This is the first Versace
watch that would be suitable as a daily wear for me. The design theme is somewhere between the Chanel J12 and the Hermes Clipper line. The black colored watch is mostly steel (possibly some titanium), with a case design that has enough character to make it unique - even though it has a familiar presence. The thick polished bezel with is tachymetre scale is well done, and almost looks like it should be a rotating timer bezel, though it is not. The black on black dial is contrasted with some polished steel to help it be readable, but the look is strong and serious - something Versace isn't always known for. Interestingly enough, the Medusa head is absent from this men's timepiece from Versace who typically always places it somewhere on their watches. Then again, I haven't seen the case-back of this model.
Versace insists that the DV One watch is more than just show. The sporty chronograph watch has a Chronometer certified (COSC) automatic movement inside, with a solid design and character. Precious few details on this timepiece exist, but it is part of an overall larger line of more serious luxury watches from Versace that will arrive soon later this year. Price is sure to be $5000 plus.
