Gorilla - Fastback Drift
Gorilla is a watch brand based in Cressier in the canton of Neuchatel Switzerland. Founded in 2016 by former Audemars Piguet Chief Artistic Officer, Octavio Garcia, and former Audemars Piguet Senior Designer Lukas Gopp. Informed by 30 years of combined experience Gorilla is driven by a deeply rooted passion for horology and the relentless pursuit of delivering elegantly rambunctious, soulful horologic experiences. The Fastback DRIFT wandering hours was born of team collaboration with worldleading Swiss movement manufacturer, Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier. Together Gorilla and Vaucher rose to the challenge of designing, engineering and manufacturing a new class of complication bearing the technical and emotional attributes reserved to high watchmaking.
The Drift proprietary Gorilla 5238 wandering hours caliber is a contemporary reinterpretation of a 17th-century horologic mechanism, housed in a uniquely sculpted blend of high-performance materials, purposefully assembled in a sequence and designed to augment the user experience. The Gorilla Fastback Drift is a limited edition intended accessible to a new generation of watch collectors.
