Gucci Watches: A History- Watch Sell

Watch Sell

Gucci G Watch

Founded in 1921 by Guccio Gucci, Gucci has become one of the best known and oldest fashion names in the world. Gucci first product was high quality saddelery and leather goods that proved popular with consumers.  Later employing years of expert leather craftsmanship Gucci began to create luxury deluxe suitcases. These suitcases were of such high caliber that demand soared allowing Gucci to branch off into other luxury goods. In 1953 Gucci opened a store in New York City and a London store in 1961. The company headquarters today is located in Amsterdam and the administrative center in London.

It was not until 1972 that Gucci entered the luxury watch market. Italy’s economy began to soar creating more jobs and a high level of disposable income. At first Gucci only sold these watches in Italy and had few designs. One of the earliest designs was a bangle watch with interchangeable dials in different colors.  Soon demand for Gucci branded watches spread across Europe  and to the United States. Like its purses, suitcases and perfume, Gucci has spared no expense in the creation of its watches while pricing the timepieces well below other luxury brands such as Rolex, Patek Philippe and Breitling. Modern Gucci watches without diamonds or sapphires normally retail for $1,900 to $600, which is quite affordable and allows Gucci access to a considerably larger segment of the market.

Possibly the most famous of all the Gucci watches is that of the letter G. This is the symbol of Gucci, and has remained one of their most successful time pieces to this day. For many years little was done to this forward thinking design and sales peaked in the mid 90’s. Today the G has many models for both men and women, the more popular models incorporate the simple band and bezel of the past with a modern dial often with choreographic features. Raymond Lee Jewelers is one of South Florida’s most trusted watch sell.
