Veloci All White Party at The Palace Pool Club Manila.

Italian-inspired watch brand Veloci made a splash as it launched its newest watches with an all-white pool party and fashion show at The Palace Pool Club in Bonifacio Global City. 

I'm happy that both T and his sister Michelle were available that day and could join me in the event as well.

The party was in full swing when we arrived, with DJ Nina Saputil on deck.

Not long after, the fashion show started.  Top models Hideo Muraoka and Catriona Gray, chosen to represent the brand, were among the first ones to show off their Veloci watches.  

Hideo Muraoka is an avid sportsman who's into soccer, Crossfit, and Muay Thai.  He cites his Voyager and Pulse pieces as his go-to watches and has lots of them because the watches can match any outfit, from the gym to casual days to parties like this.  On the other hand, Catriona is a formally trained singer who likes to write about her travel adventures on her blog.  According to her, she's hauled Veloci watches all over Asia and they've never let her down. 

After the fashion show, volunteers were made to do dares and got to keep Veloci watches for their participation.   Suddenly, the host announced that there were Veloci watches under the pool and whoever finds them could keep them (yes, all of the timepieces can be submerged in water!).  Too bad we weren't in our swimsuits ;)

Here is what's new with the three Veloci watch collections:

For fans of laid-back and low-key statement pieces, the latest CRUISE collection comes in different punches of color, with integrated silicone straps.  Colors available for the collection are red, blue, black, and pink for the stainless steel version; black for gold PVD version; and black and blue for rose gold PVD version.

Widely popular with seafarers and other marine enthusiasts, VOYAGER watches have 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.  

For active people, the PULSE collection has dual time display, stopwatch and alarm, an illuminator, and a fuss-free rubber strap.  New models come in combinations of black and blue, black and red, all black, and white and gray.

It was so hard to decide which watch to pick.  I like bringing Veloci timepieces when I travel because like Catriona, they have never let me down.  I even wore one during Pope Francis' visit to the Philippines (read my blog post about Papal Visit 2015) while it was raining like crazy!

We finally decided on VOYAGER watches with the bigger 44m faces.  Michelle got the black on rose gold PVD while I got the black on gold PVD.  

OOTD time!
