Gucci : Stepping up the equestrian pace

Gucci’s emblematic signature since the 1950s, the horsebit adorns shoes, acccessories, jewelry, and now ladies’ timepieces. The Horsebit watch collection launched in 2014 currently comprises two models that differ not only in terms of their size (28 and 34 mm), but also their design. Fitted with a rigid  bracelet secured by separate lugs at 6 and 12 o’clock, the smaller variation looks every inch a piece of jewelry, clearly echoing the eponymous jewelry collection which itself welcomes an exquisitely dainty silver line. The latter combines the shape of the horsebit with another distinctive Gucci motif named Diamantissima. Inspired by the Diamante canvas fabric design created in the 1930s, it is composed of a crisscross pattern appearing to form a succession of diamonds. Gucci reinterprets it in an openworked style to give depth and intensity to the Horsebit Light pendant necklaces, bracelet and earrings.
