Donatella Versace took a break Saturday from her Versus show prep to unveil the latest DV One watches above the rooftops of Milan at the Terrazza Martini. The DV One Cruise group, produced by Timex, features a limited edition that draws inspiration from the vivid color scheme of her fall ready-to-wear collection. The sporty chic timepiece has blue and purple silicone straps, a red face and black bezel. There are two versions, one with a simple black bezel (99 will be produced) and one adorned with 18-karat gold, sapphires and a smattering of rubies — only three exist, one of which is adorning Versace’s wrist at the moment. The limited editions will be available starting in October. In November, six more bold oversize styles will hit stores. Highlights of that edition — which is not limited — are the pink, yellow and turquoise watches with pavé topaz stone bezels and coordinating alligator straps.
