Versace MYSTIQUE SPORT Watch
Versace has launched its Mystique Sport watches. A combination of power and dynamism, Mystique Sport is a functional, high performance chronograph with an unmistakably masculine appeal. Made entirely from steel, the more aggressive version prefers a two-tone metal look: the IP rose gold treatment draws attention to the bezel, the crown, the buttons, the display details and the bracelet’s centre links. The Mystique Sport is available at Paris Gallery and Watch Gallery.
The watch natural penchant for sport is highlighted by its usual technical features: the extra-large but perfectly ergonomic case; water resistance to 50 meters; the black guilloché dial with hands and indices that can also be read in the dark; and a top ring with tachometric scale for speed calculation. The ultra-reliable Swiss Made quartz movement measures event duration to tenth of a second precision.
Versace VANITAS watches
Sumptuous and seductive, Vanitas is quintessential Versace style; a truly iconic product that never goes unnoticed. The impeccable expression of Versace’s glamour and luxury, the Vanitas watches collection is part of the brand’s accessories line and draws inspiration from its decorative elements: the matelassé effect Baroque pattern and the Medusa head appear on the dial, the Greek key is engraved on the bezel, and the entire strap is spangled with another of the Maison’s iconic details, a plethora of studs that illuminate it like myriad points of light. Versace Vanitas is available at Paris Gallery and Watch Gallery.
For next spring-summer, Vanitas extends the colour palette to lime yellow, turquoise and purple. These colours, seen in the prêt-à-porter Versace collection, are reinterpreted in more vivid plain shades and transformed into vibrant monochrome colours with the of use exclusively glossy materials: IP rose gold for the case, enamel for the dial and bezel, and patent leather for the strap. A second, larger strap supplied with the watch reprises the quilted Baroque pattern.
Versace VANITY watches
A successful watch that has become nothing less than a cult object, Vanity appears in new gold, pink and orange colours. These vitamin-and energy-packed fashion colours perfectly convey the iconic spirit that animates the collection. Vanity is a distillation of pure Versace’s style and includes all its hallmark symbols: the Greek key is engraved on the dial next to the logo at 12 o’clock, and the entire bezel is strewn with studs, which also appear on several indices. The strap is decorated with other larger studs featuring the Medusa head. Versace Vanity is available at Paris Gallery and Watch Gallery.
The gold version has an IP rose gold case, a sunray effect dial and a coordinated crocodile print strap: the overall gleaming effect amplifies the power transmitted by the watch and makes it even more eye-catching than ever.
The new versions of Vanity also reflect the chic & glam aspect of Versace-style femininity.
Versace V-RACE GMT ALARM
Designed for business travellers who want a functional watch without losing style, the V Race GMT Alarm is both a useful instrument and full of class. The V-Race is available at Paris Gallery and Watch Gallery.
In its 2014 version, it appears in the hottest horological colour of the moment: blue. The navy blue interpretation is the dominant monochromatic feature of the sunray effect dial and alligator print strap. Set alongside the grey IP steel case, it creates a sophisticated and up-to-date colour contrast. The Versace logo repeated on the bezel is a clear mark of distinction that ensures the watch stands out from the crowd.
The high-precision quartz movement meets the quality requirements imposed by the Swiss Made label. The second time zone is indicated by the red arrow hand on the 24 hrs. scale on the flange and can be adjusted using the button at 2 o’clock. The alarm time, on the other hand, is indicated by the blue arrow hand and is set using the button at 4 o’clock. The date window and small seconds counter emphasize the watch’s technical feel.
V-Race GMT Alarm is also available in a new two-colour version, with a steel/IP yellow gold case and bracelet and a black dial, giving it a classic and distinctly masculine look.
