Axis Watch is not new for me, I’ve seen them and I owned one of the promo watches that was launched during the Man of Steel movie, I also saw the limited edition Man of Steel watch that is made from stainless steel and powered by Japan Movement gears.

Axis Watch is a local brand of watch that uses Japan Movement, it’s a clock gear and spring that is the heart and soul of the watch , it’s a rival to a Swiss Movement, but Japan Movement in Axis Watch is works good, competitive and also less expensive.

Axis Watch price range is from PHP 2.5k up to PHP 6k, depends on the design and the Japan Movement gear used in the watch.

The most highlighted part of the event is the art exhibit of our local artist, many call them junk artist or scrap metal artist. Ram Mallari, Buds Convocar and Salvador Ching are known to many art collectors as master art builder of many things. Each of their artworks will be up for auction and the proceed will be donated to Children’s Hour.

ART details:

The works of each participating artist are an artistic translation of the concept of time.

Ram Mallari turns discards into works of art. His mixed media assemblages have garnered attention and praise. Mallari’s Axis artwork is called “Time Voyager”. His work consists mainly of metal discards combined with plastics and other non-metal discarded materials that were welded together.
He is hoping that this piece will help raise more awareness on recycling and its value. Ram wants to inspire people to turn scraps into creative and functional pieces and in the process, help them understand the value of his work and its purpose.

Before pursuing a full time career in painting, Buds Convocar spent his early years in the academe handling a wide array of art subjects such as Design, Illustration, Typography, Painting and Cartooning.

His Axis work is entitled “We All Need More Time”. It communicates the need for balance -- to focus on the challenges that confront us but still make time for the people we love, especially in celebrating our triumphs.

Salvador “Buddy” J. Ching is a full-time, multi-awarded Painter, Installation and Performance Artist. His work is entitled “Oras-yon” which is part of the Women of Malolos Series. His work is inspired by the memories of the past and represents the images of our history.

Before the opening of the art exhibit. Axis Watch pulls off an awesome statue or time freeze mob performance. Lots of people wearing Axis Watches are frozen for 15 minutes and it captured the attention of mall goers and even security guards, and many of them visit the site to check out what’s going on.
