When you think Versace, the first adjectives that pop into your head will not likely include “reserved,” or “quiet.” Even so, with their new throwback collection of V-Circle Tribute Edition timepieces, Versace re-ups on their larger-than-life aesthetic with an elegant, streamlined design dominated by fierce baroque stylings.
This Tribute Edition watch is taken from Versace’s established V-Circle collection, which is one of the designers more classic and timeless offerings, and combined with one of the brand’s most elusive prints. The face of this collection hearkens back to the simplistic V-Circle design, with Greek keys, a Medusa head at the 12 o’clock marker and a subtle, intertwined”V” pattern. This luxurious, but toned-down dial is sharply contrasted with Versace’s “wild baroque” print featured on the strap, which debuted in the designer’s SS/1992 collection. Classic French imagery floats above a bold animal print for a head-turning timepiece that will outshine most, if not all of its peers on sheer visibility alone.
There are two models in this collection, one in black and one in white, with corresponding print on the calf leather straps. The Versace V-Circle Tribute Edition watches operate on a Swiss-made quartz mechanism and feature either silver or IP yellow gold cases that measure at 38mm. If you plan on taking this piece into the water, you can rest assured that it’s water resistant up to 50 meters.
