Watch Sighting: Versace Men's Stainless Steel Watch

I recently got a glimpse of this handsome Versace watch.  It features Roman numerals, a handsome bezel, and the famed Versace Medusa logo.  The watch has a sensibly size 41 millimeter diameter case.


At the heart of this quartz watch, the venerable Ronda 515 movement provides accurate timekeeping.   A date window at 3 o'clock provides a readable date.


I wasn't sure what the logo at 12 o'clock represented.  Initially, I thought that Versace must have had wild hair.  However, the logo actually represents Medusa.  The beautiful woman who offended Athena and was cursed with the snakes for hair, fangs, and who turned men to stone with her looks.  According to the Versace site, the Medusa logo actually represents Medusa pre-snake when she was at the height of her feminine beauty.


It's an interesting bit of trivia about an iconic fashion brand.  Now you can find this and other famed Versace watches on Amazon.
