Seiko Velatura Yachting Timer

seiko yacht timer review

Launched in 2007, Seiko’s Velatura collection is designed to withstand the rigors of open ocean racing. For 2009, Seiko improves the the Velatura Yachting Timer, making it lighter, tougher, and more resistant to the elements. The case is made from titanium, covered with a new hard coating. The watch has a new screw-in crown system that ensures water resistance to 20 bar or 200 meters. A new strap combines leather and ballistic nylon to offer a blend of good looks and strength. The dial is also new, with the pre-set start times highlighted in bright yellow and blue for easier legibility.

There’s also a new model for women – the Velatura women’s chronograph. It is available in stainless steel with regular or mother-of-pearl dials, both of which are set with 16 diamonds. This piece is also available with a choice of leather strap or stainless steel bracelet.

The men’s Yachting Timer retails for about 950 Euro, and the women’s chronograph ranges from Euro 590-640. You may click the images to view larger versions.

Regatta Yachttimers

An overview of sailing regatta watches.

The Seiko company was founded in 1881, when Kintarō Hattori opened a watch and jewelry shop in Tokyo. Eleven years later, in 1892, he founded the company Seikosha Co, where initially wall clocks were produced. Soon they were followed by pocket watches and watches with an alarm function. In 1913 Seiko (which means ‘precision’ in Japanese) manufactured its first wristwatch, and today the brand is well known for its inventions over the years.

Already in 1958 Seiko started with the developement of quartz movements, which let to the first commercial quartz wristwatch of the world in 1969, the Seiko Quartz Astron. The brand’s tradition in sports timing started at the 1964 Olympic Games in Tokyo, where they served as Official Timekeeper. Ever since Seiko has been involved in many sports events, eg athletics, football and sailing.

Early 1980’s Seiko developed the caliber 7A28, the world’s first analog quartz chronograph. This fully adjustable quartz movement has no plastic parts in the gear train and can be sericed and adjusted like a mechanical watch. In the years to follow the caliber 7A28 was used in a great number of different models. The 7A28-7020, for example, was worn by Roger Moore in the 1985 James Bond movie  ‘A View To A Kill’.

Seiko Yacht Timer Quartz 7A28-7090, ref. SAY080.

The 7A28-7090 regatta variant debuted in 1982 as the first real Seiko Yacht Timer, and appeared in catalogs as of 1983. It immediately stood out for its design. With the two big pushers at 10 and 2 o’clock it looked similar to a bullhead chronograph. The 9 o’clock minutes sub register features a 30-minutes counter, devided in 6 x 5 minutes in alternately light and royal blue, and a distinct yellow hand. On the outer ring of the dial there’s the yachting countdown scale for the seconds, running backwards from 60 to zero. After 1985 the Seiko Yacht Timer Quartz 7A28-7090 disappeared from the catalogs and the production ceased.

x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x – x

Second half of the 1980’s Seiko developed a new four jewel quartz chronograph, the caliber 8M. Besides setting the time, it also uses the crown as a selection tool by which you can choose the mode of the watch, as shown in one of the registers. It has a countdown (timer) function, what makes it highly suitable for a yachting watch. In timer-mode the movement runs actualy counterclockwise! The countdown timer can be set by one-minute intervals between 1and 30 minutes, or you can choose between one of the preset timers for 5, 10 or 15 minutes.

From early 1990 Seiko produced two series of yacht timer watches, the 8M35 and the 8M37 models . Compared to the 8M35 models, the 8M37 models have the movement mounted ‘up-side-down’. That automatically means the crown and pushers are placed on opposite sides.

Cal. 8M35-6000 with leather strap, two-tone case and bracelet (ref. SEQ008J) and full gold (ref. SEQ010J). Note the three different collorscemes of the inner compass.

In time-mode, when the watch shows the actual time, the hour hand seems a bit odd. More like a seconds hand actually. But when you switch to timer mode, you understand why. This hand then becomes the second hand for an accurate countdown. And as I said before, the movement runs counterclockwise in timer mode. In a short period of years, from 1990 upto 1993, several yachttimer models were released by Seiko.

Cal. 8M35-6010, the more rare silver version, cal. 8M35-8000/8009 (ref. SEQ001P) and 8M35-800A (ref. SEQ003P) with a plastic blue or black turnable bezel.

