Historic Gevril Madison Watch Collection

Taxi Cabs on Madison Avenue, 1900


by Adrian Herscovici  

Gevril WatchesThe grandeur of New York’s Madison Avenue is captured in a 1995 watch release from Gevril – a watch known simply as the Madison. Madison Avenue runs south-north through the heart of Manhattan. It originates from Madison Square Park at 23rd Street – named after the fourth U.S. president, James Madison – and flows northbound all the way up to 135th Street where it merges with the on-ramp to the Madison Avenue Bridge.

Beginning in the 1920s, Madison Avenue became synonymous with the American advertising industry, which flourished in the ’50s and ’60s. Many recognize the name as the setting for the hit television series Mad Men, which first aired in 2007. Today Madison Ave. is a world-class shopping destination with upscale boutiques that house many of the biggest names in fashion and luxury goods, including several watch boutiques.

Like the glory days of the ad industry, the Gevril Madison watch weaves its own narrative; this is a story of refinement and sophistication that is worthy of the grand Gotham thoroughfare.

Madison watches were encased in one of two materials: stainless steel or 18 kt. yellow gold. Each case was 39 mm, large enough to showcase the superb dial work but small enough to stay within the limits of discernment. A polished bezel with a tiered rim gave way to a brushed case side with a vertical grain, which met another polished rim at the caseback.

Inside the caseback rim, a coined pattern bordered the perimeter. Engravings denoted particular details including the reference number and the limited edition number: in the Gevril tradition, the stainless steel model was a series of 500 and the gold a series of 100. Sapphire crystal, front and back, provided durable scratch resistance. The large crystal on the caseback also allowed for an ample view of the Swiss made ETA 2895 automatic movement, which featured a rotor stamped with the Gevril signature.

The remarkable case, however, was but a backdrop for the extraordinary dial, which featured a silvered finish and guilloché engraving. This fine decoration appears in the primary dial space, and within the small seconds sub-dial, and at the very edge of the outer dial. The applied serifed Roman numerals and pomme hands (generally referred to as Breguet hands) are the perfect complement. On the steel version, the hands are blue and the Romans are black; on the gold version both the hands and numerals are gold. The date window featuring beveled edges is another pleasing detail.

The gold version of the watch came paired with a brown crocodile leather strap and matching 18 kt. gold buckle. The stainless steel version included a stainless steel bracelet as well as an optional brown crocodile leather strap with a folding clasp.

“Power to influence” was the catchphrase from the 1995 catalog entry for the Madison watch. The phrase, in essence, was also the hallmark of the ad industry during its 20th century boom. Gevril’s Madison watch was designed for the same type of self-assured innovators who built Madison Avenue, and it demonstrated the type of detailed work that remains a pillar of Gevril watch design to this day.

Note: Several watches from the Madison collection were held from distribution at the time of the original release and are available today, NOS (new old stock), at select authorized online retailers. Contact us for more information.

Historic Gevril Tribeca Watch Collection

Old Washington Market in Tribeca


by Adrian Herscovici  

Gevril WatchesFans of Gevril watches know of the company’s penchant for naming its watch collections after famous or important New York City neighborhoods and landmarks. These include the brand’s signature Avenue of Americas collection and the current Columbus Circle and Gramercy collections. Several other similarly themed collections have appeared in the Gevril lineup over the years, collections long sold out or discontinued. One of these is the Tribeca, released in 1990.

Tribeca is an area in Lower Manhattan. The name is an acronym taken from the words Triangle Below Canal (Street). The area (actually a trapezoid) evolved in the 20th century from an industrial center to an artist community to what it is today: an upscale residential neighborhood, among the most affluent ZIP codes in the entire city and home to numerous celebrities and other notable figures.

The Tribeca watch collection aspired to celebrate the notion of “seizing the moment and the bounties of life,” a phrase that appeared in the original catalog entry. Indeed, the Tribeca chronograph was abundantly detailed. The overall design pays homage to a famed chronograph style of the ’60s and ’70s with its triple registers, square-foot indexes and arrow-tip chronograph hand. The design just works: it is contrasting and capacious with a down-to-earth simplicity that is admired by watch enthusiasts to this day.

In addition to the famous black-on-white “panda” style dial, the Tribeca dial also appeared in a white-on-black variation, as well as a black-on-champagne and its reverse, champagne-on-black. Like other Gevril collections, the Tribeca was produced in a limited edition of just 500 watches per steel variant and 100 watches per gold variant, each individually numbered on the dial. Covering the dials were hesalite (acrylic) crystals, softer than sapphire, but domed and rich in vintage charm.

