The Gucci Interlocking-G Collection

Gucci News & Releases

We don’t spend a great deal of time discussing the work of Italian fashion icon Gucci here on our blog, and that’s a tremendous shame, as their workmanship certainly inspires a strong reaction whenever it goes on display. Whilst their vibrant and fresh horological creations may not be to everybody’s tastes, one must always applaud Gucci’s sense of innovation, and here at Banks Lyon we certainly feel that they are a standout example of a brand that understands how to imbue bangle timepieces with the attraction of jewellery. However, not all of their ranges lean towards jewellery aesthetics, and the Gucci Interlocking-G collection is a fantastic example of this versatility.

Gucci are perhaps rightly famous for gorgeous and delicate horological design, but the Interlocking-G assemblage forgoes that trend in favour of a modern visual style. Recently updated at Baselworld 2014, the Interlocking-G family is one of Gucci’s newest watch models, and contains timepieces that are suited for either masculine or feminine use. The major distinction is achieved through different case sizes, with the petit 29 mm cases of the ladies’ watches being joined by bolder, more prominent gent’s timepieces that measure 42 mm in diameter. However, all variants are demonstrably Gucci to the core, and the signature ‘Interlocking-G’ design is perhaps the most noticeable feature to hand.

The brainchild of Gucci’s Creative Director, Frida Giannini, the aesthetic of these watches brings the famous ‘double G’ emblem to the fore, and means that this most recognisable of Gucci symbols is now even more appreciable. As you might expect, the exact specifics of this form have been cunningly realised, with the 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions of the dial being designated using the branches of the twin ‘G’ signs; a decision which again proves that crisp design can serve a functional role too. Boasting polished or brushed finishes, as well as a wide selection of materials (including striking silver for the ladies, and sleek PVD for the gents), these unforgettable Gucci watches are guaranteed to draw attention time and time again.

For additional convenience and comfort, Gucci have equipped these watches with either leather straps or easy-fitting bracelets, and the use of a quartz movement has been decided upon to further this theme of accessibility. Able to keep perfect time without ever needing manual intervention, the quartz mechanisms make these timepieces ideal for everyday usage, and they are adroitly optimised in other areas too. Sapphire crystal shields the distinctive dials, and each watch possesses a practical water resistance and a two year warranty as standard. As a result, these Gucci timepieces remain intriguing and attractive, yet are also fantastic for what we might deem as ‘normal’ usage.

At Banks Lyon Jewellers, we have a generous selection of Gucci Interlocking-G watches for you to inspect, and these timepieces are priced between just £595 and £645. Furthermore, to accompany this accessibility, all of these wristwatches are available on flexible 0% finance, so there’s never been a better time to indulge in a stylish new Gucci watch. Of course, our complete assortment of Gucci watches is vast in size, and if you’d like to find out more please don’t hesitate to contact us now by calling 01524 38 48 58 or emailing personalshopper@bankslyon.co.uk.  We’ll doubtless have something to suit your preference.
