GUCCI 2022 HIGH WATCHMAKING COLLECTION
In 2022, Gucci presents its second high watchmaking collection at the Gucci Wonderland event in Geneva.
April 4, 2022
The mood of this kaleidoscopic Gucci 2022 High Watchmaking collection is inspired by a magical fairground, where the most refined watchmaking complications appear alongside rainbow-like gems and celestial wonders.
Entering this enchanted universe is like being catapulted onto a thrilling series of roller-coaster rides. Three new Gucci-designed watch movements are revealed: 25H Skeleton Tourbillon, G-Timeless, and Grip Sapphire.
With its impossibly sleek, 8mm-thick case and captivating see-through dial, the 25H Skeleton Tourbillon arrives with a new Gucci exclusive caliber flying tourbillon. With skeleton hands adding a subtle layering effect, the watch is a feat of craft, style, and extraordinary skill, announced by a flying tourbillon at 6 o’clock.
A pioneering addition to the high watchmaking genre, with its halo of 12 princess-set gemstones circling the dial, the G-Timeless Planetarium shines a precious light on time’s ever-changing view. Gucci takes the carnival of time to the skies with the G-Timeless Moonlight. On the dial, a beautifully decorated moon waxes from gleaming sliver crescent to pearlescent whole before beginning its celestial journey all over again. In 2022, Gucci presents new diamond-set additions to its family of G-Timeless Dancing Bees tourbillon timepieces. In homage to historical en-tremblant jewelry styles, where jewels were exquisitely engineered to move in rhythm with the wearer, 12 bees shimmer around the diamond-set dial as the wrist moves.
Gucci adds two vivid mint green variations to its signature Grip Sapphire mechanical collection. The transparent, cushion-shaped watch case is expertly cut from a cylinder of pure sapphire crystal using a specialist machine. The case is then polished to pristine transparency.
