Gucci is a part of the universal lexicon of fashion. You can wear the brand anywhere in the world and turn heads.
The company has come a long way from their humble beginnings as a leather and goods shop in 1920s Florence. We sometimes have to wonder if founder Guccio Gucci ever imagined his name would be displayed as a badge of honor at high profile awards shows, or shown off in music videos.
Gucci watches, in particular, are so striking and unique that we can’t take our eyes off of them. Featuring a stunning variety of designs that live on the peak of fashion, they take chances that always pay off. We can’t think of many luxury watch brands doing the sorts of things that Gucci does.
Perhaps the most astounding feature of Gucci watches is how affordable they are. Many of these incredible pieces are below $1000!
Let’s go through some of our favorites, both for men and women. To be honest, almost any Gucci watch could be on this list, but these are the handful that we dream about at night.
Sometimes, being fashionable means adding a little bite to your look. The Dive Black Snake Dial adds even more than that. Featuring a winding black viper across the dial surrounded by stark white orbs, this watch is for a guy who likes to feel a little bit dangerous. The black, white, and silver color scheme is broken up with a hint of red and blue along the first quarter of minute markers, and a green second hand draws the eye as it glides its way across the black dial like a sliver of venom.
There’s a lot to take in with this watch. Or maybe it’s the watch taking you in? Either way, it’s not easy to pull your eyes away from the darker than the darkest night dial. When you do manage to take in the rest of the watch, you’ll definitely notice that this isn’t your grandfather’s timepiece. The dual window design and lack of revolving hands is a welcome twist on classic design standards, and the outer chronograph adds a touch of light to the dial that keeps you spinning.
This playful take on a galactic design is perfect for any man, but especially necessary for a werewolf. Or maybe with this beauty on your wrist you’re more of a wear-wolf. Either way, the stunning sub dial at the center displays the phases of the moon, so you’ll never be caught transforming into your lycanthropic alter ego in the middle of the dance floor. Speaking of dancing, we’re quite honestly in awe of the stellar dial and the way the cartoonish galactic bodies seem to dance across the midnight blue.
We can’t promise that this watch will win you a grammy, but we can promise you that it’s a prize you’ll never leave home without. The golden interlocking Gs are designed in a way to allow the sharpened dials to pass underneath like an optical illusion, and the dial is a black vinyl record, pressed for luxury and playing back the song of your life at a constant 33 ⅓ RPM. With this baby on your wrist, you’ll always feel like you’re at the top of the charts.
Loosely translated, Le Marche Des Merveilles means “The Wonder Factory,” a theatrical name for a line of watches featuring dramatic designs. This particular model showcases a black, white, and red snake that coils its way up the black leather strap and into the dial. Snakes are often misunderstood creatures, but there will be no misunderstandings when you’re wearing this watch. Sleek, elegant, with just a hint of danger, people will know that there’s a lot more to you than meets the eye.
We love the color pink. Playful, fun, bright, it’s one of our absolute favorites. But pink leather with a golden colored bezel? We’re screaming! This G-Timeless is simple with a patterned pink leather dial that lacks any sort of minute or hour markers, but the look is loudly fashionable and oozes elegance. The pink leather band looks like a dream and fits like a cloud and adds that extra bounce to your step that will be turning heads.
When we first saw this watch, we were so taken aback by its beauty that we had to look a few times before we even noticed the sparkling diamonds at the quarter hour marks. The dial is a swathe of dark greens and purples that looks like the sky over A Midsummer Night’s Dream, punctuated with dancing silver hands and a fairy-like motif around the edges. It all blends together so well that the diamonds become its best-kept secret. When people see you wearing this exquisite piece, they’ll wonder if you have some secrets of your own.
We’ve heard of adding a splash of color to an outfit, but this Rainbow Vintage Web Plexiglass watch is on a whole different level! Featuring a multicolored waterfall that runs across the entire watch, accented by stunning red and blue additions on a featured plate surrounding the dial, this piece is loud and overflowing with joy. It’s a celebration of rainbow aesthetics with the pot of gold at its center in the form of a dazzling white mother of pearl dial. You won’t have to say a word and it will be clear that the party has arrived.
We have so many spectacular Gucci watches that we’re sure we’d kick ourselves over just how many were left off the list. You owe it to yourself to browse our full selection and see them for yourself.
