Our Watch Fair takes place every year during the Princeton University Alumni Weekend (aka the biggest party in Princeton), so we are partial to the new Gucci collection featuring Princeton’s famous mascot. All tigers aside, this collection is design at its finest from one of the world’s most notable fashion houses.
Gucci’s rebooted Le Marché de Merveilles collection features handsome gold PVD 38mm case attached to a retro, bund-style strap, and a reliable quartz movement. Most striking of all is the dial work, which showcase a flawlessly embroidered animal design. Choices include bees and snakes – but our favorite is the roaring tiger, a reminder to everyone who sees it that its wearer is stylish and ferocious.
For the ladies, there’s a special design in which the dial’s tiger image runs up and down, past the case and onto the strap itself – a unique design that we haven’t seen anywhere else.
