The purpose of Seiko’s Velatura watch series is to be able to withstand the most severe challenges a watch can face. Since his introduction in 2007, Velatura has gradually become an indispensable watch for professional sailing athletes. It’s sturdy and versatile, and that’s what it takes to survive in the toughest conditions. In 2009, 5 new sailing watches were added to the Velatura series, each of which has the same high level of craftsmanship as its outstanding predecessors.
The new spiral crown ensures water resistance of 20 bar.
In 2009, SEIKO increased its sponsorship of the most advanced sailing events. In addition to extending its agreement with the 49er Association, SEIKO also signed a new contract with the 29erXX Association. Its newly designed sailing boat was quickly accepted by the best female sailors in the world. The new contract was celebrated at the launch of the new women’s Velatura watch collection.
