Here’s a handsome chap from Gevril officially called the Gevril 2405L Men’s Gramercy Automatic Yellow Gold Brown Leather Watch. If you’re familiar with Gevril, you’ll know that every model in the line is named after the Big Apple. What better city to inspire a watch’s aesthetics and spirit.
The Gevril 2405L Gramercy takes its name from the area in Manhattan referred to as Gramercy Park because of the 2-acre park that defines the neighborhood. Originally enclosed in 1833, actual construction of the surrounding homes on the lots didn’t begin until the 1840’s. An interesting fact is that it’s the only private park in New York City reserved for people owning property surrounding the park. They pay an annual fee to get a key that unlocks the environs inside. The general public isn’t allowed in; however, they can gaze upon the beauty as they jog or walk on the sidewalk that surrounds the park—and it is a popular place to find joggers and strollers.

Gevril made a good choice giving the Men’s Gramercy Automatic Yellow Gold an affiliation with the exclusive park because indeed the watch has an old world rich and upscale feel. The white watch dial features a regulator configuration. A regulator setup separates out the hours, minutes and seconds onto separate indicators. This configuration was first used at the end of the 17th century to give watchmakers an accurate reference to regulate their watches. Minutes took center stage as the most important element, since at the time, technology didn’t allow for accuracy down to the seconds. That’s why the minutes are the largest indication going around the outside of the dial and the easiest to read at a glance.
In a 40 mm 18K gold round case with faceted lugs, the Gevril 2405L Gramercy separates the hours indicator at 12 o’clock balanced by the seconds indication at 6 o’clock. As described above, the timepiece follows the historical layout of the regulator configuration with the minutes hand the largest feature as it circles the dial. Because of the advancement of watch technology, you can be assured that the Gramercy will be within seconds of accuracy. As a bonus, you can view the automatic movement ticking away through the exhibition back. Finishing off the look is a brown calfskin strap with a gold buckle that beautifully complements the gold case.
