    Pre-Baselworld 2015: Speake Marin Velsheda Red Gold

    Last year at Baselworld, Speake Marin presented a steel version of the Velsheda. This year the brand presents a gleaming new model in a red gold case, retaining its blued hand to indicate time and with its superimposed ‘topping tool’ motifs in the centre of the dial.

    The watch is named after the British “J Class” yacht built in 1933 in Great Britain and which still races today. Velsheda offers a minimalist display of time using a single polished steel, blued hand. The single hand extends across the diameter of the white-lacquered, multi-level dial, its central hub is in the form of the Speake-Marin topping tool logo, as is the central seconds wheel sitting above it.

    The rotation of the seconds wheel on top of the slower moving hub of the hand creates ever-changing patterns, drawing the eye to the centre of Velsheda’s dial.

    The easily legible Roman numerals give the dial a dynamic, contemporary feel, while the sculpted hand is neatly counter balanced by a pointer at one end and an arc at the other. With the fine 5-minute graduations around the peripheral chapter ring, they create the impression of a compass, with inspiration taken from the marine world.

    The nautical feel is enhanced by the Piccadilly case in red gold. With water resistance to 30m, and with a fluted, two-position crown (manual winding and time-setting with hacking seconds), the watch is powered by an automatic Vaucher calibre, offering a 50-hour power reserve and visible through the display-back. The rotor too is in the shape of the Speake-Marin topping tool logo. The watch comes on a hand-made, black natural alligator strap, with a red gold pin buckle in red gold.
