Gucci – A beeline for design
The Florentine gem is venturing out of its usual register and taking its watch collection to the next level by offering a very high-end collection of five G-Timeless Tourbillons. The precious mechanism appears on a dial crafted from semi-precious stones in bold colors, such as blue aventurine, tiger eye, bull eye jasper stone or black falcon’s eye. The lucky gold bee, a cherished Gucci symbol, moves in step with the cleverly cadenced rotations of the gemset or polished tourbillon carriage. The dial color palette is complemented by a choice of precious case materials: white gold, yellow gold or platinum, whether polished or gemset with up to 843 diamonds on the case, bracelet and dial. Finally, you can also choose from a selection of brown or black alligator straps or a gold bracelet. And if you prefer a more pared-back look, the new G-Timeless is also available as a simple automatic version in two sizes (36 and 40mm), again with its emblematic bee on a black aventurine background and a diamond-set gold bracelet.
