The horsebit is one of Gucci’s signature icons. First introduced in the 1950’s, the horsebit was originally inspired by the equestrian pastimes of Florentine high society. Used across shoes, accessories and jewelry, the horsebit icon now translates into a stylish new watch collection for women released in several variants, including precious models.
Made from stainless steel, the curves of the horsebit shape take centre stage on these elegant 28mm size watches. A rounded stainless steel bangle complements the forms of the horsebit curves and adds a jewelry look to the models. Dials are either coloured, in dark red or brown, or set with black or white mother of pearl. The white mother of pearl model has precious accents, as seen in the horsebit case decorated with 12 diamonds. On all these four models, indexes are shown as Roman numerals, and the Gucci logo appears at 3 o’clock.
An additional exclusive precious model features the horsebit etched in 92 diamonds, encircling a white mother of pearl dial. Further detailing includes three diamond indexes at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock and the Gucci logo at 12 o’clock.
Other models in the range include a larger 34mm variant, worked into a bolder, broader interpretation of the horsebit icon. These timepieces are available with leather straps and additional colours.
