The fashion chameleon's best friend: Veloci Watch

Hey folks! Can I just say that I'm super touched by all the entries I got on the Project Vanity event. I spotted some old readers there, and even new ones who managed to read the 1,700+ posts in only a few weeks! I'm overwhelmed (in a good way) and very happy to know how this blog has helped you even in small ways like trying out a new look. <3 Makes me even more psyched for the event! 

Anyways, today I want to review the Veloci Watch (P2,750) that I got a couple of months ago. It's an Italian-inspired (but made in Japan) watch that comes with three different Asprey straps in one kit. Really cool if you like changing your watch per outfit.

Veloci is a great everyday watch for me since the straps are tough, washable, and super light. The watch face itself is a little bigger than I'm used to but that's the look, I suppose! The silver and pink face can be easily matched with most of my girly outfits. Oh and of course, I can buy a new strap whenever I feel like it.

The straps that come with the watch are actually from Asprey and can be purchased separately for P350. It comes in lots of other colors and prints, I think, so you can play around with any look you can think of.

Just a heads up, these straps are rather long so if you have skinny writsts (like mine. Just about the only skinny thing on my body lol!) you will sort of have to loop it backwards. It's not a hassle nor does it look odd, but you should ask the store to cut the strap for you if it's way too long.

So cute! I like the white strap best compared to the pink and stripes. I want a sort of lime green or a mustard yellow next time. There's actually an L Time Studio stall in Market Market so I plan to purchase there. :D

There you go. :) To know more about VELOCI watches you can check them out in various ASPREY stores, selected LTIMESTUDIO boutiques, and TIME GEAR boutiques. You can also follow for more updates.

Yaaay. It is so cute. I agree, you should buy a lime green colored strap. I love the design of the watch because you can easily find an outfit to match the watch.

I love watches! I never go out the house without one on, I feel naked without a watch. This one seems reasonably priced, and it looks sturdy. I'm just concerned that it's probably not waterproof (or at least, the straps aren't). After wearing a waterproof watch for a decade or more, I would probably mindlessly forget that the current watch I'm wearing isn't waterproof and end up destroying it!

So cute! I've been wanting to get this since I saw it on Zalora but I'm worried that it might look too.... casual, for lack of a better term. Maybe I'll think it over! Hihi. I really love that leather skirt! Is that the same thrifted one from your previous post? It's so contemporary in such a good way. Thanks for this review Ms. Liz!

ang kyoot ng outfit, i would have preferred kung hindi siya parang tela un strap kasi dumihin, i dont have the patience to wash it heheh, pero good buy nga siya youre getting multiple looks in one

Mas gusto ko yung mga plastic/rubber bracelets na may design or metal bracelets pero I like the face of the Veloci watch.

This watch has been on my to-buy list for so long nowwww. Ahhh, I really love the idea of interchangeable straps! It's nothing new, I know. It just that it justifies buying a watch that you can style differently every time you use it. If I were to finally buy one, I'd probably choose a neutral watch face and then go crazy with the straps. :)

Its so cute and girly! I love the colors and its really cool that you can change the straps. Pero parang dumihin nga lang yung straps but it really look good. :)

So cute. And it looks luxury too! I love the fact that you can change the straps. I'm not one into watches but this will be the one I'll be buying next time.

The detachable straps is so convenient so you don't have to buy a new watch if you wanted a different color to match your outfit. I like the black and pink stripes. :D And big watch face is a must a have for me since I'm nearsighted.

wow! i love the color of the straps! *searching for nearest store* Honestly, I fell in love with your watch! =)

Cute! I love how pink and girly yours is! Nice to know it's affordable.

March 1, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJanine

This is a good buy! The watch itself looks sturdy enough and it's affordable too. :)

That pink watch looks so girly. unfortunately I'm not a big faced watch person because my wrist are skinny. :(

Veloci!! I've been lusting over this watch ever since I've seen it on Asprey's fb page. I like the red or silver or navy blue 'cause they all seem so versatile. Plus points when you mentioned that it's made in Japan.

i love PINKS.. yes it makes me feel girly and cute (ehem) i find this watch interesting because you can change straps depending on your outfit and occasions =)

Cute. I'd wear something like that on a regular day. But I'm still more of a plastic strap kind of girl. I wash my hands frequently, so maluluma lang agad ang ganong strap sa akin. :(
