A great example of 1990s retro Gucci. This ladies piece with a rectangular case measuring only 12mm across and 34mm from lug to lug is fit for a petite wrist. It has a unique pink/silver dial with the logo spread across it. It boasts silver hands and the crown is marked with the logo. Original crystal intact and in really good condition, the case has a few scuffs from wear, but still really nice. The back case features the logo and serial number: 0235855, there are a few scratches evident there. The watch is set on an original used Gucci leather canvas bracelet with steel Gucci buckle, fits up to a 6.3” or 16cm wrist approximately.
Although the Gucci brand first started back in 1906, it was known mainly for the quality leather goods they made, which quickly became world famous. It wasn’t until the 70s that they decided to branch out with fashion watches, with a licensing agreement with Severin Montres (who they would later go on to buy outright in 1997).
While the partnership produced such style icons as the Gucci G watch, so called because the stylised ‘G’ was used as an integral part of the case design, it’s fair to say that it was a case of style over substance – all the watches used a quality Swiss movement.
Gucci watches are instantly recognisable, thanks in part to the often incorporated G logo, and for the stylistas, there’s nothing finer.
