With a dreamlike, horological spaceflight into the Gucci universe, the House enters into its next High Watchmaking endeavor.
Channelling the golden age of space travel and a passion for discovery, Gucci High Watchmaking presents five signature collections of exceptional timepieces that map and trace time. Featuring tourbillons, moonphase movements, and exceptional stones, the watches fuse expertise and excellence with iconic codes of the House and avant-garde artistry.
The GUCCI 25H collection includes three Skeleton Tourbillon timepieces with a flying tourbillon at six o’clock which rotates every minute, and will perfectly align with the bridge once during its journey.
Two designs are masterfully set with baguette diamonds, while the third design features colored bridges and matching rubber straps, which takes inspiration from the rich hues represented in the geological map of the moon.
The 9.7mm GUCCI 25H with the perpetual calendar complication powered by the GG727.25.PC caliber, which displays the days, months, years, and moonphases up to the year 2100 without adjustment.
The G-Timeless Planetarium line consists of four new kaleidoscopic designs. Centered around the Dancing Hours Flying Tourbillon, GGC.1976.DS, the tourbillon is named after the Orion Nebula NGC 1976, one of the galaxy’s brightest nebulas.
Each of the four creations is unique thanks to a combination of twelve precious gemstones on the dial including Ethiopian opals, a pastel mélange of multicolored stones, a sunset of contrasting reds, and finally four different types of stars covered in diamonds.
A start-and-stop function on the crown activates a rotation of the twelve exquisite stones.
The G-Timeless Dancing Bees collection celebrates the bee motif, a signature symbol of the House.
Twelve 18k gold bees define the front of the dial, hypnotically fluttering and shimmering with the slightest movement of the wrist.
Two new stone dials pay tribute to the beauty of the natural world and galaxies. The first features an intense turquoise dial with a bee at the center of the tourbillon, recalling the green and blue of the oceans as seen from space. With a star-studded tourbillon and diamond-set crescent, the second design captures lush, verdant lands with a pistachio green opal dial that exemplifies Gucci's exquisite stone marquetry savoir-faire.
The G-Timeless Moonlight with the sophisticated caliber GGV838.MP looks to the planets to evoke the mystery and magic of our universe.
A made-to-order design allows for personal expression with bespoke detailing. Place, time and date of birth are depicted on the watch through six gemstones that reflect the astral map on a rotating rehaut and an oscillating weight displaying the personal constellation.
Crafted with a layered dial technique, two designs are differentiated by deep tones that reflect the dialogue between the planets in our galaxy, from an electric purple shimmering mother-of-pearl dial to an iridescent green aventurine glass.
The Grip collection combines 1970s skateboarding culture with a unique and sleek design.
A jumping hour mechanism adds an off-beat touch to the design, inviting time to be read in an unusual way.
As part of the latest collection, two new styles are introduced with a retro feel in brick red jasper or chrysoprase stone and set in 18k rose gold with matching display discs and complimentary alligator straps.
The High Watchmaking collection can be discovered by appointment at Gucci’s first dedicated boutique at Place Vendôme, Paris.
