Seiko Velatura Kinetic Men's-Ladies' Watches Review

Updated on January 6, 2015

Velatura: Marine Watches

Seiko Velatura collection offers marine watches suitable for a range of sea hobbies and professions. The Yachting Timer and the diver chronograph stand out as the most specialized timepieces, but other variations, such as the Kinetic Direct Drive (which allows to generate energy by winding the crown) are just as functional or effective.

Style

In Seiko Velatura, function takes precedence over style – not a surprising turn considering the purpose of these watches. There are literally over a dozen various functions, and you will have to research each piece separately to find your perfect blend of utilities. To mention a few, there are chronographs, uni-rotational bezels, various timers and indicators, alarms and markers, water resistance utility, and more.

Design

Each Velatura watch is a multifunctional time keeping instrument that demonstrates a highly busy dial, which may take some time to learn to read and use properly.

Velatura Hands

Seiko Velatura watches are notable for many reasons – but the variety of hands' shapes is one of the most striking. Velatura designers obviously took an artistic approach in regard to the minutes and hours hands: each consists of two diamond-like shapes linked at the center of the watch by the axis.

Men's and Ladies

Seiko Velatura Men's and Ladies' differ in several significant design characteristics. Velatura Men's come almost strictly with black dials, on which various sub-dials and indicators appear with the help of white, red and blue colors.

Velatura Ladies are available with white and pinkish faces, the latter employing mother-of-pearl. Men's are cast out of stainless steel (with carbon fiber in some models), and lack adornments, women's can be two-toned and include over fifty diamonds, set inside and outside the dial. In general, Velatura Ladies watches are less intense, and try to balance style and visuals with the functions.

Kinetic and Other Movements

The Majority of Seiko Velatura watches are equipped with an advance kinetic caliber, which propels the hands of the watch by exploiting the energy generated by the wearer's arm. Kinetic Direct Drive is unique in that it allows, in addition to the regular Kinetic movement, to produce energy by simply winding the crown.

This is an important feature that ensures that the watches remain active when the owner isn't. Other movements include alarm chronograph ( a combo of two functions) and automatic chronograph.
