Swiss watch brand Gc dedicates a totally new collection for ladies : The Gc Femme. The sophisticated design of the watch mirrors the multi-facetted lifestyle of the modern active woman of today. Characterized by the distinguishing clip-down crown-protector, the Gc Femme allies sophisticated glamour with sporty chic in a timepiece that is as much at home in the workplace as on a smart night out. Created for women who know what they want, are ready to achieve it and are always in control.
The distinguished detail of this new series is the crown protector clip which provides a decisive character to this timepiece. Requiring a determined manipulation action to set or manage the time, this function not only underlines the contemporary and dynamic expression of the watch, but it also reflects the active and self-confident personality of the Gc woman.
The plain round case and bezel with subtle minute engravings (or diamond settings) frame the very balanced yet expressive dial design. The chronograph version features three subdials with 30-minutes, small second and 1/10 of second indicators while the multifunction models offer day and date counters at 3 and 9 hours.
Natural mother-of-pearl dials provide an elegant shimmer, enhanced by a pleasantly light and feminine choice of rose gold PVD also picked out by the indices and counter circles of the dial in the chic rose gold models. The star of this line is the polished steel version with diamond studded bezel. The diamonds are set in attractive and distinctive crescent-shaped curves alternating with screw details, indicative of the alliance between action and sophistication.
The new steel bracelet design with smooth soft links perfects the fashionable style of the Gc Femme. It is extremely comfortable to wear and gracefully embraces the wrist. As inherent in all Gc timepieces this new ladies series is equipped with high precision Swiss movements and scratch-resistant sapphire crystals. All timepieces feature a screw-down crown with embossed Gc logo as well as a screwed case back with a water resistance up to 100 meters (10 ATM).
