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.


Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.

  1. I got the chance to handle the prototypes of this product line – they’ve got a quality build and an edgy design. Can’t wait for the release.
