Seiko’s new Philippine Limited Edition Prospex timepiece inspired by the Ifugao Rice Terraces

The latest offering of the classic timepiece brand pays tribute to the man-made wonder of the Cordillera Region

Even in the graying pages of history books, one cannot deny the glory that sits at the heart of the Cordillera Region in the Philippines. Despite being surrounded by great distances—some 348 km from the nation’s capital, and 1,500 m above sea level—the star attraction of this lush mountainous terrain has long enchanted many, with the winding, often arduous path a small price to pay to marvel at its magnificence up close. Throughout the years, the humanity and heritage carved into the Ifugao Rice Terraces have endured, proving that there is nothing quite like this wonder of the world.

The watch supports the effort to protect the man-made wonder.

The sacred traditions, folklore, and customs that surround the Ifugao Rice Terraces remain an inspiration to many. With its sweeping views and vistas, the pride of Ifugao inspired the commitment of classic timepiece brand Seiko to bring awareness to the conservation of the environment for future generations.

With timepieces crafted for the brave and on-the-go, Seiko has long championed ingenuity and innovation, thereby challenging and changing global standards. Since launching its first diver’s watch in 1965, the brand has constantly strived to bring greater reliability to both professional and recreational adventure seekers.

Seiko’s new Philippine Limited Edition Prospex watch

With its long-standing tradition of paying homage to Filipino culture, Seiko has introduced its Philippine Limited Edition Prospex series, a coming together of time, journey, and legacy. Launched in 2020 with a design inspired by the Tubbataha Reefs, the collection has persisted, referencing cultural icons such as the Philippine eagle and sunset.

Carefully designed and inspired by the Ifugao Rice Terraces, the new Philippine Limited Edition Prospex watch will not only be known for its exceptional function, but also as a timepiece that aims to preserve this breathtaking site, with every detail, element, and aspect brimming with adventure.

Its movement (caliber 4R35, automatic with manual winding, a power reserve of approximately 41 hours, and 23 jewels), case (stainless steel and bezel with ceramic display, sapphire crystal with magnifier, anti-reflective coating on inner surface, and LumiBrite on hand, indexes, and bezel), and water resistance of 200m/660 ft, as well as the ridging etched on its face, pay tribute to the Ifugao Rice Terraces. Limited to only 1,500 pieces, it’s a gem for collectors and enthusiasts alike.

For this endeavor, Seiko partners with the Save The Ifugao Terraces Movement (SITMo), the non-stock, non-profit, non-government organization formed by the Philippine Rural Reconstruction Movement. Extending its help for the preservation and conservation of the Ifugao Rice Terraces, which are in constant threat of deterioration, Seiko will donate a portion of the proceeds from the sales of the new watch to SITMo.

No matter how uncertain the adventure is, remember to keep going forward—just like the enduring man-made wonder that is the Ifugao Rice Terraces.
