Glam Rock Vintage Glam Watch Collection


by Meehna Goldsmith  

Glam Rock WatchesIn the heyday of Hollywood the likes of Barbara Stanwyck, Clark Gable, Marilyn Monroe, Cary Grant and Lauren Bacall lit up the big screen. Through their manner, speech, poise, and, of course, their clothing and accessories, they defined what it was to be glamorous.

With the Vintage Glam watch collection, Glam Rock hearkens back to a time when glamour was a way of life. It combines the sparkly sophistication of a nostalgic period with the bold and fashion forward edge of the 21st century. It’s a unique fusion of styles that doesn’t necessarily make for an obvious pairing, but Glam Rock pulls it off and evolves into a new and original genre for the modern woman.

Vintage glamour is all about curves and silhouettes and the Vintage Glam collection captures them both. Glam Rock proves that glamour doesn’t have anything to do with size. There is a statement-making piece that comes in a 45 mm case with eye-popping dials — and soft silicon straps because glamour is also characterized by a tactile sense. However, for those women who prefer a smaller case there are 40 mm and 34 mm sizes as well.

There is also a tonneau and oval shaped case, which fits right into the vintage theme when those cases were more predominant. The Vintage Glam collection incorporates signature characteristics that demonstrate the beautiful meshing of the vintage and modern designs, such as the lovely oversized teardrop-style lugs and large onion crown.

Right on trend, Glam Rock offers the three different styles of watchcases composed of stainless steel, stainless steel with IP gold, and a combination of stainless steel and stainless steel with IP gold.

Glam Rock Bal Harbour Watch Collection

Glam Rock Bal Harbour Watch Collection


by Meehna Goldsmith  

Glam Rock WatchesGlam Rock. The name of this watch brand immediately announces its aesthetic, and while it’s a wild ride of different interpretations of two styles that seemingly don’t go together, Glam Rock pulls it off with flair. A combination of a rock-n-roll sensibility with glamorous touches gives these watches a distinct personality. Moreover, Glam Rock’s creativity continually puts a new spin on the concept with new collections to please every woman’s tastes.

The Swiss made Glam Rock Bal Harbour collection pays tribute to the city Bal Harbour, Florida, a place where the beautiful people from around the world congregate for the culture and to express their trend setting style. Bal Harbour watches reflect this eclectic dynamic with artistic dial designs drenched in color to those with a monochromatic look. Furthermore, the dials offer different designs by displaying 3D flower appliqués or embedded diamonds in the dial and the hour indexes. After all, this is a glamorous brand and what better way to exude glamour than with one of the most coveted and sparkling stones to catch the eye.

Usually straps are a utilitarian part of a watch, a uniform closure that incorporates a color to match the color schema to finish off the look. Glam Rock goes a step further by using the band as an integral part of design with details like double chain link bracelets with weaved genuine leather or leather bands with perforations. There’s also a little secret that’s just for the wearer if she wants to share it. On the back of the rounded caseback is a tortoise look application.

All Bal Harbour models illuminate hands and time graphics for convenient viewing when the sun goes down. In addition another characteristic of these Glam Rock watches are colored cabochons or matte epoxy layers in the crowns and pushers.

In a 40 mm stainless steel case, the Bal Harbour watch collection offers in addition to the stainless steel case, stainless steel with an IP gold coating and a two-tone stainless case composed of stainless steel and IP gold—a fashionable trend on the scene.

Since this is Glam Rock we’re talking about, a majority of the dials incorporate diamonds that add a sophisticated wink to its rockin’ style partner. For instance, the Miami GR10521D Python, in a stainless steel case, features a diamond flower on the black dial paired with a genuine python strap for an edgy look that will give any outfit a pop.

The Matelasse GR40418D places diamonds in this pattern on the black dial and gives it a punch by coloring the case in stainless steel and stainless steel IP gold, giving it a hot look. Those fashion forward ladies know that what goes around comes around and the 1980’s two-tone metal combination is du jour again.

The Mix and Match models allow you to be your own designer with this chronograph. The palette of the GR11144 starts out with a black-faced chronograph in a stainless steel IP gold case with a real python bezel. But here’s where you come in to the designing picture to decide on the statement you want to make. Choose from a bevy of colorful leather and python straps to suit your mood.

Versace Leda Watch Collection


by Meehna Goldsmith  

Versace WatchesIf anyone knows that the proper accessories can transform a good outfit into the territory of excellence, it’s Donatella Versace, Creative Director of the eponymous brand her brother Gianni founded and she now leads. The Versace Leda watch collection is imbued with a versatile quality that will bring an extra kick to any outfit.

