Virata watches rev in from the heartland
Virata watches, created by an engineer named Patrick in Canton, Ohio, are styled after the race cars he loves. Designed to look as aerodynamic as a Formula 1 bruiser or a modern muscle car, Patrick is hoping his automatic pieces strike a chord for the modern watch lover.
The pieces themselves have complex cases and a solid Miyoa 9015 automatic movement. He’s launching on May 1 of this year and we’ll have a review unit on the site soon. I’m most fascinated by Patrick’s tale of watch-loving turned watchmaking. He decided to create his own brand after a few years of fanatic collecting and it’s a bold and clever take on the traditional three-hander. More to come.