Both cal. 8M37-6000, either with a silver case and dial (ref. SBBH005) or with a black case and dial (ref. SBBH007). Originally with a black rubber strap.

Both cal. 8M37-7000, ref. SBBH009. Note the different selection tools.

Finally the cal. 6M37-8000, ref. SBBH013, and the 6M37-8019, ref. SGX006. The last one was released for the 1992 USA Olympic games.

You can download the Operating Instructions for the caliber 8M35 here , and a 8M37 Parts Catalogue  here .

Variations:

Radiant Yacht Timer, in silver case ref. TUH996PM, or two-tone case ref. YUH999PM. Obviously both with a Seiko 8M37 movement.

Yema America’s Cup, with a Seiko 8M35 movement, white or black dial. More info in the Yema section.

In 1993 Seiko changed the design of their Yacht Timers radically. Again the brand developed a new quartz regatta movement, the caliber 6M37, this time inspired by the old mechanical movements that used the 5-dot countdown system (first used by Aquastar in the 1960’s ).

The first model that was released, is the cal. 6M37-6000.

1995 Seiko introduced the Yacht Timer Sports 200   models, as part of The Great Blue series. Inspired by the older mechanical movements, Seiko developed their quartz movement with the 5-dot countdown system, caliber 6M37-6010.

At Baselworld 2007, Seiko launched a new marine collection, the Velatura. The collection included two new calibers, one of them the Yachting Timer caliber 7T84. Obviously Seiko stepped away from the 5-dot countdown system again.

  • Year: since 2008 upto 2012(?).

With the launch of the Velatura series in 2007, Seiko rose to the challenge to build watches that perform on the open ocean, with a collection characterized by robustness, high functionality and durability. Also in 2007, Seiko was selected as the Watch Partner of the International 49er Class Association.

To mark the fourth year of their partnership, Seiko launced a new model in the Velatura collection, a standard chronograph housing with the caliber 7T62 Alarm movement. Not with a special countdown function, but with a coloured 5-10-15 minutes subdial.

The watch is available with either a stainless steel case with black hard coating and a polyurethane strap (ref. SNAE17) or a stainless steel case with blue hard coating and a stainless steel bracelet with three-fold slasp (ref. SNAE19).

SEIKO Velatura Collection 2007 – Kinetic Direct Drive and Yachting Timer

Since its introduction in 2007, Velatura, the new marine collection by SEIKO has found favor among the world’s sailing and marine community with its distinctive design and its high functionality. The 2007 collection included two new calibers, the Yachting Timer and Kinetic Direct Drive. SEIKO Velatura is a collection of eleven high performance marine watches for men and women, each of which combines innovation of function with refinement in design. The Velatura collection 2007 is comprised of 11 models, with 4 calibers, 2 of which are new and designed expressly for Velatura.

Since the creation in 1965 of its first diving watch, SEIKO has many times accepted the greatest challenge to the watchmaker’s skill – the challenge of building watches that can withstand the demands of ocean life.

In 1975, SEIKO made the first diver’s watch in the world to have a titanium case and to be suited to saturation diving to 600m. Velatura continues a several decade tradition of watches built to take the strain of life on the high sea.

SEIKO Velatura Kinetic Direct Drive

Professional and recreational sailors alike require one thing above all else in their choice of watch: reliability. They have to be able to trust their watch to perform, year in and year out, without fear of it winding down or of battery drain.

SEIKO Velatura Kinetic Direct Drive SRH001P1

For the most demanding watch users on the high seas, Kinetic Direct Drive is the ultimate technology of trust. Wear it and it maintains perfect time. It is recharged by the wearer’s motion, but Kinetic Direct Drive can also be wound by hand.

SEIKO Velatura Kinetic Direct Drive SRH003P1

When winding the crown, the wearer can see the precise amount of energy generated on the Direct Drive indicator. Leave it for a few days and you can wind it to see the power being transmitted to the watch in real time – the perfect re-assurance that the watch is both operational and adequately charged.

SEIKO Velatura Kinetic Direct Drive SRH005P1

Kinetic Direct Drive is an expression of SEIKO’s emotional technology. It is built to allow maximum interaction with the wearer. It takes its energy from its wearer and allows him or her to relate in real time to its functions.

