This new design from Gevril was inspired by one of the oldest streets in America.
Manhattan’s historic Washington Street first appeared on maps as early as 1797. With spectacular views of Manhattan Bridge and proximity to the famous Fulton Fish Market, the World Trade Center, and the innovative High Line linear park, the street has long been a focal point of activity in Lower Manhattan. To celebrate this historic area, Gevril created a timepiece worthy of the Washington name.
The 47 mm Gevril Washington joins the prestigious Gevril New York collection with a classically inspired design featuring elegant Roman numbers and graceful blued Breguet hands. A solid brass dial is decorated with a detailed engraving of modern day Washington Street with the Manhattan Bridge in the distance.
An outline of the Manhattan Bridge also adorns the second hand. Completing the inspired design is a sixty-minute scale on the chapter ring and a clever porthole at 6 o’clock that provides an enlarged view of the convenient date window.
This beautifully detailed three-hand configuration is powered by a precision Swiss made Ruben & Sons MD3G automatic mechanical movement and is water resistant to 169 feet. An anti-reflective, scratch resistant sapphire crystal protects the beautiful dial and like all Gevril timepieces, a two-year manufacturer’s warranty protects your investment.
This exciting new timepiece is available in eight distinctive editions, including versions in stainless steel, IP rose gold, and IP yellow gold. Choose between a silver or black dial that can be fitted with a premium black or brown leather strap.
Like all Gevril timepieces, the production of the Gevril Washington will be strictly limited. If you would like to be one of the lucky few fortunate enough to wear this superbly crafted Swiss made timepiece, contact your authorized Gevril dealer immediately and ask to see the entire Washington Street Collection.
Alberto Ascari’s reputation for precision and accuracy helped make him one of the greatest racing drivers of all time. The same attributes help define the superlative Gevril timepiece created in his honor.
Alberto Ascari is a racing legend. This multitalented Italian driver was a two-time Formula One World Champion with back-to-back titles in 1952 and 1953. He also won the legendary Mille Miglia open road endurance race in 1954 and even competed in the Indianapolis 500.
After his untimely death in 1955, Ascari was posthumously inducted into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame and even had a street in Rome named in his honor. It is no surprise that this legendary driver became the inspiration for a unique limited edition timepiece that celebrates his racing heritage.
A masterpiece of form and function
The 48 mm Gevril Alberto Ascari is a masterpiece of Italian design and Swiss watchmaking expertise. The watch is powered by a precision Swiss made MD3G automatic mechanical movement by Ruben & Sons, the atelier of Alberto’s grandson Massimo Ascari. The movement is housed in a 316L stainless steel case. This boldly masculine timepiece features a stunning racing inspired dial that emulates the perforated brake discs found in Alberto Ascari’s Ferrari racecar.
The rotor powering this superb timepiece was inspired by a vintage Ferrari steering wheel and can be viewed through a scratch resistant sapphire exhibition back. The racing theme continues on the side of the stainless steel case with a series of ribs that are reminiscent of a racing engine’s cylinder head.
These authentic racing elements have been masterfully combined to create a unique tribute to one of the world’s legendary drivers.
Strictly limited to 500 pieces worldwide, the Gevril Alberto Ascari Limited Edition Timepiece comes in a special limited edition box, complete with a certificate of authenticity and a tribute booklet filled with images from Alberto Ascari’s storied career. Like all Gevril timepieces, the Alberto Ascari Limited Edition carries a two-year manufacturer’s warranty.

Much of the New York skyline was erected during the Roaring Twenties, and with that boom came a multitude of districts and businesses to support the prospering economy. One district, located in the city’s Lower West Side, was known as Radio Row; it comprised several blocks of mostly electronics stores with Cortlandt Street at its epicenter.
For 40 years Radio Row was the place for New Yorkers to source parts for radios and later televisions. Most of Radio Row was eventually razed in the mid-’60s to make way for the World Trade Center. Now however, the once-great thoroughfare is the subject of a new Gevril timepiece – the Cortland.
The Cortland is another in Gevril’s line of dressy men’s watches, a complicated version of the stylish Gevril Park, with which it shares its overall appearance and fundamental design qualities. Similarities include the 39 mm stainless steel case with screw-down crown and the highly detailed dial; specifically, the guilloche-style engraving, a seconds track bordered with scalloped edges and a date window at 3 o’clock.
The large, legible Roman numerals and pomme tipped hands swoop up years of history and celebrate the golden age of watchmaking. As do the watch’s two additional complications: a 24-hour sub-dial that records a second time zone, and a moon-phase register to track the changing position of the moon.
There are two dial colors: silver or black. Black-dial models are paired with silver-color hands while the silver-dial models employ silver or gold IP hands. The case and bezel are both polished stainless steel, as is the bracelet. And there is a variation of the case and bracelet in yellow gold IP stainless steel.
Another highlight of the Cortland is the case back: it features an engraving of a 1908 scene along Cortlandt Street, with the Glen Island Hotel in the foreground and the Singer Building in the distance (the highest building in the world at the time). The engraving also indicates the watch’s limited edition number – each variation is one in a series of 500.
