Versace Mystique watches breathe new life to Baroque
Time and again, we have witnessed how passion and intriguing craftsmanship meet in perfect partnership in watchmaking. Selected expressly for the effortless translation from vision to radiant reality, the art of creating timepieces proves that beauty is indeed a worthy pursuit.
One of the latest beauties that have come to beset us is the recently unveiled Mystique watch collection by Versace. Launched during Baselworld, the Baroque, rich in floral fantasies and historical motif of the Maison, has been updated by Donatella Versace, giving a contemporary twist to original and iconic creations.
What really caught our eyes was the classic beauty of Mystique Small, the most essential yet elegant representation of the collection composed of 4 references in white and black with a guilloché pattern on the dial. Three precious models complete the Mystique Small Collection: a crescendo of diamonds that embraces the case of the stainless steel model as well as an IP rose gold model with diamond-set bracelet and lugs.
And although we’re not naturally fond of floral themes in watches, we’ve found this collection’s Mystique Hibiscus line quite fascinating. It presents a dial decorated with “classic” spirals, gold and silver, with a Hibiscus flower and palm leaves. It is available in 6 different models with a 38 mm stainless steel case, the most precious of which is enriched with a diamond-set bezel.
Another enthralling set comes from Mystique Flora range that recalls the décor of Fall-Winter 2012 fashion shows – stylised and climbing tulips– in yellow and turquoise.
For men, the line is reinterpreted with a more significant case, 43.5 mm with a chronograph movement. The black IP bezel with a tachymeter scale and a leather strap with carbon fibre pattern complete the bold look of the collection. Available in 5 models: from the most sober to the most aggressive, such as the total black model.
