The Adidas three-leafed Trefoil is so iconic its almost hard to imagine an Adidas without it. To be fair, before 1972—when said logo was born—no one could have imagined that such branding would go on to become one of the world’s most iconic. Wait, ’72? Yes, it has been 40 years since Adidas bore upon us the Trefoil. To celebrate, they are releasing a limited edition, gold-plated, solid steel wristwatch. It will feature a rotating bezel, hydraulically stamped memorial trefoil and, well, adidas originals style. Only 500 are being made, each with their own numbered stamp (so don’t buy a bogus one). The 40th Anniversary Trefoil watch will be available on June 16 at www.shopadidas.com and pre-orders are available now at www.watchstation.com. The 40th Anniversary Trefoil watch will retail for $395.

Even if Arnold Schwarzenegger has become wont of surprises (and guilty behavior), we were still struck with it upon learning that the 2 term governor had teamed up with GiltMAN to sell a limited edition set of watches he helped to design. The collab comes under the auspices of celebrating the Governator’s 2 served terms but its also working as a charity to get said politician, out of the proverbial gutter—Schwarzenegger is donating every single dollar made on them to After School All-Stars, a non profit that provides daily comprehensive after-school programs to nearly 81,000 children for free. And holy sh*t, politics aside, the watch is actually kind of handsome. The story…after the jump.
Can you take the heat? British designer Christopher Raeburn (British Fashion Award and Newgen Men Award winner) will make sure you can. He’s crafted the entirety of his Fall 2012 collection out of Nomex, otherwise known as the fireproof textile, aka what firemen wear. Befitting of a man named Raeburn. Anyway, preview the slick looking collection, check out this cool video of just how fireproof his garments are and stay tuned for sales info once the summer, er, scorch, is over.
