Ladies, if you’re thinking high fashion and high function for the holiday season, consider Versace’s Dylos Icon Christmas Edition, a limited edition of just 50 timepieces available worldwide. Its Christmas-y colors of gold, silver and a gorgeous, clear red are ramped up with the addition of sparkle—as in 31 diamonds—surrounding the dial.
Versace has been known worldwide, since its founding by Gianni Versace in 1978, for its edgy designs and cutting-edge Italian style. In 2004, the Timex Group acquired the license to manufacture and distribute Versace watches, since introducing a broad array of fashionable options for men and women. Designed in accordance with the maison’s world-renowned take on luxury, the timepieces have many of the design codes—like the famed Greek key—associated with the brand. This, combined with Swiss-made innards, results in a reliable and attractive timepiece.
The Dylos Icon Christmas Edition has a 38mm case in stainless steel and IP gold, with a bezel engraved with the Greek key motif. The white dial is partially obscured by a stylized guilloche cover that makes telling the time almost like unwrapping a present. A three-dimensional figure of a Medusa, another of Versace’s recognizable motifs—is at its center. The hours and minutes are indicated by rotating disks powered by a Ronda quartz movement.
The Dylos Icon Christmas Edition comes on a red leather alligator-print strap.
