Make a statement with Gc Homme and TechnoClass collections for the holiday gift giving season
United Arab Emirates: With the holidays and festive season fast approaching, Gc is offering the chance to make a statement to that special man in your life, with the Homme and TechnoClass collections this season. Gc Homme embodies the powerful fusion of dynamic modern style and sporty functionality, while Gc TechnoClass embodies the perfect combination of vintage and modern elements creating a contemporary look.
Gc Homme, a perfect timepiece for the sporty and fashion-conscious men, is an expressive timepiece that is perfectly adapted to an active lifestyle with its distinct clip crown protector and its water resistance up to 300 meters (30 ATM). The combination of the bold 44mm case with its imposing unidirectional turning bezel and the sophisticated structured dial makes the Gc Homme a real man’s watch with a dynamic modern expression.
The chronograph combines a sporty look with superior detailed technical features that make the timepiece a desirable companion for life in the fast lane. Equipped with a precise Swiss quartz chronograph movement, the Gc Homme offers an add and split function with a precision of up to 1/10th second. Elegantly arranged counters on the textured carbon fiber or striped pattern dial indicate 30 minutes at 3 o’clock, 12 hours at 6 o’clock and a small second counter at 9 o’clock. The distinct clip crown protector turns the setting of the time into a deliberate act and is a strong design statement at the same time.
Gc Homme is available in four dynamic executions. Fashion-savvy men set a statement with the style that features a brown rubber strap on a black (PVD) stainless steel case which gives the watch a powerful expression. Intriguing aspects are the rose gold (PVD) accents on bezel, indices and hands as well as the fine chiseled crown and pushers. Further variations include a model combining black (PVD) case, bezel, dial and bracelet with rose gold (PVD) elements in a way that is characteristic for Gc. A sporty version convinces with a black rubber strap and red highlights on one pusher and dial. An elegant appeal offers the style with gun metal (PVD) unidirectional turning bezel, grey dial and blue details on one pusher, dial and hands.
Gc TechnoClass is a sophisticated, elegant and technical highlight that is a great gift idea to delight men who aim to stand out in style. Its design is characterized by striking 44 mm diameter case with two distinctive parentheses on both sides. The plain bezel adds a classical touch and masterly draws the attention to the detailed structured dial, inspired by the cockpit instruments of traditional aviation. Equipped with a newly developed Swiss chronograph movement, which Gc is one of the first Swiss brands to utilize commercially, the TechnoClass embodies the perfect combination of vintage and modern elements creating a contemporary look.
The new high-precision Swiss quartz movement R3540D allows for the realization of the innovative dial design with a sporty aviator appeal and a peak performance functional reliability. The timepiece offers an add and split function granting a time measuring with a precision of up to 1/10th second. The counters – decorated with sunray pattern – are positioned at 6 o’clock (seconds), 9 o’clock (30 minutes) and 12 o’clock (10 hours). A large date window ranges from 2 to 4 o’clock. The SuperLuminova® coated indices and hands provide excellent readability while the inner tachymeter scale emphasizes the dynamic character of the watch. Chiseled pushers add to the distinctive vintage style of the watch. Elegant croco-embossed leather straps or a steel link bracelet complete the detailed design of the masculine Gc TechnoClass. It is equipped with a sapphire crystal glass, screw-down crown, screw-in case back and is water-resistant up to 100 meters (10 ATM).
Gc TechnoClass is available in three executions, all with solid stainless steel cases combined with different colour accents. Characteristic for Gc is the colour combination of rose and black with rose gold PVD details on the dial, bezel and pushers set off by a black dial and a corresponding black croco-embossed leather strap. For a truly vintage appeal, the execution with a white dial and blue accentuated hands is completed by a brown leather strap. Finally, for a more contemporary feel, the bold chic combination of a modern grey dial with blue accents and a black strap, makes up the trio of quality timepieces that will not go unnoticed.
As inherent in all Gc timepieces, these timepieces offer the characteristic attention to detail in design and quality. Both collections are designed with scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, a screw-down crown with embossed Gc logo as well as a screwed case back. Gc Homme and Gc TechnoClass collections are available at Gc boutiques and selected Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons stores across the UAE.
