What is Ibarra?

Ibarra is the first Filipino brand that locally assembles watches using world class materials.


What is Ibarra’s Story?

Ibarra was founded in Manila, Philippines by physicist and watch enthusiast Nico Moreno. Moreno worked with a group of young local watch technicians to assemble watches in Manila carrying the dream of establishing a Filipino watch brand globally. Each Ibarra timepiece is made of world class materials and parts manufactured specifically for the brand. The brand is inspired by classic dress timepieces.

What are we crowdfunding?

We are crowdfunding the Salvador Automatic and the Plaridel Quartz.

The Salvador is a World-Timer made for Filipinos here and abroad. With Manila placed as one of the timezones on the bezel, Filipinos abroad can feel a lot closer to home while those at home can feel closer to their loved ones abroad.

The Plaridel Quartz is a more affordable variant of The President’s Watch, The Plaridel. It is a classic dress timepiece that features a domed-glass.


Why are we crowdfunding?

Ibarra Watches strongly believe in Bayanihan. And through this crowdfunding campaign, Ibarra Watches will be able to further develop and establish the brand in the market. As the brand grows, we will be able to help and build the dreams of young watch technicians of creating timepieces which we can offer the world.


What can backers get from this?

Our backers will receive rewards corresponding to their contribution. Watches will be ready in November. We will be updating each individual who supported the campaign on the developments on the watch. Also, each backer will be thanked for taking part of the Filipino movement we intend to build!

Frequently Asked Questions

The Salvador World Timer houses an automatic Miyota movement in its ion-plated case that is Water Resistant up to 50 meters (5 ATM). The watch has a flat scratch-proof Sapphire crystal. The different world timezones are engraved on the rotating bezel and a chapter ring is added on the dial to indicate the 24-hour markers. The strap is made of double-sided calfskin leather to make it more resistant to sweat, smog, odor deposits.
The Miyota 8215 is a non-hacking twenty-one (21) jewel three-hand with date movement with a uni-directional winding system (left rotation) with an accuracy of -20 to +40 seconds per day, and a power reserve of over 40 hours. The diameter of the movement is 26 mm and the thickness is 5.67 mm. It beats at 21,600 BPH or 3 Hz (6 half-cycles per second).
The watch is assembled in the Philippines using world-class materials sourced from Switzerland, Japan, and China. The Filipino touch comes in the assembling of the watch where talented local technicians carefully put together and quality release each timepiece.
The watch rewards are scheduled to be released on the 3rd week of November. If applicable, Ibarra Watches will be getting in touch with the backers individually to confirm their final choice of watch prior to the scheduled distribution of rewards. Discount Voucher Rewards will be distributed every final week of the month.

    Good day, Mr. Binauhan. The parts are sourced from overseas. They are custom-made our timepieces. We assemble them in Manila.

    May I ask do you fabricate the parts locally? or import for assembly?
