Watches aren’t just good for timekeeping. They’re also one of the most celebrated fashion accessories. If you care about telling time and being fashionable, you’re probably familiar with Gucci. Created in Florence, Italy in 1906, the House of Gucci has been one of the most recognizable brands in both the fashion and the watch industry for decades.
What started out as a brand for clothing and leather goods eventually branched out into making bags, equestrian equipment, and of course, watches. Gucci watches offer exquisite design, high quality and a unique type of innovation. Let’s explore what makes Gucci watches some of the most exquisite timepieces in the world.
Gucci watches are built with gold or stainless steel cases and reliable Swiss movements. Some models offer water resistance of up to 300 meters, which is considered a remarkable feat among designer watches. Most of their watches feature sapphire crystals that give them an air of elegance and durability. When wearing a Gucci watch, you can be sure it has been built to last.
Movements and Dials
What makes every watch tick is its movement. As a luxury fashion brand, Gucci watches are unique in their wide range of offerings; many of their timepieces are available in quartz or automatic variants. For the quartz models, Gucci uses Swiss quartz movements, which offer super-precise accuracy and require minimal maintenance. At Feldmar, we find a lot of Gucci watch fans are drawn to the reliability and ease of use that quartz movements offer. Battery changes are easy, fast, and affordable and in models like the Gucci Grip, the signature tick-tick motion of the second hand is less noticeable thanks to the unique dial layout.
To that end, Gucci watches are famous for dial designs that push the envelope of watch styling. While the majority of Gucci watches are traditional three-hand analog design, they do offer a surprising number of models with digital displays as well.
Gucci is mainly known for its innovations in watch design, particularly aesthetics, as this has always been where the brand excels. If you’re looking for a watchmaker with style, you’ll never go wrong with Gucci. From the bracelet to the bezel, no detail is overlooked when Gucci reimagines a watch. Even Gucci’s famous bumblebee motif has clever ways of popping up in watch design. Finally, Gucci watches offer a wide array of materials, using stainless steel, gold, and physical vapor deposition (PVD) in the construction of some of their watch cases.
When it comes to manufacturing stylish watches, Gucci is legendary. They offer nearly 200 different models with a majority of those designed for women. All of their watches are timeless, elegant and a true masterpiece in watch design. Many of them have been worn by celebrities, artists and historical figures all over the world.
Gucci has certainly earned their place among other luxury watch brands with their high quality and stylish timepieces. Shop Gucci watches at Feldmar Watch Company.
