Inspired by a passion for discovery, Gucci High Watchmaking revealed amazing timepieces that map and trace time through the House’s unique lens. To reveal its exceptional creations, Gucci presents the new campaign which is set across five signature collections and features tourbillons that showcase the House’s heritage alongside its contemporary savoir-faire. In rich colors that evoke the mystery and magic of our universe, the new kaleidoscopic designs include the G-Timeless Planetarium, G-Timeless Dancing Bees, G-Timeless Moonlight, the GUCCI 25H Skeleton Tourbillon, and Grip.
The G-Timeless Planetarium features four kaleidoscopic designs, all centered around the collection’s Dancing Hours Flying Tourbillon, GGC.1976.DS. Named after the Orion Nebula NGC 1976 – one of the brightest nebulas – the tourbillon is set with a diamond-studded star. A start-and-stop function on the crown activates a rotation of 12 precious stones, each one turning on itself in 9 seconds. This year, Gucci reveals two new editions of the watch: one is set with 12 Ethiopian opals; the second a pastel melange of topaz, peridot, amethyst and Ethiopian opals.
The G-Timeless Dancing Bees collection celebrates the bee motif. For 2023, two exceptional stone dials pay tribute to Mother Earth. The first features a turquoise dial that draws inspiration from the water of the oceans seen by the space; the second captures lush, verdant lands with a vibrant pistachio green opal dial. The gemstones that adorn the timepiece are first polished to a thickness of only 0.45mm before being cut into small, individual rectangles, which are then painstakingly laid on a mother-of-pearl plate of a just 0.15mm thick. The accompanying star-studded tourbillon rests within a diamond-set crescent at 12 o’clock.
Gucci presents a new made-to-order G-Timeless Moonlight that features a client’s specific place, time and date of birth. Clients begin with six gemstones that reflect the astral map, linked to zodiac signs and the birthday planets’ position, which is paired with six diamonds that are alternately set on a rotating rehaut.
In 2023, Gucci reveals an openwork GUCCI 25H Skeleton Tourbillon that is set with baguette diamonds, including 60 diamonds on the dial’s floating bridges and 44 diamonds on the bezel. A flying tourbillon at 6 o’clock rotates every minute, and will align with the bridge once during its journey. The winding stem can also be personalized with up to eight letters on each of the stem’s four sides. The watch comes in either 18kt pink or white gold, with matching gold skeleton hands and paired with either a deep cobalt or black alligator strap respectively.
