Minute by minute with Versace
By Jake Flanagin, December 27th, 2010
The new Versace V-Race wristwatch is the modish, new way to keep time whilst displaying a taste for the fashion world’s paramount house of luxury. The round-face 42 milimeter case is cast in sleek steel, featuring interchangeable lunettes ornamented with the incised and repeated Versace logo, Greek-inspired designs, or a classic minute dial.
The watch face is encased behind a sapphire crystal glass treated with anti-reflective coating for clear visibility of the iconic, Medusa symbol placed in the center of the white dial. There are three hands of quartz model to accent the already decadent, yet refined, timepiece.
A chronograph version with a “retrograde seconds function” is also on the market with a case in IP-coated rose gold and a black dial on which the Medusa and Versace logos are superimposed and clearly visible at 12 o’clock. Both watches are designed by masterful, Swiss watchmakers long known for their national expertise in timepiece design and engineering.
Ultimately, and undeniably, the V-Race is a elegant addition to any wardrobe. Not to mention a considerably more sophisticated way to keep time than constantly digging your BlackBerry out of your pocket.
