History of Versace Watches
Even if you are not really keeping up with the fashion world, you may know about the top fashion brand Versace. Every year you can see its newest collections in major international fashion shows and also their presence spotted on countless Hollywood celebrities and sports stars. Because of such huge fame on luxury apparel, you may have missed their designer watches that are worth your attention. Now let’s take a closer look at how the well-esteemed brand developed and produced their watches.
The brand was initially established under the name of its founder, Gianni Versace in 1978 in Milan Italy. Gianni Versace was a young and independent designer working with a few Milanese fashion brands including Callaghan, Genny and Complice. After the initial success of his first collections, he opened his own business in Milan’s Via Della Spiga and started to make his own apparels from designing to retailing.
For almost 20 years, the company had grown constantly and smoothly occupied a main seat in the high fashion market. However, it then suffered a serious setback when the founder Gianni Versace was murdered in 1997. After his death, his sister Donatella and brother Santo took over the company and continued the success and will of Gianni Versace.
Donatella Versace and Santo Versace didn’t only manage to survive but also further took it to a whole new level. With Donstella’s splendid leadership and deep bonds with top celebrities such as Madonna or Jennifer Lopez, the brand has gained a worldwide reputation and became a favorite amongst high society.
Grounded with such solid success and status, Versace began to diversify its business and enlarge its market share. One of its most significant moves was the creation of the Versace watch. In 1998, the brand introduced its first series of timepieces.
If we compare Versace to other older luxury brands or well-known watchmaking brands, such as Bulguri, Tissot or Cartier, the legacy and history of Versace watches is definetely pretty short. But the brand actually houses a number of impressive watches which are not just mere timekeeping toola but appealing accessories to reveal the wearer’s personality and attractiveness.
The release of the first Versace watch has turned out to be a massive success in no time in the world market. Stylish, daring and at the same time high in quality, the Versace watches are considered as a must-have accessory for fashion lovers who are also seeking for a practical watch.
Popular Versace Watches
Up to date, Versace has already expanded its wristwatch business into a versatile house that is holding a wide array of timepieces. Carrying the brand core style and daring look, each watch collection is presented with its own purpose and uniqueness. Currently, there are over a dozen collections with different styles that you can choose from. Let’s explore some of the most popular models!
The word “Khai” usually refers to “majesty” and “greatness” in several cultures. So we could expect the watches under the name should be more premium and crafted with similar scale as implied. These Versace Khai watches are now available in mainly 6 different versions such as a silver version, a black dial, IP gold plated version, two-tone dials, etc.. To fit well with the name, there is a premium model which features an eye-catching bezel engraved with 66 sparkling jewels.

Exclusively created for the ladies, this collection consists of all feminine elements that the brand can get. Elegant and timeless, the Versace Vanity timepieces are all crafted with the brand’s most exquisite craftsmanship, making them a great pick for both formal and casual.
It is often said that if you want to see whether the watch of a brand is really worth owning, you should check out their sports watches. In this way, Versace V-Ray is one of the Versace’s best sports watches that you should take a deeper look at. These Versace V-Ray watches for men are designed in a celebration of sportsmanship, while specializing in chronograph watches.

On the occasion where you need to travel frequently and meet many people, this is a popular choice that will for sure turn heads.
Versace Mystique Sport
While both V-Ray watches and Mystique Sport watches are presenting masculine sporty chronographs, the V-Ray’s design is more general and the Versace Mystique Sport watch is designed based on inspiration from motorsports. The sub-dials with totalizers are crafted in a metal-edged tone that resembles the panels in motor racing cars.
Versace Leda is relatively a newer member of the ever-growing Versace watch family. Similar to Versace Vanity, Leda is another Versace watch model for women. Compared to Vanity, the Versace Leda watch is more of a minimalistic type while featuring well-crafted details that reveal the sophistication of the Versace femininity.
