IT WAS a starry night at the Skye Lounge when Technomarine launched its collaboration with a global icon—the one, multi-titled, Manny Pacquiao- who some people call the greatest fighter at the moment.
Guests like of Pops Fernandez, Cesar Montano, Gloria Diaz and Philippine Azkal, Anton del Rosario feasted on appetizers like Croquetas de Chorizo made with Spanish sausage, Caesar Salad. The Paella Valenciana with mixed seafood like mussels, squid, and chorizo were enjoyed by the guests. A boneless roulade of chicken cooked Iberian style and tender beef salpicao with chili and topped with roasted garlic. Callos, the slow cooked ox tripe with chorizo and garbanzos was clearly a favorite. Also spotted at the event were businessmen Chris Dizon, stylist Maricar de Mesa, bag designer Lally Dizon, contractors Small Laude and Alice Eduardo, and porcelain skinned Linda Ley in her usual best dressed garb.

Skye Lounge was decorated with a spectrum of red, blue and yellow centered by a mini boxing ring.
While waiting for Pacman’s arrival, guests were entertained by the wit and beauty of event hosts Borgy Manotoc and Georgina Wilson.
But the arrival of Manny Pacquiao was really what kicked the night off. Every single person wanted a photo taken with him!
TechnoMarine, the Swiss brand known for its bold yet distinctive timepieces, teams up with no less than the world’s pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao to bring yet another winning creation. The limited edition “Manny Pacquiao 8” or simply MP8 is a testament to TechnoMarine’s continuous, innovation, dedication to style and fine craftsmanship.
“We are extremely pleased to introduce the limited edition MP8 to the Philippines,” states Rex Mendoza, director of Techno Time Retailers Corp., the exclusive distributor of TechnoMarine in the Philippines. “This timepiece is very limited with only 1,000 pieces that will be produced worldwide.”
MP8 takes inspiration from the country’s very own boxing champ and his unprecedented global achievements. TechnoMarine associates with the world’s best and this partnership with the Pacman is no exception.
The features are evident right from MP8’s eye-catching dial. The number “8” prominently stands out on the face of the watch, symbolizing Pacquiao’s eight world boxing championship titles alongside a yellow sun. The additional red and blue details that accentuate the silver dial give the MP8 an unmistakable Filipino connection. It still retains the signature wave pattern alluding to the water element that has become TechnoMarine’s signature look.
Adding a stylish touch is the red strap that can be interchanged with a white one. Limited edition yellow and blue straps are sold separately to match every mood.
The TechnoMarine MP8 is more than just another bold statement in watch-making. It underlies a timely partnership between an esteemed luxury brand and one of the world’s accomplished professional athletes. This partnership amplifies the brand’s innovative spirit – one that fuses bold designs with the luxury of a fine Swiss watch.
Isn’t that something? A Global watch brand with a watched designed by a well-loved Filipino.
This watch is one for the books!
