Introducing integrated silicone straps, exciting new dial colors, stainless steel and gold cases, elegance and convenience go hand in hand. Combining 100-meter water resistance with the choice to pick colors suitable for any occasion, all Veloci timepieces remain looking current and fresh, adventure after adventure.

It’s no surprise, then, that Hideo and Catriona were chosen as endorsers. Aside from being fans of Veloci ever since, both are more than their looks and attractive bodies, just like the brand. Hideo is an avid sportsman who’s into soccer, Crossfit, and Muay Thai. He cites his Voyager and Pulse pieces as go-to watches. “I like the changeable stripes. You can be very creative and make your own unique style,” Hideo shares. “The value you get for the price is definitely a big plus. I keep many Veloci watches because they have a large variety that can match any outfit, from the gym to casual days to parties like this.”

On the other hand, Catriona is a formally trained singer whose voice has a lovely jazz texture.The Filipina-Scottish stunner also

likes to write about her travel adventures on her blog. For Catriona, wearing a watch instantly makes one feel like a go-getter, and shows that one has functionality and style. “I love classic and feminine watches in gold, especially rose gold. But on days when I play up my style, I’ll reach for a bold color,” she says. “I’ve hauled my Veloci watches all over Asia and they’ve never let me down, from a watch I can wear at the gym to sophisticated evenings out. Most watches in the collection also come with customizable straps, so there’s really no limit of possibilities.”

The All-White Pool Party served as the perfect canvass for showcasing Veloci’s fresh new collection, from exquisite bright colors that are perfect for tropical sunshiny days, to time-tested classics that tastefully accessories an outfit. Proof that Veloci is a watch that can take you anywhere you want to go. (Photo credits:  Ramon Tan Mangila www.pixrepublik.com.ph)

#WhyNotBoth: Unveiling The TW Steel Slim Collection

TW1307-horz

Who says you need to choose between a slim or an oversized watch? TW Steel gives you the best of both worlds, and introduces the newest addition to its roster of bold and elegant timepieces, the TW Steel Slim Collection

 

There’s no doubt that the renowned Dutch brand TW Steel is constantly innovating and carving a niche for itself in the watchmaking industry. Known for being a giant in the oversized watch market, TW Steel raises the bar by creating a new concept — a dressier, slicker oversized watch that bodes well with crisp white shirts and perfectly tailored suits.


“I think it was important for us, as a brand, to be able to offer a collection of models that are more directly suited for formal, business or dress attire,” stated TW Steel’s Chief Design Officer, Ton Cobelens. “In order to do that, a slim watch was the only option as functionality becomes a priority for the wearer, in particular the need to have a timepiece that fits well on the wrist and equally under a shirt.”

 

The Slim Line range is comprised of 10 executions, available only in 45mm dimension, with either steel or A-grade PVD rose gold plated cases. All models utilize a Miyota 1S13 slim movement housed in a case which features a shine finish, adding an additional visual appeal to these sleek and slender pieces.

The TW1300 to TW1305 models sport a stylish turn edge leather croco-print strap, with the familiar two dots amended in position and size slightly in keeping with the slender design.

The TW1306 and TW 1307, on the other hand, feature steel bracelets while TW1308 and TW1309 are presented with steel bracelets resplendent in A-grade PVD rose gold plating.

 

All models in the Slim Line Collection are embellished with sapphire crystals, while additional highlights of the new range include the use of sunray dials, with matching hands and numbers, all with a shine finish in keeping with the cases. Championing both form and function, each model is also 5 ATM water resistant.

In this new collection, TW Steel clearly proves that a slim and oversized watch is not an oxymoron as a fashion statement. It eloquently challenges what a regular watch should be, and should look like. Why just be an oversized watch when you can also couple it with a slim strap, and take on a more formal look?

With this in mind, the Slim Line Collection’s grand entrance in Manila is set to the #WhyNotBoth theme, a campaign that highlights three personalities in the social scene who have successfully balanced a multifaceted life.

Nico Bolzico, a successful and well-traveled economist, also doubles as a polo aficionado when he’s not dressed in his bespoke suits. Sebastian Ripoll, an accomplished strength and conditioning coach, also works as a producer for a documentary series with ABS-CBN called Team U. James Younghusband, on the other hand, is a celebrated football player and right midfielder for the Philippine Azkals, and also spearheads the Younghusband Football Academy.

 

Bolzico, Ripoll, and Younghusband lead very vibrant lives, and are each committed to not only living out their dreams, but also making sure that they share that with others as well. They embody the qualities that the Slim Line Collection espouses — that there is no either or, but simply, a delicate balancing act. Are there any signs of them slowing down? Slim chance.
