Gucci dive watch

I wanted to purchase a holiday watch for when I'm not wearing my Rolex.

You know rough play in the sea or whatever. I know of course Rolex is fantastic in water etc but I'm always scared of that 'what if' moment it ever came off while diving or sailing I'd cry forever so had a look around at something cheapish but cool and I've gotta say I'm so impressed with this purchase.

I never looked at Gucci as a luxury watch brand just a very good designer house but when I saw this watch I was instantly attracted to the look of it and after viewing it I loved it. Been wearing it on and off for around 6-7 months now and I'm so impressed.

Not only does it look good, it feels so comfortable, it's durable, has a really slick clasp and strap and for 700 I couldn't be happier.

If ever you're looking for an alternative watch I couldn't recommend this highly enough.

Does Gucci outsources their watches from a Swiss maison?

Probably a Jean Richard quartz branded for Gucci. Nothing wrong with that, too.

Kering Group owns Gucci and GP, Uly Nardin and Jean Richard watches.