Technical details

Caliber Kinetic Direct Drive, Caliber 5D44 Hour, minute and second hands with calendar Retrograde day-indicator hand Direct Drive indicator hand Power reserve indicator function (fully charged to 1 month) Real-time power indicator function showing the generated power status Hand winding capability

Other features Case: Stainless Steel (SRH001/SRH003) or Stainless Steel + Black IP (SRH005) Band: Stainless Steel (SRH001/SRH003), Stainless Steel + Urethane(SRH005), Clasp: Three fold clasp with push button release Glass: Sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating Water resistance: 10 Bar

Retail price €950-990

SEIKO Velatura Yachting Timer

Sailing a 49er or any other racing yacht is a precision skill in which every wave, every gust of wind and every second is a vital opportunity to gain speed and time. And nowhere is this more important than at the start of a race. The SEIKO Yachting Timer is the instrument the racing sailor needs to hit the mark at the exact second of the start.

SEIKO Velatura Yachting Timer

Designed in consultation with top sailors from around the globe, it has a pre-race timer that sounds at 10, 6 or 5 minutes before the race start.

These intervals are clearly shown on the brightly colored dial and the center hand that counts down the minutes and seconds is large, bright red and legible. After the race start, the chronograph takes over automatically and records the elapsed race time.

Caliber Yachting Timer, Caliber 7T84 Hour and minute hands, small second hand, calendar, Mode selector hand Pre-set countdown timer (10/6/5 minutes) Free-set countdown timer Minute/second timer hand(center) Two hands at 6 o’clock position’s functions Minute/Second timer hand Chronograph hands (hour and minute) Hour/Minute alarm hands (hour and minute) Local time hands (hour and minute) Daily alarm

Introducing the Frederique Constant Yacht Timer Collection

Frederique Constant’s latest releases continue what has become a bit of a tradition for the brand: introducing serious complications into value-driven watches with classic aesthetics that recall the finest Swiss manufactures. They have notably released a truly impressive perpetual calendar , a world timer, and even a tourbillon with eye popping retail prices in styles that make them hard to ignore. Their new Yacht Timer collection — built around the Regatta Countdown and Yacht Timer GMT — includes two new complicated watches with a clear and appealing aesthetic. Let’s take a closer look.

Frederique Constant Yacht Timer GMT and Yacht Timer Regatta Countdown

On the Regatta Countdown from Frederique Constant, each passing minute fills one of five circles in the top half of the dial, first from white to blue, and then from blue to orange. If you’re part of a crew on a racing yacht, you can glance at your wrist while you’re raising or lowering your sails to hold or advance your position and have a pretty good idea of exactly how much time is left before the race officially begins. While this is certainly a niche complication, you don’t need to be a regatta participant to take advantage of a timer like this. Anything that takes 10 minutes or less, or that you want to take 10 minutes or less, can be timed with this complication.

seiko yacht timer review

The other half of the Yacht Timer collection is the new Yacht Timer GMT, which in this iteration is an elegant take on one of the sportiest complications. If the Regatta Countdown calls to mind the excitement and fast action of a sailboat race, the Yacht Timer GMT makes one think of a long distance voyage where tracking multiple time zones might be a necessity. Of course, and this goes without saying, a yacht is not required here either. But Frederique Constant is tapping into an idea of an aesthetic with this small collection, giving their customers a hint of luxury in a package that’s actually quite practical.

seiko yacht timer review

A close examination of the press images provided reveals a few interesting characteristics of these watches beyond the notable complications. First, the dials are incredibly intricate and contribute a great deal to making us believe that we’re looking at the slightly elevated instruments Frederique Constant is selling. The hobnail finish on each of these watches is engrossing and really well done. Secondly, the use of color is fantastic. The shifting circular timing indicators on the Regatta Countdown provide a ton of visual interest and give the watch a touch of casual flair. On the Yacht Timer GMT, particularly the two-tone variant on a bracelet, the red tipped GMT hand, charcoal dial, and rose gold finish all around work really well together.

The Yacht Timer GMT and the Yacht Timer Regatta Countdown are both available now on Frederique Constant’s website in a variety of configurations, mixing dial colors, straps, bracelets, and finishes. Frederique Constant
