Gucci’s high watchmaking department has set the bar high with their new launches at 2023’s Watches & Wonders.

Across five signature collections, new watches feature tourbillons, moon phase movements and a new perpetual calendar, highlighting the brand’s knowledge of complications and gem setting.

G-Timeless Planetarium

Named after the Orion Nebula NGC 1976, one of the galaxy’s brightest stars, two lunar-themed G-Timeless Planetarium timepieces have been launched. One is set with 12 Ethiopian opals, and the second is a combination of topaz, peridot, amethyst and Ethiopian opals. Another design features rubies, pink tourmalines and fire opals, while the last is star-themed, set with diamonds.

G-Timeless Dancing Bees

Another tourbillon features the Gucci bee motif. Two eye-catching dials pay tribute to Gucci’s skill with precious stones. The first features twelve dancing bees on a turquoise dial while the second features the bees set on opal.

G-Timeless Moonlight

For watch geeks seeking a bespoke touch, Gucci has introduced the new made-to-order G-Timeless Moonlight watch, where a client’s specific place, time and date of birth are uniquely depicted on the dial. Clients begin with six gemstones that reflect the astral map, which is paired with six diamonds that are alternately set on a rotating rehaut.

Further personalisation comes via an internal ring that can be etched with up to five personal letters or characters, an oscillating weight displaying the client’s personal constellation and a customisable alligator strap.

Gucci 25H

The ultra-thin 25H collection also welcomes a smattering of new additions. First, an openwork Skeleton Tourbillon set with baguette diamonds, including 60 diamonds on the dial’s floating bridges and 44 diamonds on the bezel.

Then there’s a new Skeleton Tourbillon with coloured bridges and matching rubber straps. The watch’s components are a symphony of colour – an orange platine, pink flying tourbillon cage, purple barrel bridge and green minutery bridges elegant coordinate with an electric blue winding stem that can also be customised with eight digits on each of its four sides.

Finally, a new perpetual calendar complication has been introduced, powered by the GG727.25.PC calibre, which displays the time alongside days, months, years and moon phase (and which is so accurate that it won’t need adjusting to the year 2100!)