With the Versace logo right under the 12 o’clock position, the dial exudes chic style with its mother of pearl inlay surrounded by applied Roman numerals. Since it’s more time intensive to apply numerals than stamp them on, this is another detail that exemplifies Versace’s commitment to luxury. Circling the dial are beveled sword hands that give off a nice glint of light at the proper angle.

The Versace Leda collection comes in a nicely sized 38 mm stainless steel case framed by an engraved Greek key bezel that also appears on the crown, one of the signature emblems of the house of Versace. Another sign of the detail and care that goes into a Versace timepiece is that the Leda’s Greek Key bezel is finished with both polished and matte textures.

Within the Leda collection are several different models, and while they are from the same collection, the design elements give them distinct looks. The case comes in stainless steel, IP gold or a combination of both. The two-tone style is very hot this season and is a great look. Dial colors range from gold and white to pink and black, some with sunray finish and others with guilloché.

A watch doesn’t come together unless its fitted with the proper strap and the Leda pairs the designs with just the right tones of black or pink crocodile print leather straps to match the dial, or a two tone or IP rose gold steel bracelet, all with a butterfly buckle.

The Swiss made Versace Leda has the right amount of attitude and sophistication to dress up your wrist this summer—and all year long. Purchase your new Leda watch from an authorized Versace dealer.

Versace Men’s V-Ray Watch Collection


by Adrian Herscovici  

Fueled by Purpose, Steeped in Style

Versace WatchesChronographs prove consistently that they are the jewels of men’s watch complications. The attraction is innate: chronographs categorically represent racing sport, speed and competing against the clock. The ability to successfully style a chronograph watch for the contemporary gent, however, is no easy feat. One collection of watches that does strike the fine balance between elegance and sport with both polish and aplomb is the Versace V-Ray.

The V-Ray leads with an ample 44 mm stainless steel case available in four distinct versions (polished steel, two in rose gold IP and one in gray IP). A prominent aspect of the case is the two-tier lug construction, with the inner tier overlaying the bezel. This case-and-bezel integration adds a subtle but effective visual nuance, much like the way a claw setting is used to emphasize a gem. The bezel, which features a tachymeter scale, is made of stainless steel with versions in black, gray or rose gold IP.

Polished piston-style pushers are another reference to motor racing. The pusher heads are colored to match the chosen accent color of the particular watch, as is the stripe that appears through the center of the crown, which features wide fluting and the Versace Medusa head symbol. The chronograph seconds hand and ring atop the rehaut are also colored to match – a visual effect that neatly ties the case and dial together.

The sophisticated look of the V-Ray case is surpassed only by the cohesive and composed appearance of the dial. The triple-register layout has sub-dials positioned as follows: a perpetual seconds sub-dial at 3 o’clock, a 10-hour chronograph counter at 6 o’clock and a 30-minute counter at 9 ‘clock. The sub-dials are on a background of silver or black (depending on the model) with complementary or contrasting colored indexes. Luminous hands, a date aperture at 4 o’clock and the Versace wordmark round out the elements of the inner dial.

The outer portion of the dial is classic Versace: superbly arranged, with a Greek key pattern in a track around the chapter ring that is fluent in appearance. Applied luminous hour markers divide the track. The aforementioned rehaut is angled gently outward to display the seconds/minutes indexes.

A sporty, padded black leather strap featuring stitching to match the accent color (in red, yellow or blue) complements the other black elements of the watch. The exception is the blue-dial model, which has a rose gold case and employs a blue strap with blue stitching. Every strap employs a fold-over clasp.

At the heart of this chronograph is a precision Ronda 5040D quartz movement with a lengthy 54-month-average battery life. A solid caseback affixed by four screws assists in netting the watch 165 feet of water resistance.

Chronographs urge us to be better and faster. The V-Ray by Versace proves that such energy-fueled motives need not come at the sacrifice of good taste. By combining both of these parts of a man’s personality, V-Ray watches let you explore your high-performance self in style – contact an authorized Versace dealer and choose your favorite V-Ray today.

Versace V-Metal Icon Watch Collection


by Meehna Goldsmith  

Versace WatchesBorn in Italy, Gianni Versace, founder of his eponymous company, took his cues from his mother country. The Italian landscape and centuries of Italian art definitely influenced his sensibilities. After Gianni’s untimely death, his sister Donatella took over as Creative Director. She has never strayed from the roots that made the Versace brand so successful.

