|It started from humble beginnings in 1920. Guccio Gucci opened a shop in Florence
featuring his fine leathergoods accessories for men and women. Soon after, he and his
sons, Aldo, Ugo, Vasco and Rodolfo, spread the Gucci name to Rome and Milan. By
New York City had a Gucci store selling the world famous Gucci classics - handbags with a
bamboo handle, moccasins with snaffle-bit detailing, trademark G belt clasps, and printed
silk foulards and ties. By the late '60s additional stores had been opened in London, Palm
Beach, Paris, Beverly Hills and Tokyo. Soon after, Rodolfo's son Mauritzio resurrected his
grandfather's motto, "Stay small to remain great" and cut the Gucci line back
from over 20,000 items to 5,000 and recaptured the prestigious brand's focus on high
quality accessories. Fortunately, the Gucci collection of fine watches survived.
Today, Gucci watches are modern interpretations of the original classic Gucci style. Each watch is an individual commitment to both Swiss precision and good taste. The signature G Series models feature stainless steel construction, scratch-resistant hard metal bezels in the G design, sapphire crystals and a variety of dial colors.Available in link bracelet with push-button double fold clasps or black patent leather strap, the G Series is offered in men's, women's and junior sizes. Other dress and sporty designs feature 18 karat gold or stainless steel rotating cases with signature G on casebacks, bracelets with signature Gucci buckle closure, and lizard-embossed leather straps and bangles in a wide variety of colors. Truly the ultimate in timekeeping fashions - Gucci watches capture the art of watchmaking and style at their finest.
