Just ahead of its centenary celebrations proper, Gucci unveils its high watchmaking collection. While it is not the first time that Gucci has dipped its fingers into the pinnacle of bijoux — the storied fashion house launched its debut high jewellery collection in 2019 — it is the brand’s first foray into the world of haute watchmaking.
Among the new creations, which comprise of four different lines including the G-Timeless and Grip, the Gucci 25H is the piece that stands out with precision and opulence, made for both men and women. Italian style meets Swiss expertise, the new model plays with sleek, sporty lines, creating an ultra-slim design at just 3.7mm in height, a new record in the House’s watch history.
Inside the “second-skin” case is the new GG727.25 watch calibre, Gucci’s first movement developed and produced by the Kering movement manufacture in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. Taking cues from creative director Alessandro Michele’s favourite number 25, a regular in his Gucci collections, the Gucci 25H, a microcosm of Michele’s belief, is presented in steel and pavé-set models and two tourbillon iterations in platinum and yellow gold.