The Versace V-Metal Icon watch collection encompasses all of the characteristics and style that define the house and consistently place it in the fashion limelight. While watches usually find their origins with a movement or dial, the V-Metal Icon starts with the strap, updating the look while maintaining all the charm. Based on a vintage strap buckle, it secures to the wrist with a patent leather strap with butterfly buckle ornamented with metal segments.

The Medusa head, a signature of the house of Versace, centers the dial, which is surrounded by a concentric circle of Greek key motifs, another Versace indicator. Classic Roman numerals sit on top of the Greek keys on the rehaut ring, but the real magic happens when telling the time.

Originally inspired by Harry Houdini, the watch is referred to as a mystery watch because the triangular hours and minutes indexes seem to be floating around the dial without being attached to any mechanical system. The trick is that the hands are mounted on rotating crystal glass disks. Framed by a bezel resembling a gourmette, or curb link chain, the Versace V-Metal Icon hearkens back to ancient architecture at the same time it reinterprets it for a fashion forward look.

The 40 mm stainless steel case of the Swiss made V-Metal Icon is just the right size to perch on the wrist and comes in many attractive iterations including silver, gold and two-tone dials on black or white leather straps. There is also the option of gold, silver or two-tone metal segments on the strap.

For a classic yet modern piece that references Italian heritage, the Versace V-Metal Icon is a winner.

Versace Couture Watch Collection


by Meehna Goldsmith  

Versace WatchesThe 2014 Versace couture collections possess a luxurious and sleek styling emblematic of this house’s establishing line of clothing. The Versace Couture watch collection synthesizes beautifully with the dazzling clothes taking the fashion shows by storm and certainly lives up to its namesake.

The colors of the spring and summer 2014 season give a woman a lot of choice to suit her palette from nudes and monochromes to electric colors. The Versace Couture watch collection offers them in the classic Versace package.

The first hint that the Versace Couture watch collection falls into a more classic genre are the applied IP gold Roman numerals set along the outside of the dial matched with IP gold dauphine hands. Adding visual texture, an inner sunken subdial features an engraved iconic Greek key that signifies the brand’s identity. The Versace logo sits comfortably just below the 12 o’clock marker.

Polished with brushed and satin finishes, the 41 mm stainless steel case of the Swiss made Versace Couture collection is not in the usual round, square or even cushion shape. Instead it’s a more playful oval shape anchored by four Versace screws on the bezel that also appear as design elements in the couture collection. Continuing the Versace Greek key theme of the watch, the leather strap, which secures with a Greek key butterfly buckle, is also embroidered with the Greek key.

The Versace Couture watch comes in choice of stainless steel or stainless steel with IP gold case along with different colored dials such as red, black, white and tan with matching straps. Within the crown is fixed a red cabochon, a fine extra detail that Versace is famous for.

The Versace Couture watch collection is conveniently powered by a quartz movement and is water resistant to 99 feet. With one of these on your wrist, you are set to take on the season!

Versace watches may be purchased from an authorized Versace dealer.

Colors of Summer 2014 Women’s Fashion and Watches

Versace Resort 2014 Blue Versace Resort 2014 Yellow Versace Resort 2014 Red

by Meehna Goldsmith  

Fashionistas know that watches aren’t just to tell time. They are a statement of taste and personality, an accessory to dress up an outfit and project an image. Those who keep up with the trends will choose high-style watches to match the season’s hottest runway looks.

Monochrome

Monochrome may have been chic in the 1960’s, but it lost its edge, looking rather retro, until now. Designers have updated the look to become a fashion forward choice by incorporating geometric designs. Marc Jacobs rocked the runway with a patterned ensemble in black and white, while Victoria Beckham showed a color block dress using the same hues.

Both could be nicely paired with the Just Cavalli Trendy R7253178525 stainless steel bracelet watch with off-center black dial embellished with sparkling diamonds or the JOWISSA Roma J2.002.M, a classically configured watch with a white dial contrasted with Roman numerals on the bezel.

Technicolor

At the opposite end of the spectrum, designers played with strong technicolor hues whose heyday also hearkens back to the 1960’s. But in the 21st century, designers have taken striking hues as inspiration, juxtaposing multi-colors into pieces that are sure to turn heads when they make an entrance. Think of them as more intense hues of a rainbow.

