Wild at He(art) – Launch of Gc African Dream Collection



Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons collaborated with ExpatWoman to launch GC’s new ‘African Dream’ collection.  More than 100 members of the ExpatWoman community celebrated the launch with a breakfast at Burj Al Arab and the opportunity to preview the ‘African Dream’ timepieces.  Two lucky guests also won a night’s stay at the iconic Jumeirah hotel and a painting by British wildlife artist Stella Mays.  Gc business manager, Antonio Statelli, welcomed the guests and unveiled the new range of Africa-inspired watches.  Crafted in rose gold with either a calf leather or link bracelet, pieces from the new GC collection feature embellished mother of pearl dials and patterned bezels that evoke the exoticism of the savannah.


Take a Walk on the Wild Side

With the new African Dream Collection, the Swiss prestige watch brand Gc invites you on an excursion right into the heart of Africa. Subtle leopard and giraffe patterns decorate the bezel of the iconic Gc Diver Chic and Mini Chic series. These rose gold (PVD) watches with their sophisticated animal design and their natural mother-of-pearl dials bring the beauty of the African wilderness to the wrist. Extravagant and enchanting!

The softly shimmering models with their chic giraffe motif take you into the heart of the Savannah. Designed with great attention to detail, a high-quality golden patterned calf leather strap offers the perfect finish to this chronograph. The Mini Chic version is equipped with a rose gold (PVD) link bracelet that underlines its feminine elegance.

Strong and expressive: Three Diver Chic executions present themselves with refined leopard-print on the bezel. Two executions are striking and seductive with their deep black mother-of-pearl dial and their black ceramic bracelet, evoking fantasies of adventurous walks through the night. The Mini Chic rose gold (PVD) bracelet model with its contrasting leopard pattern bezel is accentuated by a softly shining white mother-of-pearl dial. Luxurious safari chic for both day and night time.

The Gc African Dream embraces all the characteristic details and quality criteria inherent in Gc timepieces. The watches feature a precision Swiss quartz movement, a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, screwed case back, screw-down crown with embossed Gc logo and a water resistance up to 100 meters (10 ATM). The high-quality materials guarantee Swiss quality and exceptional comfort.

These models are available in three sizes: As chronograph with a 38 mm case with three subdials, as a multifunction version with 34mm case and day and date window or the petite Gc Mini Chic with a 28mm case.

With the African Dream collection, Gc brings all the luxury of a safari to the heart of the city!
