Fashion powerhouse Gucci has has a long & well-respected association as an 'accessible' brand of fashion watches - in fact, in 1972, it was one of the first houses to venture into watchmaking!
On the centenary of its foundation, Gucci is stepping up their offer when it comes to fine watchmaking, offering its first every in house calibres - designed by creative director Alessandro Michele, the new pieces feature sophisticated mechanical movements, including their own proprietary calibre.
Let's take a closer look at the Gucci 25H Collection.
The Gucci 25H collection is named after one of Alessandro’s Michele favourite numbers. The model is the Creative Director’s take on one of the most successful categories today – the luxury sports watch with an integrated bracelet. As such, it is envisaged by the Florentine brand as a future pillar of its watch collection with new iterations to be expected.
The Gucci 25H is inspired by modern architecture and expressed by the continuous rhythm of the horizontal satin-brushed lines traversing the watch dial and the signature Interlocking G logo. 40mm in diameter (at least for now), the cushion-shaped case features a flat bezel, a three-layer profile and a hidden crown. It is extended by a five-link integrated bracelet closed by a butterfly folding clasp.
Importantly, the Gucci 25H is equipped with the brand’s first proprietary movements.
The micro-rotor calibre GUCCI GG727.25 family has been developed and is manufactured in the Kering watch manufacture in La Chaux-de-Fonds, alongside products from sister companies Ulysse Nardin and Girard-Perregaux. It is available in two versions with a ‘traditional’ regulator (with a variable inertia balance wheel held under a full bridge) or a tourbillon regulator visible dial side.
