A "grail" as it is used here on WUS is generally a watch that a person has long desired, but is extremely difficult to obtain, due to rarity, cost, etc.--it is, by this definition, something that only makes sense to a specific individual and what the individual would really really like to have, if it were possible--so the questions is, is it a "grail" (to you)? Other people can't tell you what your grail is, or even whether is is "worthy" enough to be considered a grail--it all comes down to the individual, and thankfully, we are all different.

Google “Versace watch” and all that comes up are retail sellers and eBay...in other words, no reviews by watch publications or websites.....maybe because the watches are not on the radar of the watch world and collectors.

It can be to someone. But the honest answer is that it is not a typical example of something people here refer to as a grail watch.

Mostly because the brand is seen as a "fashion-brand" rather than a watch-brand. It is not like brands that are big names in modern fashion can't make good watches. Some are well respected and make great watches (Cartier). But when watch nerds refer to something as a "fashion-brand" they typically refer to brands who add their logo to cheaply made watches without any 'horological value'. Usually they sell for more than they'd be worth based on the materials, level of finishing, movement and overall quality of the watch.

That said, there are those who focus on just the look of a watch and the average consumer does appreciate a lot of the brands that people on a watch forum would typically avoid. Which is why it could totally be a grail to someone. It is just unlikely to be someone's grail on a dedicated watch forum.

Generally speaking, that is not and would not ever be a grail watch.

Generally speaking, the two most prominent aspects of a grail watch is that it is manufactured by a respected watch company and, for most people, would be prohibitively expensive or at least a very very big financial stretch watch.
