The New Versus Tokyo Animalier Watch Collection


by Meehna Goldsmith  

Versus WatchesVersace presented its first Versus line in Milan in 1990. Shepherded by founder Gianni Versace’s sister, Donatella, Versus is the younger sibling of the signature Versace haute couture line. Though at a lower price point, don’t expect to lose any of the sass and trendsetting that the house is famous for.

The Versus collections contain all of the creations found in the signature line, such as clothing, perfume and accessories. No accessories line is complete without watches and Versace applies their characteristic narrative to each of the models within the collection.

Buy Versus Tokyo Animalier Watch CollectionLike the Versus Tokyo, the Versus Tokyo Animalier uses the same base as its canvas. It’s a time-only watch with sweep seconds hands and a dial layout with baton hour indices set off by Arabic numerals at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock. It also keeps the striking inlaid bezel surrounded by a knurled ring. And yet the Versus Tokyo and the Versus Tokyo Animalier are completely different creatures.

Versus Tokyo Animalier watches aren’t inspired by the domesticated cat that sits on your lap and purrs or the dog that tackles you with slobbery kisses when you walk through the door. No, the Tokyo Animalier watches are untamed like a beautiful beast. They possess the unbridled wildness found in plains of the African Sahara. They are intoxicatingly attractive, but beware… They have an edge and dangerous quality to them—and that’s what makes them so alluring.

The Tokyo Animalier watches are relatives to the graceful zebra, the exotic snake and the elegant, feline leopard. And yet they are not copies. Versace never would copy because that wouldn’t only be too obvious, but it wouldn’t have the pizzazz, originality and opulence that a Versace piece demands. The Tokyo Animalier watches are Versace’s interpretations of animals while exhibiting the unique Versace voice. For example, one of the leopard model prints comes in a pink color. All of the watches keep the theme intact with an acetate band matching the animal “skin” of the case, which clasps together with a deployment buckle.

The Tokyo Animalier is not a watch for the wallflower. It’s a bold statement that conveys animalic edge and elegance. It says come close but don’t take anything for granted. It exudes Versace, pure and simple.
