Versus Versace Eugène is an amazing and attractive watch. Always pleased to check new comers in this very busy watch market.
It combines the classic shape of a men’s chronograph with the brand’s contemporary character traits.
This model is 50 metres water resistant and it can be submerged in water for periods, so can be easily used for swimming.
I really like the Stainless Steel case and the black colour for the dial.
Please note that there are different colour combinations of the dial and case, together with a range of leather straps or stainless-steel mesh bracelets matching the case, which makes the Versus Eugène a versatile accessory.
Case: IPGun stainless steel – 46 mm Ø
Water Resistance: 50 m/5 ATM
Movement: quartz chronograph
Dial: blue, three counters, date at 4o’clock, logo at 12o’clock
Versus Versace watches are part of the collection from the first ever diffusion line launched by international Italian fashion house Versace. The range was introduced with a strong focus on flair, innovation and unconventional design ideas for those who wanted a more individual look. Versus Versace watches are one of the flagship collections from the line, along with leather accessories and a chic clothing range. The Versus Versace watch collection features bold, strong colours and a sporty appearance, using durable high quality materials and with many pieces offering water resistance of as much as five atmospheres. Each features the Versus logo within a uniquely designed dial, with straps ranging from elegant metallic through classy leather to practical fabric or plastic. For an even more diverse range of designs, check out the other Versace watches available from Watch Shop.
UNDONE, the watch brand democratizing custom luxury timepieces, is excited to release their new, highly-anticipated model, the Basecamp. At StylePilot we couldn’t be more excited to try it on.
In their own words, it is “a modern, high-performance tool watch with on-trend vintage aesthetics, the Basecamp is now the brand’s most durable custom watch in the collection”.
“We’ve been producing top-quality, great looking, customizable watches at UNDONE since 2014” Michael Young, UNDONE Co-Founder. But the Basecamp is really the first of its kind in terms of its utilitarian caliber. We took two years to develop this timepiece and every single detail and complication was considered to make this watch stand out in terms of both form and function.”
So what is so special about the Basecamp watch?
Today, watch crystals are mostly flat. Basecamp’s 3mm crystal is patently arched for a real, retro look. The desired shape took the UNDONE team two years to develop in the lab using LEXAN™, a polycarbonate thermoplastic found in headlamps and motorcycle helmets with 250 times the impact strength of glass.
The connoisseur will notice that one of the most prominent features is the highly-visible orange hour-hand, which is a tribute to one of the founder’s favorite watch brands, Rolex, and their famous Rolex Explorer II. Watch aficionados will also notice the nod to Blancpain’s 50 Fathom ‘sterile’ bezel — the Basecamp featuring that same beloved and uncommon triangle hour pointer.
Exceptionally Legible Unlike most watches, Basecamp boasts three drastically different hands, so the hour, minute, and second are immediately distinguishable. Importantly, the hour hand is the eye-catching hue of vivid orange – striking, and symbolic of safety.
MAKE IT PERSONAL.
With a philosophy that luxury lies in boutique, tailor-made products in small quantities, the Basecamp, like all other models, is made-to-order at UNDONE facilities for each customer. There’s not only a choice between case materials like stainless steel, black PVD, rose gold and gold, but also bezel function types and a personalized display caseback.
Because you can. Staying true to UNDONE philosophy – that individuality matters – Basecamp is yours to customize. Your wrist, your story. Time on your terms.
4 Case Options Basecamp’s 316L stainless steel case comes in four options: silver; gold; rose gold; and matte black. Except the silver case, all the others are thinly vacuum-coated using PVD, for softened shine and heightened hardiness.
3 New Straps While compatible with any 20mm watch bands, Basecamp comes with a new and exclusive NATO strap selection in orange, olive green, and black, in two different coatings. “NATO” is a nickname for the “G10” strap first issued to British soldiers in 1973 – waterproof, fail-safe and easy-to-change.
2 Bezel Choices The choice is between a vintage, understated ‘sterile’ bezel displaying just one lumed pointer to indicate the hour, or the more conventional ‘graduated’ bezel for accurate minute-by-minute measurement (available in May 2019).
Tool watches should be light and compact, and in no way clumsy or cumbersome – they are designed to fuse effortlessly with an explorer’s physique, so they never have to be taken off during a journey. Weighing in at just 66 grams, Basecamp ticks all the boxes (and scales).
Perfect for everyday wear, indoors or outdoors, office, off-site… Sans crown guards, Basecamp has slimmed down to smarten up for all sorts of occasions. At 40mm in diameter and 15mm thick, Basecamp sits snugly on any wrist. Lug-to-lug length is 48mm and lug width is 20mm, allowing easy exchange with all UNDONE 20mm straps.
Basecamp is driven by one of the most reliable and robust workhorse in the industry – the Seiko Instrument Inc. NH35a automatic movement. The Japanese are known for precision and efficiency. The watch fuels up by wrist motion, but can also be wound manually via the crown; fully wound, it’s armed with a 42-hour power reserve.
