The Gucci High Watchmaking collection can be discovered by appointment at Gucci’s first dedicated boutique at Place Vendôme, Paris.
The atmosphere of this kaleidoscopic collection is inspired by a magical fairground, where refined watchmaking styles appear alongside rainbow-like gems and celestial wonders. Entering this enchanted universe is like immersing into a thrilling series of roller-coaster rides.
GUCCI 25H High Jewelry watch
Inspired by the sleek forms of contemporary architecture, GUCCI 25H encapsulates the House’s aesthetic and highlights the brand’s understanding of fine-watchmaking codes.
With its 8mm-thick case and see-through dial, the GUCCI 25H Skeleton Tourbillon watch is designed around the movement, creating an illusion of floating mechanics above the bridges at the base of the dial. With skeleton hands adding a subtle layering effect, the craftsmanship of this timepiece is attested by a flying tourbillon at 6 o’clock. This feature regulates timekeeping, while its technical design adds a contemporary, decorative touch.
GUCCI G-TIMELESS PLANETARIUM watch
With its 12 gemstones circling the dial, the G-Timeless Planetarium watch shines a precious light on time’s ever-changing view. The gem-set wheel is activated through a button, rotating around the dial in a gala of light. The arrow-shaped watch hands pay homage to high watchmaking’s heritage of fine technical detail, while each turn of the dial is a playful reminder of Gucci Swiss Timepieces’ dynamic fusion of new technology and timeless Italian style.
GUCCI G-TIMELESS MOONLIGHT timepiece
G-Timeless Moonlight’s dial is decorated with an ever-changing moon, which starts its journey from a gleaming silver crescent to evolve into a pearlescent whole.
Created around the new, Gucci caliber GGV838.MP, the sheer technological precision of this timepiece allows it to dictate its own time, following the 29.5-day lunar month.
A feat of high watchmaking excellence, this timepiece only needs to be adjusted every 360 years.
GUCCI GRIP SAPPHIRE watch
Gucci Grip Sapphire combines a retro-digital look with precious, technological materials. Crafted from sapphire crystal, this Jump Hour watch is defined by contrasting colored glass on the minutes and hour windows—a playful technical detail speaking to Gucci’s approach to design.
Two mint green Grip iterations are added to the collection, each with a transparent caseback.
The first features two laser-cut turquoise hours and minutes discs, while the other showcases mauve-pink discs. Each design is completed with a matching transparent rubber strap and sapphire crown.
GUCCI G-TIMELESS DANCING BEES watch
Drawing on the eclectic spirit of the Gucci House, nature-inspired motifs blend with the exceptional design of G-Timeless Dancing Bees—a compelling timepiece with a high jewelry touch defined by bees that shimmer and move on the dial. For the new collection, Gucci presents new diamond-set additions to the family where master craftsmen have heightened the natural, glossy sheen of two rare opal varieties to form rectangular bricks, creating a miniature chevron pattern on a mother-of-pearl dial.
Giardino 25: The celebration is extended to all Gucci’s creations.
Located in Florence’s Piazza della Signoria, Giardino 25 is the House’s new all-day café and cocktail bar and the latest addition to Gucci Garden, the multidisciplinary collaborative and creative space designed by Creative Director Alessandro Michele that opened in January 2018. Taking inspiration from one of the location’s previous tenants, a historical florist, the venue is characterized by a sense of wonder and harmonious contrasts, playing with the codes of the House and its Florentine surroundings, while drawing from the colours, scents and exuberance of a flower shop.
Giardino 25 is helmed by the Umbria-born Martina Bonci, whose passion for mixology began in her great grandmother’s kitchen with furtive sips of wine and was shaped by diverse experiences throughout Italy. Her distinctive line-up of balanced, colorful cocktails is characterized by creative inventiveness and high-quality ingredients, reflecting the core values of the House. Martina infuses the same level of dedication into her ideation of non-alcoholic cocktails, guided by her desire to offer a consistently imaginative experience across the entire drinks offering.
Giardino 25’s all-day menu is a reflection of the locale’s dual identity as a place to enjoy daytime interludes and livelier after-hours happenings with an assorted offering, prepared by an on-site kitchen that reverently embraces seasonality while drawing creativity from the Tuscan countryside. Breakfast will present a varied and international selection while light dishes are available for both lunch and dinner, rounded out by Afternoon Tea. A particular homage is paid to the culture of coffee through a careful curation of specialty blends, which can be enjoyed in the form of an espresso at the bar or at a more leisurely pace in one of the space’s intimate sitting areas.
Gucci Giardino 25: the Elisir d’Elicriso
Created in collaboration with Giorgio Bargiani of The Connaught Bar in London for Gucci Giardino 25, the Elisir d’Elicriso is a new bespoke collector’s cocktail with a rich, herbal, and rounded profile drawn from local botanicals, apothecary and natural herbs from the Mediterranean, vetiver, and the essential oil of “elicriso” (helichrysum italicum). Discover a sensorial experience that evokes the lush gardens of Tuscany with this perfectly balanced blend that is complex yet light and sweet on the palate.
