Gucci Launches Timepiece Site

 Gucci Launches Timepiece Site

Gucci today launched GucciTimePieces, where you can see and purchase its watches, which, according to WWD, is a fledgling business for the big G. Personally I still have love for Gucci though it makes me mad when I pass by the knock-off vendors on 5th Ave in Manhattan to see how much fake Gucci they’re hawking lately. Someone once told me that the problem with copies is not so much that they cut into sales of the real thing, it’s more that the people who can afford lux prices get turned off from purchasing a bag that is so ubiquitous people wonder if it’s real or not. Case in point the LV Speedy. You pay all that money and everyone looks at it figuring you picked it up on the street for $40.

 My love of the high end designer men’s  watches is alive and well, and while I’ve not featured  as many , I  had to share the IWC Portuguese Automatic.  Featuring “IWC’s largest automatic movement on the market, the IWC Caliber 51011 calibre, with IWC’s exclusive Pellaton winding system, and 7 day power reserve” Stunning does not even do this beauty justice, and at  $13,500 you could prolly trade it in for a new Yaris!

bendels 5130 The Nixon Limited Edition 42 20

When Nixon launched a few years ago , they had my attention due to their smart and fun approach to marketing, the skater vibe  an the fact that their womens watche were not too dainty. Nonetheless I reverted to my snobby  old school watch strandard and kind of forgot about them, until they released a highly exclusive and limited 42-20 at legendary women’s boutique, Henri Bendel. The 42-20 features a genuine white, stingray strap, a diamond encrusted bezel, sapphire crystal and a Swiss Made automatic movement. There are two limited 42-20’s available and on-sale now at the New York City Henri Bendel thru May 11.
