Gucci G-Timeless Quartz Chronograph

Published by in Gucci on May 5th, 2012 | No Comments »

A nice looking new quartz model from Gucci.  Nothing overly flash, but a good daily wear perhaps.

44mm in size with 100m of water resistance.

The quartz movement in question is an ETA caliber G10 with chronograph complication.

Gucci Latin Grammy Awards

Readers with a keen memory may be thinking: ‘hang on, haven’t we seen this one before, earlier in the year?’

Well, the answer is .. sort of.

Gucci did release a Grammy’s special in February, but this new piece is to commemorate the entirely different ‘Latin Grammys’.

If I was being disingenuous I would say it looks exactly the same as the last one, barring a new strap and the addition of the word ‘Latin’ on the bezel.

But I would never do that of course (*cough*) – I’ll just leave you with the press release instead.

[Press Release] Gucci’s first-ever digital timepiece, the I-GUCCI, is now presented in a larger and bolder version, is an eye-catching option with a cosmopolitan feel. It offers the ultimate in versatility. With a flick, the broad watch face changes from a two-time zone dial in large digits to a streamlined version that features two digital hands revealing local time, including multiple Latin American locations.

Its extra-large, double-layout digital display features a special tag celebrating the Latin GRAMMY partnership. The PVD stainless-steel case is complemented by a wide, black rubber strap featuring a black Guccissima insertion. This special – edition timepiece boasts multiple functions such as chronometer, countdown and other options, making it a perfect tool for a fast-paced lifestyle. The case back also features the Latin GRAMMY Awards special edition label.

The Latin GRAMMY collection also includes a Guccissima leather bracelet in a glamorous black color. The gramophone symbol is etched on the rhodium plated sterling silver clasp along with the Gucci logo completing the overall design. This exclusive collection will appeal to music lovers. These special editions will benefit The Latin Recording Academy and its initiatives to support young and emerging artists on the international music scene and strengthen global awareness of the importance of the culture. The Latin Recording Academy’s educational programs provide students insight into the Latin recording industry, allowing for an open dialogue with musicians and members of the music industry to ultimately better understand the business and how to pursue a successful career.

To celebrate this alliance and preview these special products, Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry will host an exclusive suite at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas. A new section completely dedicated to the Latin GRAMMYs will be integrated into the Music Through Time exhibit that showcases a journey through the history of the Latin GRAMMY Awards, engaging viewers through audio and video. This exhibit will travel to various countries such as United States & Puerto Rico, Mexico, Colombia, Panama and Chile.

In addition, at this year’s 12th Annual Latin GRAMMYs, The Latin Recording Academy will provide a special Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry Award to young emerging Latin artists, which are currently nominated for “Best New Artist” : Pablo Alboran (Spain), Max Capote (Uruguay), Paula Fernandes (Brasil), Il Volo (Italy) and Sie7e (Puerto Rico).

Music has been, and continues to be, a fundamental part of Gucci’s heritage. Over time, Gucci has counted some of the world’s most iconic musicians as fans, including GRAMMY and Latin GRAMMY Award nominees and winners such as Jennifer Lopez, Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas, Mary J. Blige, Marc Anthony, Eric Clapton, Elton John, John Legend, Alicia Keys, Madonna, Rihanna, Ringo Starr, Rod Stewart, Barbra Streisand, Kings of Leon, Florence Welch and Justin Timberlake.

Gucci G-Timeless Diver

A couple of updates from Gucci in the form of the G-Timeless Diver.

44mm’s in size, they’re available in either stainless steel or stainless steel black PVD.  Featuring AR coated sapphire crystal, and water resistance to 100 meters.

Movement is a Swiss quartz Ronda caliber and the MSRP runs from $995 to $1,150.

Gucci G-Timeless Sport

[Press Release] Gucci Timepieces brand launches two extensions to its G-Timeless range of sport, rugged watches with stylish, unisex appeal. Designed by Creative Director Frida Giannini, G-Timeless Sport is available in two extensions to the larger 44mm model in the range.

This new variant heralds the introduction of a very dynamic, sporty timepiece designed to enrich Gucci Timepieces’ offering for men and to strengthen the House’s range of sports watches with a model in the popular Diver style (water resistant to 100 meters). The new G-Timeless Sport is available in stainless steel or black PVD, teamed with a white or black dial and a choice of coordinating straps. The crisp, highly recognizable Gucci green-red-green “web” motif comes in white or black super-resistant nylon, whilst the bracelets in black PVD or stainless steel are crafted with a new, smoother “one link” mechanism.

Each dial is distinguished by the “Gucci SPORT” tag at 12 o’clock, the Gucci diamond pattern in the center and the “G” outline shadow, which sets off the green or red luminescent indexes and dots. The Gucci web motif at 3 o’clock provides a flash of coordinated color whilst essential timekeeping functionality is visible in the date counter at 4 o’clock. The fashionable diver aesthetic is achieved by a rotating bezel with an elevated 20-minute section and a white or black scratch-resistant glaze. The bezel is embellished with two different finishes, including cross knurling and straight fluting around the 20-minute elevation, both of which lend this timepiece its tactile, rugged quality.

Gucci Coupé 90 Years Limited Edition

Published by in Gucci on June 5th, 2011 | No Comments »

To celebrate their 90-year anniversary, Gucci have released the retro-tastic Coupé Limited Edition.

The movement is an ETA automatic (not sure of which reference) with Dubois Depraz modules.

Printed on the dial is the inscription ‘G.Gucci 1921’ and a couple of variants are available; one with a black dial and strap, one with a cream dial with brown strap.

The price for this limited edition will be $2650.

Gucci G-Timeless Collection

[Press Release] Building on the success of its G-Timeless for men, Gucci now offers this model in two ladies’ variations: a chronograph and a three-hand watch.

Designed by Frida Giannini, Artistic Director and a genuine creative asset for the brand, these two new timepieces feature a striking black look enlivened by a sprinkling of emblematic Gucci green and red accents appearing on the strap and dial.

The strict appearance of the black is further softened by the diamond-style guilloché motif on the dial and the embossed pattern on the strap. Connoisseurs will appreciate the signature of all Gucci watches, the filigree G discreetly adorning the dial and the green-red-green stripe.

The result is a youthful and contemporary reinterpretation of the sense of original luxury embodied by the brand.
