GV2 Powerball Watch Collection


by Adrian Herscovici  

An Original Racer that is Out of This World

GV2 WatchesThe Powerball by GV2 is among the most distinctive watches on the market in any category – nothing else looks quite like it. The design combines two complementary motifs within a stadium-shape case to achieve a look that is part science fiction, part motor speedway.

One unmistakable emphasis of Powerball watches is racing sport: an axis bridge between 9 and 3 looks like a vintage race car steering wheel and the small seconds hand would surely suit the dial of a car’s tachometer or speedometer. In addition, the Powerball rubber strap features a distinctive tire-tread pattern.

The second theme is circles – hence the name Powerball – which appear all throughout the design of the watch and there are few straight lines or severe edges. It begins with the round 45 mm case and bezel. The first tier in from the bezel is a flange with globular markers. Next is the chapter ring, which has numerals at 05, 25, 35 and 55 along with circular minute markers. Moving into the central area of the dial, two date wheels are visible below the cutaway dial screen. The small seconds register is also round, as are the individual links that form the hour and minute hands.

As such, these elements are all cleverly combined, but the Powerball has an additional unifying quality – multi-dimensionality. The aforementioned layering of the dial creates a stadium effect with tiers and a declining slope towards center. This is echoed in the case design, which from its profile has the appearance of a stadium’s exterior. Not only does this case styling give the watch an original look, it means that a smaller portion of the case actually touches the wearer’s wrist, making for a more comfortable fit. The stadium shape also creates a natural projection of the fluted crown, which makes it easy to grasp for quick adjustments.

Several models of the Powerball are available. Case options are stainless steel, black PVD and one model in rose gold IP. Dials variants include models with yellow accents, blue accents and one with brown accents (exclusive to the rose gold version). Powerball watches use Swiss quartz movements, have solid casebacks and are water resistant to 165 feet.

The Powerball rubber strap is available in black, blue, red, yellow or brown. The adjustable bracelet, which features removable screw links (superior to pin links), comes in stainless steel or black PVD. Both the strap and bracelet open and close by way of a high-grade, double-folding deployant clasp.

With so many details in its makeup, the GV2 Powerball is a watch worth staring at, and will undoubtedly garner some extra attention. Its multidimensional case and intriguing dial design are appealing to anyone who wants a watch that stands out for being original. This colorful and classy sport watch makes a great addition to any watch collection. Contact an authorized GV2 dealer today and pick your favorite.
