In Milan in 1978, when the first collection of Gianni Versace Donna debuted, a star was born. The Versace fashion house quickly became a symbol of Italian luxury and fashion worldwide. The 80s were a time for expanding one's horizons, flanking clothing with the design and production of sophisticated accessories. In 1989 the first watch collection was launched, Atelier.
In 2004, Timex Group acquired the license to manufacture and distribute Versace watches, creating the Vertime company. Versace's watch collections are designed in accordance with the Maison's intrinsic style and characterized by the iconic Versace logo. The combination of Swiss technology with distinctive Italian style, Versace timepieces are the embodiment of international glamour – sophisticated, elegant and refined.
