Calvin Jr Watches recently sent prototypes of the Velocita watch that was just funded on Kickstarter with 12 hours to go. The first thing you will notice about Calvin Jr. Velocita is that its not like anything else on the market. While lots of Kickstarter projects use off the shelf cases, Calvin Jr. Velocita is a one of kind watch.









Calvin Jr. Velocita offers a bold design with case and dial purposely positioned at a 30 degree upper angle at the 12 hour position for an ergonomically time reading. The curve case wraps around your wrist and it’s 22mm thickness works without looking too big. The crocodile embossed leather strap adds another touch of class to the watch. The case is 42mm and has excellent wrist presence. The chronograph watch has the crown on top of the watch with pushers to the side of it. The CJR logo(also featured on the end of the second hand) is on the dial with Calvin Jr. printed below it. Then below that you will find Velocita and “1/5 Sec. Chrono. The watch features a deployment clasp that perfectly compliments the watch.


The Velocita comes with 6 watch designs based on architecture and motorcycles chassis. The flagship watch will feature an ETA 775 automatic and with the other watches featuring Ronda 3520.D quartz movement. The six watches include the automatic C3PO-1, Carbon, and quartz Fire Red, USO, Army, and Spacecraft.



The Kickstarter projects that catch my eye are ones that are innovative with their design and offer real value. Calvin Jr. Velocita checks all the marks that I want in a bold new watch in a market with so many copycats. Calvin Jr. Velocita is an affordable watch with bold designs cues and features that matter to watch enthusiasts.