Versions of the watch in yellow gold IP come mounted on matching gold IP stainless steel beaded bracelets with double-folding deployant clasps, or on brown alligator-pattern leather straps with deployant folding clasps. Non-gold models employ polished stainless steel bracelets and black alligator-pattern leather straps. The variety allows the wearer the option of a more formal pairing on leather, or a versatile sport option on steel.
In recognition of Cortlandt Street’s place in the lore of electronic-age Americana, the Gevril Cortland is powered by a state-of-the-art electronic Swiss quartz movement. Choose your favorite Cortland model today from an authorized Gevril watch dealer and hook into your own slice of New York history.
Most 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. Contact an authorized Gevril watch dealer for more information.
Don’t miss this opportunity to get a new Gevril Tribeca or Avenue of Americas Sport at an amazing price.
Mark your calendars now! Whenever Gevril offers some of their most popular timepieces on Evine (formerly ShopHQ), they don’t last long. On April 13, this highly anticipated Evine event, hosted by Steven Jay, will feature two of Gevril’s most popular new timepieces, the Tribeca and Avenue of Americas Sport.
You can join the fun on the Evine TV channel or watch the event streaming live online. Either way, this is the best chance you’ll have this year to get an unbelievable deal on some of Gevril’s most desirable luxury timepieces and see them close up.
The last time Gevril timepieces were featured on Evine, they sold out quickly. You’ll definitely want to be among the first callers to take advantage of the amazing Tribeca and Avenue of Americas Sport timepieces that Steven Jay will be offering on the show.
The impressive new Tribeca Chronograph, based on a famous triple register design from the 60’s and 70’s, features a 51 jewel automatic movement that pairs a high quality ETA 2824 movement with a Dubois & Dépraz 2020 chronograph module. This limited edition chronograph is ready to time virtually any event with a free running small seconds display along with 30-minute and twelve hour totalizers. There is a convenient tachymeter scale engraved on the bezel and two conveniently placed screw down pushers to control the timing functions.
The popular new Avenue of Americas Sport is the latest addition to Gevril’s signature timepiece line. Until now, the Avenue of Americas has primarily been worn as a dress watch. The new Sport Collection gives the classic rectangular case a more casual appearance with broad arrow shaped hands and a unique circular date display that designates the date using a small two-pronged fork at 4 o’clock secured with a hexagonal screw. The IP black or gunmetal stainless steel case and bright red sweep second hand further enhance the sporty appearance of this versatile limited edition timepiece.
Don’t miss this exclusive Gevril event, airing on Evine Monday evening, April 13 starting 8pm EST (5pm PST), both on TV and streaming live online. Steven Jay will have a great selection of Tribeca and Avenue of Americas Sport watches available, but due to the popularity of these models, they are expected to sell fast.
If you’d like to see a Gevril Tribeca or Avenue of Americas Sport on your wrist this Spring, please make time to join Steven Jay on April 13.
Most people with an eye for fine watches are familiar with Gevril’s Avenue of Americas collection, the jewel in the brand’s crown since 2001. Like other Gevril collections, these watches are named after a famous New York landmark, in this case a prominent lower Manhattan thoroughfare called Avenue of the Americas, also known as Sixth Avenue.
Until now the Avenue of Americas lineup consisted primarily of highly refined dress watches. This year, however, Gevril is adding a slightly more casual version with the introduction of the men’s Avenue of Americas Sport. Even at a distance the overall look of the watch remains unmistakable, with a rectangular curved case measuring 44 x 34 mm, large scripted numerals and art deco style.
Two variations comprise the Avenue of Americas Sport collection, each a limited edition release of 500 pieces worldwide. The first has an IP black stainless steel case; the second has an IP “gun metal” stainless steel case.
The big difference in the appearance of the Avenue of Americas Sport versus other Avenue of Americas watches is the design of the dial. Unlike previous editions that have numeral markers at every hour, the Sport model has numerals only at 12 and 6 o’clock. The remaining hour markers are represented by luminous white bars, proportional to the numerals and stemming from the dial’s circular core. An open date wheel, exposed in four sections, is the focal point. The current date is marked at 4 o’clock by a small two-prong fork affixed by way of a hexagonal screw, one of four such screws connecting the center plate above the date wheel. At the center of this plate is an engraved pattern featuring a circular web, which complements the engraved concentric ring pattern on the outer part of the dial.
The hour and minute hands are also much sportier, with wide skeletonized bodies and large luminous triangular tips that are easy to read, day or night. A red sweeping seconds hand adds a burst of color on the otherwise tonal palette.
The introduction of the Sport collection means there is now an alternative within the Avenue of Americas lineup for those who want to own a less formal version of this classic timepiece. The look is quintessential Avenue of Americas, including familiar components such as the padded leather calfskin strap with tang buckle, anti-reflective sapphire crystal and Swiss made automatic movement visible through an exhibition caseback. But the dial design completely changes its personality and adds to its versatility, making it a watch that many collectors will appreciate and want to own.
