Seiko Velatura Watch Collection: “Built for the oceans”
Seiko Velatura is another high performance watch collection designed by Seiko for men and women. These exquisitely designed Velatura watches combine innovation of function and precision to make one of the most demanding marine watches today for the needs of professional and recreational sailors.
The innovative part of the Seiko Velatura collection is the new calibers which drive these watches to perfection. They are namely the Kinetic Direct Drive (caliber 5D44) and the Yachting Timer (caliber 7T84).
Overall, the Seiko Velatura watch is a fairly wide watch but with its well contoured design it wears on smaller than it actually is. Velatura watches are very comfortable to wear with the variety of bracelets from leather to carbon fiber centre links bracelets. The designs are very neat and make the Velatura watch stands out from other Seiko or even other popular brands. Moreover, the hands and markers on the Velatura watches are coated with lumibrites which actually glows in the dark. The watches have a solid robust look and some Velatura watches for women have diamonds lined on the dial which make them a definite turn on for the ladies.
The main feature of the Velatura collection is the Kinetic Direct drive caliber. The watch is powered by the motion of the wearer’s hand which is similar to the normal Seiko Kinetic watches. However, the interesting bit here is that the Seiko Velatura watch can also be hand winded. There is a real time indicator of how much power is being generated during winding and it makes it a cool and unique way to interact with your watch.
On the other hand, the yachting Timer ( 7T84 ) feature on some Velatura watches, a pre-set yachting counter timer with auto-chrono start function, free-set countdown timer, chronograph, 2 alarms, local time and split time measurement.
Seiko Velatura Watches are here to stay.
