Exploring the Gucci G-Timeless Watch Collection
Friday - 10 December 2021
Jura Watches has recently become an official UK stockist of genuine Gucci jewellery and watches. Here, we shine a light on some top picks from the Gucci G-Timeless watch collection.
Although having dipped its toes in watchmaking waters during the 1970s, Gucci wasn’t really recognized for its beautiful wristwatches until the 1990s. The brand’s heritage in bold and influential jewellery design is revered in success thanks to a unique approach to craftsmanship – each design having a very distinctive style. But what makes a Gucci watch from the G-Timeless collection so desirable? Well, quite a lot of things. Firstly, many elements of Gucci’s innovative jewellery range are brought through to the brand’s watch collections. The G-Timeless watch collection is associated with many a brand motif. These include hour tracks represented in hearts, diamond-shaped studs and stars, as well as meticulously embroidered dials against canvas backdrops that bring the famous bee, at and kingsnake motif to life. As with all its watches, G-Timeless models are crafted from robust materials including stainless steel cases with indulgent yellow gold-plated finishes, strong bracelets, stylish leather bands and anti-reflective sapphire crystal glass fronts.
Gucci is still considered a relative newcomer to the world of watchmaking. By the time its watches were entering the market, the famed fashion house had already garnered enough popularity and reputation to embark on this new chapter with confidence. The Gucci company itself harkens back to the early 1900s when Guccio Gucci first opened his boutique in Italy, yet the brand’s watches only ventured into the market during the 1970s and soared to great heights in the 1990s when Gucci watches were the ultimate fashion statement to own. Having recently become official stockists of Gucci watches, we’re incredibly excited to show you some of the latest additions to our online collections here at Jura Watches. Here are some of our favourite pieces from the G-Timeless watch collection.
The Gucci G-Timeless Bloom watch reference YA1264038A comes enveloped in delicate petals and epitomizes femininity and elegance with its beautifully proportioned 38mm case crafted from yellow gold PVD-coated stainless steel. Subtle punches of colour against a canvas dial present a beautiful flower motif in pinks and greens. The watch is a tangible design that mixes textures and materials with examples of meticulous attention to detail. An anti-reflective lens of sapphire crystal glass protects the surface of the dial with embroidered petals and stems dressed against a bold black GG motif. The dial is also crowned with a polished yellow gold-plated bee motif, which sits at the top of the dial at 12 o’clock, accompanying a central second hand bearing a GG adorned counterweight. The material strap continues the floral decoration across the circumference of the wrist, creating a band of colour and texture and securing with a Gucci-engraved pin buckle-style fastening.
As the name of the collection suggests, Gucci G-Timeless watches are designed for wearing every single day of the week. The Gucci G-Timeless watches YA126596, YA1265012 and YA1264074 all share one thing in common - the Gucci cat motif. The feline symbol has been seen in the brand’s clothing lines before but also features on the dials of the manufacturer's elegant wristwatches. All three of these models boast a bi-colour design crafted from stainless steel and yellow gold PVD-coated elements, along with a shimmering cat motif in a yellow gold plating. Offered up in a silver or mother of pearl dial, the watches come in a 27mm and 38mm size respectively and boast an hour track presented in a mix of yellow gold-plated symbols comprising stars, bees, hearts and studs. These design codes run throughout Gucci’s G-Timeless watch collection, offering a unisex style that can be enjoyed by both men and women alike.
The Gucci G-Timeless watch reference YA126487B has a dial and strap dressed in Gucci’s signature green and red striped design. The single red strip squeezed in between two green bands is a design that is seen throughout the Italian brand’s extensive range of watches, belts, bags and other lifestyle accessories. In this watch, the canvas dial forming a red and green striped backdrop features yellow gold-plated hands set on top of a gold embroidered bee motif. The famous bee motif features prominently in the mythology of nearly every culture, including those of the Mayans, Hindus, Egyptians, and ancient Greeks. The apogee of the Gucci bee, however, is perfectly captured in this elegant yellow gold PVD-coated stainless steel model measuring a 38mm diameter.
Just like the bee, the Kingsnake motif slinks throughout the Gucci watch range and is seen in G-Timeless watches like the reference YA1264075. A red, blue and white snake features across the surface of a silver dial equipped with simple gold-plated hands and an hour track featuring a mix of motifs once again. The 12 o’clock location is represented by the GG motif, whilst the back of the watch’s closed caseback, concealing a quartz movement behind it, is represented by an engraved bee. The Kingsnake is associated with values shared by the brand such as strength, stealth and determination. A mix of yellow gold-plated links and stainless steel links combine to achieve a dressy look on the wrist, making this men’s 38mm Gucci G-Timeless watch the perfect companion for matching with a suit or other formal attire.
The GG initials have been reimagined in many ways over the years but the motif remains the most instantly recognisable symbol in all Gucci manufacture. The Gucci G-Timeless watch reference YA1264034A features an indulgent black textured dial featuring an embossed GG logo across its surface. The yellow gold-plated hour and minute hands are beautifully carved and taper to a fine tip whilst catching the light underneath a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass front. The top of the dial is once again adorned with a gold bee motif and the watch is powered by a reliable Swiss-made quartz movement. The G-Timeless watch is styled for those with a preference for classic-looking, elegant wristwatches and comes completed on a black leather strap embossed with a repeated GG pattern upon its surface.