Albert Ferretti presented an orange and fuchsia dress that would be perfectly complemented by the orange dialed Versus Logo SP8060014 with diamonds at the quarter hours accompanied by a fuchsia strap, while Prada’s ensemble would benefit from the Versus Tokyo SGM13 0014 orange dialed watch with a multi-colored bezel and contrasting fuchsia and orange straps secured between the lugs.

Metallics

Metallics are a perennial favorite and again they make an appearance on the runways. Versace debuted an evening number that was both sophisticated and sexy with the high cut skirt revealing just the right amount of leg. An appropriate accompaniment to a fancy night-on-the town dress such as this is the Versus Coral Gables SOD010014, a watch that’s got the rock-n-roll soul of the Versace line exemplified by the signature Versus pyramids as a theme on the whole watch from the black faced design to the silver bezel and bracelet.

Designer Nicola Finetti also represented the metallic trend with an outfit featuring cropped metallic pants with a white shirt accented with metallic highlights. For this ensemble, the Ferragamo Gancino Deco FG3050014 will give the outfit a snappy look. The stainless steel case and cream patterned dial synchronize with the metallic in the clothes. Adding just the right hint of luxurious sparkle, the Arabic numerals at the quarter hours are surrounded by diamond baton indexes.

Nudes and Neutrals

If you think nudes are blah, then you better think again. Certainly, the wrong nude color can be disastrous, but if you look to the summer fashion palette, designers have made them dazzling. Yes, dazzling. Don’t believe me, then check out the draping hot number from Ferragamo. There’s no doubt neutral colors can compete with their flashier counterparts. Ferragamo even used the chic tones on their new Ferragamo Buckle FG5030014 watch whose Gancino shape is used to its most cultivated advantage. The stainless steel case encompasses a nude-toned dial, which fits around the wrist with a matching leather strap.

As accessories make the woman, picking the correct watch to complete an ensemble is key.

Versus Aventura Men’s Watch Collection


by Meehna Goldsmith  

Versus WatchesThere’s no question that men are attracted to chronographs. Marking intervals of time, chronographs trace their roots to the early 19th century when Louis Moinet invented the first one to track astronomical objects. Later in the century they found application in timing artillery fire. But the chronograph obtained its modern and sporty reputation for a wider public through car racing and aviation. Now the chronograph is one of the most popular complications.

Versace hits a home run with the Versus Aventura chronograph watch collection. Many chronographs on the market still have a utility look and feel. With the Versus Aventura collection, Versace takes all the function of a chronograph and kicks it up a notch by making it into a fashionable accessory as well, and because this is Versace you know it’s going to be good.

Donatella Versace, the Creative Director and CEO of her family company, describes the Versus line as the rock-n-roll soul of the company. The Versus Aventura collection lives up to its name, turning heads with style that manages to be both edgy and elegant.

The dial features a tri-compax layout of sub-dials with the chronograph controlled by pushers at 2 and 4 o’clock on the case. A prominent Arabic numeral 12 at the top, accompanied by lumed hands, resides over baton hour markers with lumed dots at the tips for visibility. A tachymeter to clock speed circles the flange, and for added convenience, a date indicator sits in the 4 o’clock position. As part of the design the Versus logo is found between 8 and 9 o’clock.

The dial of the Versus Aventura collection is traditional and handsome, but it’s on the case that the rock-n-roll soul comes out. Signature knurled Versus pyramids adorn the bezel of the substantial 44 mm stainless steel case anchored by 6 allen bolts. Protective crown guards on the knurled crown complete the slightly rebellious look. Water resistant to 165 feet, the Versus Aventura collection gets its juice from a quartz movement.

The Versus Aventura collection comes in an assortment of variations including silver, white and black dials with options of stainless steel, black, and IP and gold cases along with leather or bracelet straps.

For the urban gentleman who wants to inject some edge into a traditional complication, the Versus Aventura collection rocks it.

Versace and Versus Watches Have Couture Las Vegas Abuzz

Couture 2014


by Meehna Goldsmith  

Versace WatchesWith Creative Director Donatella Versace as the guide of her eponymous brand, there was sure to be a grand spectacle to showcase new product at the Couture 2014 annual watch and jewelry show held from May 28th-June 2nd in glittery Las Vegas, Nevada at the Wynn hotel. The show started off with a bang, with R&B superstar Janelle Monáe performing an opening night concert. However, based on the reaction of the attendees, the real stars of the show were the new Versace and Versus watch collections.

