Since 1921, the House of Gucci has broken design barriers and pushed the industry forward as a leading, global luxury brand. And now, it celebrates 50 years of its Swiss timepieces with its second “High Watchmaking” collection.

Celebrating the anniversary at its “Gucci Wonderland” event in Geneva, a magical fairground inspired the house with kaleidoscopic gems, celestial wonders, and an enchanting approach to refined watchmaking complications. Among the new Gucci-designed watch movements are the “GUCCI 25H SKELETON TOURBILLON,” the “G-TIMELESS PLANETARIUM,” and the “G-TIMELESS MOONLIGHT,” the “G-TIMELESS DANCING BEES” and the “GRIP SAPPHIRE.”

And for the first time, the house presented a journey through five unparalleled decades of “Italian-born, Swiss-made design,” utilizing watch diaries of the ‘50s, handbag watches of the ‘60s, and semi-precious stone bangle watches from the ‘70s.

Gucci envisioned a “Planetarium” Ferris wheel with bubbling emeralds, a “Grip-O-Meter,” and a haunted house that showcases a skeleton watch frame dial in a dazzling supporting film visual. Rubber duckies floating in a circular pool and a carousel of the collection timepieces close out the video presentation.

More information on Gucci’s “High Watchmaking” collection can be found on the brand’s website.

Elsewhere in fashion, Gucci’s Women’s Day capsule collection launched with success and change in mind.
