GUCCI Handmaster Automatic

Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry is introducing a new collection for men and women as part of its premium line of watches. The Gucci Handmaster reflects the range of artisan abilities of Gucci Timepieces’ own watchmaking atelier in La Chauxde-Fonds, where Italian style is matched by Swiss quality; all watches are assembled by hand, and special attention is given to the creation of each timepiece.

The men’s model contains a GP3300 movement with 46-hour power reserve while the women’s timepiece comes with a GP2700 movement and 36-hour power reserve; movements are provided by Sowind Manufacture. Each watch features a transparent case back that displays the timepiece’s inner mechanisms; this includes an oscillating weight engraved with Gucci’s iconic diamante pattern.

The Gucci Handmaster for men (32.5 x 33mm) comes with a polished stainless steel rectangular case with slightly inclined sides, which lends depth to the piece. The timepiece has a vintage look underlined by a distinct dial: a black sun-brushed finish, showing the recognizable diamante motif is overlaid with silver Roman numerals and hands in a classical design. Core functionalities include a date display seen at halfpast one, a power reserve indicator at 5 o’clock, and small second counter at 9 o’clock. The black dial is matched with a black crocodile leather strap, which boasts a stirrup buckle; recalling the House’s equestrian detailing.

Women are offered a similar design (26.5 x 27.5mm) in polished stainless steel with pink gold-coloured accents on hands and numerals. Once again, the black sun brushed dial shows a traditional sundial design encircled by Roman numerals with a date counter at 6 o’clock. Iconic Gucci styling is seen in the diamante pattern background and “Gucci Automatic “at 12 o’ clock. A matching black alligator leather strap is combined with the stirrup-buckle, as a finishing touch.

The Gucci Handmaster timepiece is also offered in a precious variant, crafted with an 18kt gold case and matching gold details on the dial.

Both versions in steel and gold are produced in limited edition quantities and come with special watch boxes and certificates highlighting the fine craftsmanship of these elegant pieces. Quintessentially elegant, the new Gucci Handmaster blends beauty and practicality, underscored with a respect for fine craftsmanship.