From its beginnings, Versace has always taken the road less traveled with its progressive and trailblazing style, leading the fashion world in fresh directions. The brand has introduced such disparate areas as rock and roll, theatre, ballet and celebrity into a coherent whole. These signatures are on full display in the Versace Urban Gent men’s and Day Glam women’s watches.

The Versace Urban Gent is a dress watch that certainly lives up to its name. For the sophisticated gentleman, it plays the part with elegance and style that exhibits a man’s fashionable taste. Since this is a Versace timepiece, the Urban Gent offers a twist to the traditional dress watch, giving it both originality and a fashion-forward look.

Versace crafted the Urban Gent in a modern 44 mm stainless steel case with beveled lugs, disrupting the idea that a dress watch has to come in a smaller size to qualify in the category. Details are the specialty of Versace and the Urban Gent abounds with them. The dial features applied Roman numerals (at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock) and bar indicators to mark the hours, with the iconic Medusa head presiding at 12 o’clock. The other iconic hallmark of Versace, the Greek key, appears around a decorative sunken dial, which houses the sunken off-center sub-seconds and date window within. The layering of the dial provides a visually compelling texture and 3-D effect.

Offered with a white, black or blue dial, the Urban Gent comes in a stainless steel, IP rose gold and IP black case and is produced in a limited edition of 500 pieces.

For women, Versace introduced the 38 mm Day Glam. Since women have become increasingly attracted to complications, Versace provided with the popular chronograph done in a way that is inimitably Versace.

Though the chronograph was born as a men’s watch with masculine styling, Versace managed to combine the sporty feel of a chrono in a feminine package. The Day Glam comes in a nicely proportioned 38 mm stainless steel case with faceted lugs that allows room for good dial visibility while taking into account a woman’s wrist size.

The mother-of-pearl dial features golden illuminated skeletonized hands with illuminated golden applied baton markers anchored by the iconic Medusa head, also in gold. In a tri-compax layout, the chronograph times intervals in hours, minutes and seconds and is operated by the two pushers in the case located at 2 and 4 o’clock. There is also a tachymeter scale around the beveled chapter ring of the dial and a date window at 4 o’clock.

The Versace Day Glam is offered in an array of fluorescent colors: turquoise, bronze, candy pink, and black and white with the nice touch of a matching cabochon capping the crown. Cases are available in stainless steel or IP rose gold and wrap around the wrist with matching leather straps. There is also the option of a two-tone metal bracelet with geometric central elements.

Versus Watches

Versace also debuted two exciting watch additions to the Versus line, which is the rock and roll soul of Versace. The Versus Key Biscane and Coconut Grove models take their inspiration from the international style found in South Florida, where fashionistas set the tone.

The Key Biscane is dressed up like a rock and roll star with its edgy looks and daring design. First glance draws attention to the band, which frames the dial. A real working zipper is embedded in the topstitched leather strap. But the embellishments don’t stop there. The hallmark Versus Lion safety pin hangs from the bottom lug in a cut out circle.

Since the strap makes such a strong statement, the dial goes simpler in style so as not to overwhelm the aesthetic. It features dauphine hands and a raised metal chapter ring that hosts four Versus studs for indices at the quarter hours. The Versus logo is placed prominently in the 12 o’clock position.

The Key Biscane comes in a choice of lively dial colors marking the season, such as white, black, orange, fuchsia and lime green that match the band. Depending upon the color, the watch sits in a stainless steel or IP yellow gold case.

As indicated by its name, the Coconut Grove watch is a bit tamer than the Key Biscane but no less fashionable and hip. In Miami-Dade County, Coconut Grove is the oldest modern neighborhood in Miami so you would expect sophistication from a watch named in its honor. The Coconut Grove comes through in spades.

The Coconut Grove’s dial is like a trompe l’oeil painting with its geometric Versus stud pattern that gives a three dimensional effect. Dauphine hands circle round applied golden baton markers. Because of the clever pattern, the eye is continually drawn into the illusion of the shifting dial.

The Coconut Grove case gets a bit saucier by placing studs on the bezel, revealing that rock and roll soul with flair. It comes in a 38 mm round case strapped to the wrist with a linked bracelet featuring the Versus studs. There are several selections in the collection including dials in shades of white, black and gold on stainless steel, IP gold or two-tone bracelets.

There was good reason that customers flocked to the Versace and Versus watch booths. They created a buzz because their designs always foretell the fashion-forward look. But that’s not unusual for Versace.
