I never leave home without a watch. It’s the one accessory I always have to wear everyday, wherever I go. Not only can I mix and match it with my outfit, it’s functional too. I have a small watch collection—I have at least one for every style and purpose: casual wear, sports, water-resistant for beach trips, backlit for night events, formal, business, and everyday wear. I can never have enough watches. Think your outfit is bare? Just add an eye-catching timepiece and you’re set.

It’s the versatility of watches that makes them a smart way to upgrade one’s outfit and a great gift. Need a belated Father’s Day gift? Want a new watch for school? Or do you just simply want an excuse to add another hip timepiece to your collection (perhaps you don’t have a baby pink one yet)? For whatever reason, I’m sure you’ll find something you’ll like from the latest collections of one of my favorite watch brands, Veloci.

My new Veloci watch from its new Cruise collection. Can’t get over how pretty this pink shade is!

The Italian-inspired watch brand is known for pieces that combine statement-making designs with comfort, durability, and functionality. The same can be said of its newest collections, which were launched at a pool party and fashion show in the hippest new party place and first of its kind in the Philippines, The Palace Pool Club.

The new collections boast of integrated silicone straps, exciting new dial colors, and stainless steel and gold cases. It’s water-resistant up to 100 meters and comes in various colors to suit various occasions and personal styles, making them look current and fresh wherever you are, whenever you wear them.

Veloci timepieces from the Cruise collection

If you’re more into laid-back and low-key accessories, you might find a piece you like from the Cruise collection, whose integrated silicone straps come in different punches of color: red, blue, black, and pink for the stainless steel case version; black for the gold PVD version; and black and blue for the rose gold PVD version. The minimalist design of the case with matching colors for the dials and strap exude effortless style. The Cruise collection is great for casual occasions. If you’re looking for an everyday watch for school or work, this is perfect.

Do you have an active lifestyle and are very particular about the features of your timepiece? The Pulse collection might impress you. With dual time display, stopwatch and alarm, as well as an illuminator and a fuss-free rubber strap, it’s a statement watch whose presence is felt with every pulse. New models come in combinations of black and blue, black and red, all black, and white and gray. It’s great for adventurous, on-the-go individuals who want versatile, statement-making, and highly-functional watches. Why not get this as a belated Father’s Day present?

Veloci fashion show featuring brand ambassadors Hideo Muraoka and Catriona Gray

Great for marine enthusiasts and anyone who loves the sea, the Voyager collection is characterised by unidirectional rotating bezel and lavish dials with day-date display. In sizes of 40 and 44mm, six new color configurations with matching silicone colored straps are out: black and grey for stainless steel; black and white for gold PVD version; and black and blue for rose gold PVD version. This collection is great for those whose activities include going underwater, sailing the seas, and going on various adventures all over the globe. Dad might want a piece from this collection, too!
