GU C C I GUCCI Timepieces & Jewelry introduces new GUCCI Handmaster automatic variants

When first released in 2014, the Gucci Handmaster collection embodied a new breed of luxury watches for Gucci Timepieces, showcasing the very best of its watchmaking artistry. Blending graceful aesthetics with refined materials and quality movements, Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry is delighted to extend this premium range with two new models that introduce a classic, rounded design.

With their handsome allure, range of functionalities and automatic movements, the new variants continue to uphold the Gucci Handmaster hallmarks of elegance and craftsmanship. The House’s quintessential Italian styling is seen in a wealth of smart details that include sophisticated crocodile leather straps and elegant Gucci accents on the clasp and dial.

Each Gucci Handmaster Automatic watch is part of a limited edition, one of 99 models that comes individually numbered. These unique pieces represent an ideal way to mark the year’s achievements, or to welcome in a New Year with a statement of handcrafted style.

These two new models, both in a 40mm size, come in a choice of two different materials and movements: a stainless steel and black version, or a precious variant in pink gold and grey. The stainless steel model is equipped with a GP3300 automatic movement by Sowind Manufactures. This movement drives the power reserve indicator, and the watch also shows a date display and small seconds counter. The stylish 18kt pink gold variant features a GP2700 automatic movement, also by Sowind Manufactures, with three hands and date dis- play at 6 o’clock. On each piece, these inner mechanics are visible through the transparent glass case back, a window onto the oscillating weight, which is personalized with Gucci’s iconic diamante pattern.
