Nixon Welcomes the New:

A Launch Event and Media Preview of the Season 2-2012 Line

The way it holds your wrists to make you feel secure, how it wakes you up in time to let your rise along with the sun, how it reminds you that it’s a quarter after three and the waves are good and you need to be out there, the manner its style fits with yours without fault no matter where you take it—some things are designed this way; intended to come alive as you come alive.

 

 

Nixon, the watch, audio and accessories brand from Southern California, follows such design. And just recently, it held a launch event and media preview of its Season 2-2012 last July 5, 2012 at 7th High, Bonifacio High Street as it officially set foot on Philippine shores.

 

The event fronted how this new collection is yet another expression of who the Nixon brand is crafted for: unique individuals with unique tastes—as evinced by the notable personalities from multifaceted outfits that graced the night. SinoSikat – both from the music industry.


The roster included Philippine Daily Inquirer’s Isabel Roces, Chalk Magazine’s Nana Caragay, Status Magazine’s Rosario Herrera, Calibre Magazine’s Bert Casal and Kit Payumo, and FHM Philippines’ Anton Umali, Gelo Gonzales, and Mich Lagdameo from the publishing industry; RunRio Inc.’s Rio dela Cruz and Nicole Wuthrich, and Manila Surfing Association’s Ameline Cedilla, Tonet Jose, Mark Mabanag and Zoe Lim from the sports industry; and Havaianas Philippines’ Ammiel de Leon, Zalora’s Paolo Campos and Regine King, Robinson’s Kristine Ituralde, Christine Guinto and Matet Libongco, SM’s Gerald Tidoy and Rustan’s Lana Lotho, Leilanie Ancheta, Monika Reunilla and Bam Besa from the retail industry; Wolfgang’s Manuel Legarda and Allen Umali of
“Nixon caters to the needs and desires of everyone—whether you’re from the turfs of surf, skate, music, photography or the arts,” as Marko Yeo, Brand Manager of Nixon Southeast Asia describes it. “There’s nothing generic, no bland catch-alls; instead, this collection aims for the exceptional.”
Team-designed, and custom-built, Nixon’s latest line introduced fresh flavors like Leopard Print Acetate, the ultra-utilitarian All Black Nylon, the shockingly vibrant Orange Bang, along with a dose of dreamy Rose Gold/Chocolate watches to name a few—revealing the brand’s sports heritage, as well as its contemporary fashion.

A race has always been considered as a grueling form of workout, combine that with cycling and swimming and exhaustion is just a mere distance away. This however, would just be a piece of cake for the participants of the 2nd TIMEX 226 Bohol Triathlon. The said event which began last year will be initiating its second leg this coming December 1, 2012 at the Anda Beach, Bohol. The province well known to be the home of the wide-eyed tarsiers and chocolate hills will test the vigor and strength of the athletic buffs who were brave enough to answer the challenge of this fast-paced event known as the triathlon.
Even as Anda is known for its pristine beaches and natural beauty, when the race starts and everyone is on their heels, this paradise will turn into a field of obstacle that the participants would have to face. Garnering a distance of 42km on land, 3.8km in water and 180km on bike, this would have to be one of the toughest and longest race in the Philippines. And being spearheaded by none other than Bike King, it will be a race of epic proportions, as they were also the mind and body behind the success of the Tri United Series, Active Health Duathlon and last year’s Timex 226.
In the hopes of continuing the same action-packed race from last year, the retention of certain elements from the first TIMEX 226 Bohol Triathlon, which was held last December 3, 2011, will definitely be implemented, but with additional route changes this time around, aiming to make a better race, a more fun-filled adventure and a higher level of excitement.
As of October 2012, there are already 80 participants and countingwho are getting ready to take on 226 kilometers of pure adrenalin and precision movement, for at this type of competitions, its’ every person for himself/herself and every second counts. And while there are some who participated last year and signed up again for another round of action, there are also a majority of new faces, including multi-awarded coach, athlete, and member of the Timex Multisport Team, Ani de Leon-Brown.
With everyone anticipating the official start of the race, it would be safe to say that practicing to be accurate is the key to snagging the first place at the finish line, and when right timing is of the greatest goal, look no further than with Timex, the watch that revolutionizes every athlete’s need, from telling the distance, depth or simply the cold or warmness of the terrain. Timex, a companion to the rough side of the race.

Giordano Timewear lights up Brighter Futures

In this era, nothing can be more important to a young soul dreaming of a good life but to be able to go to school. It does not only provide the key for a better tomorrow but almost automatically opens the door for bigger and wide array of opportunities.

Ironically, what is supposed to be the less fortunate’s only hope to depart from poverty also happens to be one of the things they can’t get a hold of. Fortunately, there are people who dedicate themselves to guiding them so they reach this shining dream. Keeping hope burning for young Pinoy dreamers is Giordano Timewear, world-renowned brand recognized for bringing in the flair of the urban lifestyle with its stylishly designed watches. And this time, a name worthy of praise for taking a bold step towards helping underprivileged kids get proper schooling.

Partnering with a Christian relief organization aimed to transform lives of oppressed children, World Vision, the brand supports the largest child sponsorship agency through its array of hip and vibrant multi-colored timewears, the Giordano Brights Collection. A project that started late of last year, the advocacy is meant to help the organization take more children to classrooms through a P100 donation garnered from every purchase of any Giordano Brights item. In just less than a year after, 10 fortunate kids from Malabon City benefited from the joint venture.

Recently in an afternoon of kiddie feast and entertainment provided by Funranch in Tiendesitas in Pasig City, Giordano Timewear officially turned over the amount of more than P100, 000 to World Vision’s area development program, which guarantees a two-year annual sponsorship plan for each of the young minds. Held at Fun Ranch in Tiendecitas Pasig Mr. Boris Joacquin, Director of Publicis in Ministry of World Vision, elaborated however that the advancement work doesn’t simply end there. “Thereafter, they are provided with the resources to meet identified needs, the end objective of which is to make these families and communities sustainable in the long-term – communities that are conducive for children to live life in all its fullness,” said Mr. Joacquin.

With the success of the joint venture, Giordano Timewear celebrates with watch lovers and gives them more reasons to be colorfully hip with the addition of new dynamic hues to the Giordano Brights Collection. From the existing yellow, white, red, green, pink, blue and black, one can now also choose from either baby blue, baby pink and purple timepieces. These high-quality time accessories bears the vibrant ceramic look which also serves as stylish reminders that kids from the other part of the country were able to receive proper schooling simply because of choosing on being part of a modish cause.

As the only treasure that one can use and keep for the entirety of his life, schooling indeed is more than a necessity. With a significant number of hopefuls still left behind, Giordano Timewear prompts everyone to also take a moment in showing concern for others, specifically to young dreamers who wishes nothing but a fair shot at education.

Giordano Timewear is exclusively distributed by Newtrends International Corp and is available at any Watch Republic outlet or leading department stores nationwide.
