Five Reasons To Love The Gucci Grip

Five Reasons To Love The Gucci Grip

Known to create a storm on the fashion front, the creative director of Gucci – Alessandro Michele – has extended his creative vision into a new watch collection, the Gucci Grip

Timeless, genderless and effortless, the Grip takes inspiration from the handshake and also by the grip of a trainer to a skateboard. With a very 70s aesthetic, the collection showcases four designs each characterised by a rounded square case, three windows with rotating disks, and its innovative Swiss movement. 

Here are five reasons you’re going to love this collection. 

1. Own a collection designed by Alessandro Michele

Since fashion designer Alessandro Michele came onto the scene in 2015, Gucci’s watch collections have undergone a makeover to help connect them to the rest of Gucci’s statement creations. The Gucci Grip is the first collection created by Alessandro Michele himself that fits the brand’s new tone of voice entirely. You’ll be wearing a piece of Michele’s art.

2. A statement piece to take you from day to night

There are no boundaries when it comes to style with the new Gucci Grip watches. Designed without definition of gender, the collection houses a 35mm and 38mm case along with interchangeable straps, allowing you to choose the style that suits you best. We love the fact you can change your watch strap to match your outfit!

3. Combining Italian craftmanship with Swiss watchmaking

As much as the Gucci Grip is impressive to look at with its timeless 70s aesthetic, it also has impressive inner workings. With ‘Swiss Made’ to its name, the Gucci Grip boasts scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass, PVD plated high grade steel and most importantly meets extremely high levels of precision, so you know you’re wearing a watch that will last a lifetime.

4. Snug to the wrist

Taking inspiration from the world of skateboarding and how the trainer grips to the board, the Gucci Grip boasts a clean, streamlined design that sits comfortably around the wrist. The slim dial is perfect for sliding under your work suit.

5. It comes in one of four specially designed boxes

We absolutely adore the unique boxes this watch comes with. Keeping the vintage 70s theme alive, they’re designed in a beautiful peacock leather making the box a special keepsake in its own right.
