Limited Edition Gevril Park Watch Collection

Gevril Park Watch Collection

Absolute Gevril

Gevril WatchesMost collectors are familiar with the Gevril tradition of crafting sophisticated, Swiss made gentlemen’s watches with New York City themes. These include classics such as the ultra-elegant Avenue of Americas and sporty Tribeca chronograph. The new Gevril Park collection maintains this longstanding custom, named after Park Avenue – one of New York City’s iconic grand boulevards – which reaches from Union Square in lower Manhattan and stretches north up the city’s east side, past Central Park, through Harlem and beyond.

Like their Park Avenue namesake, Park timepieces have great range – they are refined dress watches that also wear well in more informal scenarios. This flexibility comes down to strap and bracelet options; when mounted on alligator-patterned leather straps, Gevril Park watches are as dressy as can be; but mount them on polished beaded bracelets, and they’re ready for an even wider array of settings and activities.

The dial has numerous enduring elements to admire, all of which speak to the art of fine watchmaking. The central area has a distinguished circular guilloche-style engraving, while the surrounding brushed ring provides a strong contrasting base for the large black Roman numerals.

At the outer edge of the dial, the seconds track is set off by delicate scalloped ridges. And the hands – pomme style blued steel – are abundantly complementary to the dial’s old-world aesthetics. The Park’s sole complication is a date display, which appears in a neatly framed aperture at 3 o’clock.

The mid-size 39 mm polished case is appropriate for a dress watch and still large enough to meet contemporary case trends. The design is symmetrical and unembellished, as not to distract the eye away from the details of the dial. The lugs extend and sharply tilt to match the end links of the bracelet and also to create a clean line for the strap.

A Gevril logo is embossed on the fluted screw-down crown. Even more detail appears on the Park’s caseback, which features an engraving of a Park Avenue panorama in addition to the text “Individually Swiss Handcrafted” and the watch’s limited edition number (each variation in the Park collection is one of 500).

There are three case-and-dial variations. The first is a silver dial with a stainless steel case; the second is a black dial with a stainless steel case; and the third is a silver dial with yellow gold IP stainless steel case. The silver- and black-dial models come mounted on a choice of the aforementioned stainless steel beaded bracelet with a double-folding deployant clasp, or on a black alligator-pattern leather strap with deployant folding clasp.

Models with yellow gold IP stainless steel cases have silver dials and the option of a yellow gold IP stainless steel bracelet or brown alligator-pattern leather strap. Gold IP case versions also feature matching gold IP hands.

For Gevril, quality components are second to none: antireflective sapphire crystal is standard on every Park model, as is the robust Swiss Ronda 715 quartz movement. Gevril Park timepieces are smart-looking and well suited to formal occasions or more dress-down affairs, and represent another compelling example of the ongoing affiliation between Gevril watches and the City of New York.
