In 2013 Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry introduced the Gucci Dive, a genuine diver sports watch with high-performance mechanics. Now, Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry is expanding this flagship collection with eight new Gucci Dive quartz extensions in a myriad materials and colours.
Each of these lifestyle timepieces features the traditional diver aesthetic, incorporating the unidirectional rotating bezel, and expressing a strong sports allure. The watches are crafted from stainless steel and are presented in a wide variety of personal styles, thanks to the mix of classic, edgy or sporty models.
These bold ‘Swiss Made’ watches all feature a quartz movement and offer high water resistance, to 200 metres. Sizes in the collection vary: three come in a small 32mm, three others in a larger 40mm variant, and two more are offered in an extra-large 45mm.
For those who like to make a statement, the duo of bold 45 mm models is characterised by choice. A two-tone blue version with a blue matt dial and stainless steel bracelet upholds the nautical theme, whilst a truly masculine all-black and rubber variant takes Gucci Dive styling to its most powerful expression.
In the smaller and large pieces, it’s Gucci’s signature Italian details that imbues each timepiece with its unique personality. The iconic green-red-green Gucci web stripe is used to add a flash of colour to a white matt dial, for a fresh look. Accents of red on the all-black 40mm version drive up the dynamism of the piece, and in contrast, a softer allure is achieved elsewhere with a pink sun-brushed dial.
Each of the timepieces shows the Gucci logo at 12 o’clock with the date and Swiss Made stamp at 6 o’clock. As a final seal of quality and authenticity, these new watches have the historic House crest logo engraved on the case back. This emblem tells the Gucci story through a series of meaningful symbols: a knight carrying a suitcase and handbag instead of a shield and sword harks back to Guccio Gucci’s time spent as a bellboy, and a rose stands for beauty. The Gucci name flies above, emblazoned on a ribbon.
This eight-strong Gucci Dive collection showcases Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry’s effortless ability to develop different watch styles around a single concept, infusing the world of sports with trademark Italian style.
