Summary: This watch is big and elegant. Just the way I like my watch. The alarm is not loud, but the idea of having yachting watch with an alarm is for a wrist watch to wake you up while on the water and away from city noise. Otherwise get an alarm clock. The dimensions of this watch is clearly stated by Amazon, and it's big. So there shouldn't be any surprises. It is also heavier than most watches but you will get used to it soon.
Summary: I am a fan of alarm watches, especially vibration alarms, and have a Tissot. I couldn't find another good one for my self-inflicted birthday present and settled for a sound alarm watch, instead. It had to be largely if not completely analog and the Velatura Yacht Timer fit the bill in several of its functions, none of which relate to me on a yacht.
Summary: I had never been a fan of seiko watches but I was persuaded to buy the Velatura model after all the positive reviews I had read. This watch shouts quality and technology and is really impressive. If you also take into account the low price it was purchased -486 pounds- through amazon (the discount was real because my search was extensive. There were a few small variations in price offers but amazon product quality is guaranteed), it was actually a bargain.
Summary: Ich habe diese Uhr wo anders gekauft, sie sollte sich aber nicht unterscheiden da es von Seiko nur diese Ausführung (nicht Varianten, derer gibt es 4) gibt. Das Gehäuse besteht nicht aus Edelstahl, sondern aus Titan, welches nochmals Titanhartbeschictet wurde. Ein nicht ganz unwesentlicher Unterschied, denn eine Edelstahlausführung dürfte ca. 200-250 Gramm wiegen, die Velatura wiegt nur gewogene 80,4 Gramm.
