• A Timepiece for the Adventurous



    With several outdoor activities for adventure-seekers, Cebu is never without any options. There's skydiving in Bantayan; snorkeling, canyoneering and scuba diving in Moalboal; and mountain climbing in Dalaguete, Cebu's highest peak, to name a few. All these activities require a quality timepiece that matches one's active lifestyle.

    With this in mind, Seiko Watch Corporation opened the first Prospex Boutique outside Japan to provide quality outdoor timepieces for sports lovers and thrill-seekers. The Seiko Prospex Boutique in Cebu is located at Level 2 of Ayala Center Cebu.

    Prospex is Seiko’s leading sports watch collection renowned for its high functionality whether on land, at sea or in the sky, and has won acclaim and the trust of professionals across the world. It stemmed from Seiko’s introduction of Japan’s first diver’s watch in 1965 which used innovative technology and changed global standards in producing timepieces for diving.

    Leading the opening of the Prospex Boutique in Cebu last September 27, 2019 were Timeplus Corporation Vice President and Digital Marketing Officer Edric Dy; Timeplus Corporation President Karl Dy; SEIKO Watch Corporation Director and Senior Vice President Yoshikatsu Kawada; and Hana Harada from the SEIKO Prospex Management Planning Department.

    Guests were treated to drinks and cocktails in the exhibit area at Level 1, near Oh Georg! where select Seiko Prospex timepieces were on display, highlighting the collection's heritage, features and functions. The event was also graced by mom and actress, Kaye Abad-Castillo; Cebu City Councilor and former Philippine Basketball Association player Dondon Hontiveros; and Maria Noella Zosa, a member of the Philippine freediving team—Seiko's brand ambassadors who got the first glimpse of the Prospex timepieces.

    “I’m so glad to have opened the second Prospex Boutique here in Cebu because it is a sacred destination for marine sports lovers," said Kawada.

    The Prospex collection features five unique series: the Sea, Sky, Land, Street and LX, all of which embody wearability, comfort, the fusion of practicality and aesthetics, as well as functionality for all kinds of outdoor adventures.

    The Sea Series is the ideal timepiece for all types of water activities from swimming to scuba diving, the Sky Series is designed for pilots and frequent world travellers, and the Land Series is perfect for trekking and camping. The Street Series is a line of sports watches for the urban explorer, designed with enhanced durability for everyday use like exploring, shopping, or running errands in the city.

    Seiko Prospex’s latest series, the LX Line, incorporates its Land and Sky models with its classic 1968 divers watch, and features a spring drive movement in its timepieces, promising reliability in various sports activities, from diving to mountain climbing.

    The Seiko Prospex Boutique in Cebu is the seventh Seiko boutique in the country. An eighth boutique will open in November 2019 at Ayala Malls Manila Bay, Parañaque City.
