An iconic Italian fashion trendsetter, the House of Gucci--better known just as Gucci--is renowned for its tradition of luxury and constant quest and attention for style and quality. It was founded in 1921 by Guccio Gucci when he opened a leather goods company and small luggage store in his home of Florence, Italy. Within a few years, the Gucci label attracted a sophisticated international clientele who sought out its equestrian-inspired collection of bags, trunks, gloves, shoes, and belts. By the 1960s, Gucci products became icons when worn by such fashion leaders as Jackie Kennedy (who carried a shoulder bag that today takes her name, Jackie O), Liz Taylor, and Grace Kelly.
Artistically combining the elegance of Italian design with the precision of Swiss horological craftsmanship, every Gucci timepiece represents watchmaking at its finest. From inception to finished piece, Gucci demands a commitment of the highest standards, attention to detail, and exacting quality control. Today's Gucci watches are made of the most durable materials, while design is focused on modernity--tweaking classic watch styles with contemporary lines and flourishes in order to make a mark of this time for years to come.
With the aim of connecting with a creative, music-loving audience, the GUCCI SYNC watch from Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry continues to remain true to its name, 'Social, Young, Network,Community'. Available in Large (36mm) or XXL (46mm) sizes, the khaki GUCCI SYNC is accented with a contrasting flash of color, seen in the red seconds hand and a variation of the recognizable Gucci web stripe, which runs through the strap and provides detail on the crown. Additional Gucci detailing can be seen in the interlocking 'GG' symbol on the dial in a matt finish, and the Gucci logo etched on the stainless steel case, at 9 o'clock. With its stadium-shaped steel bezel, sun-brushed dial, stainless steel and khaki transparent nylon case and khaki rubber strap, the GUCCI SYNC offers a cool blend of colors, textures and materials that combine to create a timepiece with a distinctly current and urban feel.
