The Medusa Infinite timepieces launched by Versace for Fall/Winter 2022-2023 introduce a new evolution of the mythological figure adopted by the Maison as the symbol of a sensual and daring femininity that is also emancipated and impenitent.
Once again, the undisputed protagonist of a line of women’s watches, the three-dimensional Medusa is back, floating between two sapphire crystals that enclose the dial (an innovation launched last season). But the idea has been taken a step further and the entire dial is now three-dimensional, built on two overlaid levels.
A radial pattern terminating in a Greca motif is cut out of the upper dial, which reprises the colors of Versace’s clothing and accessories this season (blue, black, red and green, as well as the classic white-silver), to reveal the base dial underneath (IP champagne or IP black steel).
The radiance of sun yellow or emerald, green, the depth of light blue, the warmth of pink or the timeless resolution of black, the protagonist in this play of contrasts: the Icon Active chronograph is richly contaminated by the colour palette of Versace’s latest ready-to-wear collections.
The new colours, also appearing in an innovative mix and match rainbow style on both the dial and strap, are the main novelty of these new timepieces, extending the best-selling line for people who love trendsetting accessories that get noticed but can also be adapted for different looks and situations.
The Icon Active retains the main characteristics of the family of watches that last spring launched the first chronograph with a transparent polycarbonate case enclosed in a cage with four screws. The model still has the 3D Medusa head at 12 o’clock and the Versace logo, repeated in larger characters on the top ring at 6 and 12 o’clock. Not to mention the other distinctive feature of Icon Active watches: the La Greca motif on the metal strap loop and inside the case on the curvature of the dial’s inner ring.
