Ferragamo Gancino Bracelet Watch Collection

Ferragamo Gancino Bracelet Watch Collection


by Adrian Herscovici  

Florentine Enchantment

Ferragamo WatchesA great cocktail watch is a piece of jewelry that should be at once classy and carefree; it should express both whimsy and sophisticated charm, and it should be unmistakably high society – in other words, everything that defines the great fashion house of Ferragamo.

The new Gancino Bracelet collection by Ferragamo is a series of cocktail watches that paints a dreamy picture of the Italian high-life, be it a summer party in a Medici garden or a black-tie evening affair in a palazzo along the banks of the Arno River.

The narrative begins with a dial arrangement of minimal detailing, a refined composition of delicate stick hands and small round indices at the quarters. The Ferragamo wordmark floats below 12 o’clock and the diminutive words “Swiss Made” indicate the watch’s origins. Such simplicity is, of course, intentional, and means not to distract from the beauty of the case and the exceptional bracelet.

Buy Ferragamo Gancino Bracelet Watch CollectionThere are two different styles of dial to revel in: a sunray pattern (in black or brown), or a rich enamel (in black, brown, orange or fuchsia). Those with the sunray pattern shimmer and change tone and texture in reflected light, and Ferragamo pairs these with its new tortoiseshell acetate bangles with inlays in one of three colors: grey, tobacco or fuchsia. The enamel dials, on the other hand, are rich, deep and uniform in color. Each enamel-dial model has a matching calf-leather bangle.

The case of the watch is in the shape of Ferragamo’s iconic emblem – the gancino – and comes in stainless steel or steel coated with gold IP. The case is a petite 25.5 mm in diameter, not including the gancino’s perpendicular ornament.

The simplistic beauty of the gancino requires no additional embellishment, although a profile view of the watch reveals further dimensionality in the case composition. The watch is entirely polished except for the caseback, which has a brushed finish, and every version of the Gancino Bracelet contains a Swiss made Ronda 751 quartz movement and features a scratch-resistant, anti-reflective sapphire crystal.

In its final act, the Gancino Bracelet reveals the design of its two-part bracelet: the first section is a bangle (in leather or tortoiseshell acetate) that transitions seamlessly into the second section, a stainless steel or gold IP link bracelet that locks by way of a small clasp (rather than a traditional prong buckle or folding clasp), the result of which is a fit more akin to a bracelet than a watch. The effect of these multifaceted bracelets raises the Gancino Bracelet into a category of glamor all on its own.

Buy Ferragamo Gancino Bracelet Watch CollectionWhether your intent is to sip Prosecco in a Tuscan piazza, or simply to elevate your favorite weekend ensemble, the Ferragamo Gancino Bracelet is an undeniably chic addition to your watch wardrobe – in fact, it may become the only watch you wear.

Fortis Terrestis Watch Collection

Fortis Terrestis Watch Collection - 19Fortis


by John Sealander  

If you thought that Fortis only made tool watches, the new Terrestis Collection will remind you of a time when Fortis made milestones.

Fortis WatchesMany of you know Fortis as the watchmaker who produces some of the world’s best aviator and space watches. What many forget is that Fortis gained their reputation as a manufacturer of superlative tool watches by astounding the world with a long series of horological milestones back in the 1930’s and 40’s.

In fact, as far back as 1926 Fortis amazed the world with the first practical self-winding automatic watch movement. They brought some of the first waterproof watches to the world with their popular Fortissimo models. These pioneers of the watchmaking art continued to innovate throughout the 1930’s and 40’s, bringing their technical expertise and classic style to a succession of groundbreaking timepieces.

Fortis pays homage to these iconic masterpieces with their new Terrestis Collection. Inspired by popular Fortis timepieces from the golden age of watchmaking, the Terrestis Collection combines classic style with state-of-the-art technology.

Exceptional Fortis movements are housed in slim new cases. The classic dials are protected with period-correct domed sapphire crystals. Many models feature authentic 1940’s Feuille hands, and some have observation style case backs that are bolted on using eight stainless steel screws. Each member of this impressive collection is a genuine work of art.

Tycoon Chronograph

The flagship of the Terrestis Collection is the impressive Tycoon Chronograph. This impressive watch pays homage to the groundbreaking Valjoux 72 manual-winding chronograph initially introduced by Fortis in 1942.

The Tycoon Chronograph combines authentic 1940’s styling with a modern 41 mm case and a state-of-the-art 47-Jewel Swiss made DD2020 automatic movement. Featuring period correct feuille hands, a blued sweep second hand, a bolt on observation caseback, and raised rose gold plated numbers and indices, this magnificent timepiece represents the Fortis heritage at its very best.

You have a choice of silver-opaline or anthracite black dials, each with a convenient date window at 6 o’clock. A Swiss made 21-Jewel, ETA 2892-2 automatic movement with a 42-hour power reserve, powers the Tycoon a.m and p.m.

With its elegant rose gold plated pencil hands and luxurious padded topstitched leather band, the exquisitely styled Orchestra is the perfect timepiece for a night out on the town. Like the Terrestis Hedonist, the Orchestra is also available in a solid 5N rose gold edition.

π (or Pi), the mathematical constant representing the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, is one of the most famous numbers in history. Since most wristwatches are circular, renowned artist and designer Rolf Sachs thought a watch face was the perfect place to explain and honor this famous and extremely important number. Produced in an extremely limited edition of only 150 pieces worldwide, the Terrestis 2π is a wearable work of art.

Featuring a white Superluminova dial inscribed with Sachs’ unique interpretation of Pi, this whimsical 42 mm three-hand configuration is a delight to wear. A 25-Jewel Swiss made F-2014 automatic movement with a 38-hour power reserve powers this artistic tribute to mathematics. An anti-reflective scratch resistant sapphire crystal protects the colorful dial while a second sapphire crystal on the back allows you to observe the precision Swiss made movement at work.

The impressive 2π is water resistant to 669 feet and can be equipped with your choice of a leather performance strap, leather dress strap, comfortable caoutchouc band, or black PVD coated stainless steel bracelet.

One of these timepieces belongs on your wrist

Like all Fortis timepieces, Terrestis models are engineered to last a lifetime and carry a two-year manufacturer’s warranty. If you’re fond of the iconic and historically significant watch styles from the 1930’s and 40’s, you’re going to love the Fortis Terrestis Collection.

To see how these exceptional timepieces looks like on your wrist, contact your authorized Fortis dealer immediately and ask to see the entire Terrestis Collection.
