watches in this beautiful city.
