Gucci has released new iterations of its well-known Grip watch range, this time coming with additional features such as chronograph functions, additional strap color options and a 40mm case. The Gucci Grip line offering for men and women – including the latest chrono watches and other products in the range – is showcased in a lookbook shot by HYPEBEAST.
“Grip” references the snug fit against the wrist and the movements involved in skateboarding. The design also reflects the action sport, with the logo-engraved face mimicking the way that sneakers grip to the adhesive tape on a skateboard. Each Grip watch features a rounded square case with three windows, in which three white rotating disks indicate the hour, minute, and date respectively.
One of the newest editions in the range brings together a yellow gold PVD case and yellow gold PVD bracelet, both engraved with Gucci’s signature Interlocking G logo, while another look is worked purely in steel for a sleek and modern look. Adding a sophisticated and luxurious touch of color to the line, a further iteration is offered with green-colored calf leather straps and a steel case.
A 40mm chronograph Grip timepiece has also been introduced, coming with a tachymeter which enables the wearer to measure the time it takes to cover one kilometer and two windows on the dial to indicate the hour and minute. The watch has a black rubber strap showing the Interlocking G symbol and a red dot – which moves around the edge of the dial – forms the chronograph function.
A contemporary touch to the Grip collection comes with a bold new 38mm watch. It features a gray PVD case and bracelet, both engraved with the GG logo. The streamlined, vintage-shaped dial is typical of the Grip line, with three windows in which black disks indicate the hour, minute, and date, and a dark metal coating creates an elegant titanium effect across the watch.
