A modern reinterpretation of the traditional buckle inspires a new line of Ferragamo timepieces and eyewear.

Ferragamo WatchesThe humble buckle has always played an important role in Salvatore Ferragamo’s history. The celebrated shoemaker often incorporated stylish buckles into the designs of his iconic shoes. These stylized buckles, which often took the shape of Ferragamo’s trademark Gancino hook, quickly became associated with the brand. As the brand grew, these familiar buckles began to appear on purses, belts and other fashion accessories.

This excitingly original collection of fashion forward eyewear and watches takes the buckle beyond its role as a clasp on shoes, belts, and purses, and turns it into a pure esthetic symbol.

These distinctive 37 mm watches take their name from a stylized buckle shaped case that was derived from the iconic Ferragamo Gancino. This Gancino shape has been refined to become a beautiful cloche shaped buckle that mimics the form of Ferragamo Buckle Collection eye wear. The bezel is even available in tortoiseshell acetate, to match the frames of the glasses.

The elegant two-hand configuration features an asymmetrical dial in champagne, silver, dark brown or black with intricate guilloché finishing and four genuine diamonds as indices. The winding crown has been moved to the 12 o’clock position at the top of the buckle shaped stainless steel case for dramatic effect, and the unique asymmetrical lugs have been fitted with a premium vegetable-tanned calfskin strap, which comes in 6 different variations, including tobacco, beige, orange, brown, fuchsia and black; all with contrasting top-stitching.