There were two variations of the case: one in stainless steel, the other in 18 kt. gold. The cases were 37 mm. The bezels were either black enamel or polished stainless steel and featured tachymeter scales. Tribeca watches had solid casebacks and fluted screw-down pushers and crowns, which added to their 330 feet of water resistance. All of the cases featured “holed” lugs, meaning the holes for the spring bars were drilled all the way through the lugs and were visible from the outside. Holed lugs added desirable character to the watches and, on a practical level, made it easier to change the straps or bracelets.

The Tribeca models with white-and-black dial combinations came on stainless steel integrated bracelets while the gold-and-black versions were offered on brown crocodile straps with 18 kt. gold buckles. Inside, the Tribeca housed a 51 jewel automatic movement made up of an ETA 2824 with a Dubois & Dépraz 2020 chronograph module.

Gevril’s Tribeca is as an excellent example of the brand’s commitment to quality and craftsmanship, and one of its most compelling offerings of the 1990s with an effortless and composed design that will be valued for many years to come. If you are interested in picking one up, check the auction sites – they do occasionally come up. The Tribeca would make an excellent addition to any watch collection.

New GV2 Aurora Watch Collection

Artist's Conception of the Aurora Hypersonic Jet


by Adrian Herscovici  

GV2’s Latest – A Covert Operator

GV2 WatchesClandestine military projects are not unusual, especially when they concern technological advancements in weaponry and intelligence: countries, after all, want to keep their plans secret, both to surprise and surpass the capabilities of competing nations.

The fabled Aurora project is one such military undertaking. Aurora is the name of a reconnaissance aircraft (or perhaps the larger project surrounding the plane’s construction), which the United States allegedly began developing in the 1980s. Plenty of circumstantial evidence exists to support the reality of Aurora, but nothing conclusive – it remains wrapped in a shroud of mystery, which undoubtedly was the intention all along.

GV2 patterns its new men’s Aurora watch collection on this legendary aircraft. The watch captures the essence of the phantom plane with its stealthy black-on-black exterior. Each of the watches is cast in a sizeable 45 mm, 316L stainless steel case and coated with black IP; the solid caseback features an engraving of the aircraft based on a familiar conceptualization.

Click to Enlarge Image Click to Enlarge Image Click to Enlarge Image

In keeping with the spectral theme, the central area of the Aurora’s black dial includes a semitransparent screen; beneath the screen, the entire bilingual (English and German) day wheel and the numerical date wheel are visible. The current day and date appear in apertures on the left and right sides of the dial, and the GV2 logo is printed directly onto the crystal below 12 o’clock. The hands have white luminous tips and the hour indexes are silver, allowing the dial to fly under the radar without being awkwardly invisible.

The notable difference between the watches in the collection is the color of the aluminum unidirectional bezels. For the complete black-on-black look, opt for the model with the black bezel. There is also a silver-color bezel for those who prefer something tonal and bright, and for those looking for a splash of color there are bezels in red, blue, orange or green. On the colored bezel models, the minute indexes at the outer rim of the dial match the color of the bezel; on the models with black and silver bezels, these indexes are silver.

A black silicone strap comes mounted on every model. It features two spiny vertebrae at each lug end and levels out towards the inscribed buckle. Aurora watches are Swiss made and contain Ronda 517 Swiss quartz movements. Each utilizes an anti reflective sapphire crystal and is water resistant to 330 feet. Each variation is manufactured in a limited edition and comes in a special presentation box.

Given the advancements in technology between the ’80s and today, there is every reason to believe that the Aurora aircraft – or its equivalent – exists, and the military is no less determined to keep it a secret. But adding one of these stealthy instruments to your watch collection is completely in reach: the only thing that won’t go undetected is your sense of style. Contact an authorized GV2 dealer today and pick your favorite.

Colors of Fall 2014 Women’s Fashion and Watches

Prada and DVF Fall 2014 Women's Fashion Runway Shows

by Meehna Goldsmith  

Fashion designers are like artists, using a palette of colors and textures in creation of collections for the seasons. Fall is on its way into town, and if you’re expecting oranges, forget it. Autumn is wearing a whimsical wardrobe of hues that are quite surprising and romantic. Look to dress yourself up in fun colors including neutrals, brights and metallics. Fashion ensembles also include accessories, such as jewels and watches, that get the same fanciful and artistic treatment.

Sangria

Sangria isn’t just a drink you order when you feel like a Spanish cocktail. It’s a color Elie Saab rocked on the runway in this pantsuit with a peplum flair matched with shoes highlighted in the same color. Why not finish off the look with the matching Ferragamo Gancino watch wrapped around your wrist? In a classic Ferragamo Gancino IP gold case, it features a Gancino-patterned dial and leather strap, both in the sangria hue.

Elie Saab Ferragamo Gancino
Elie Saab Ferragamo FP5030013 Gancino

Almond

Neutral colors are one of the names of the game to be ready for the brisk autumn air. Valentino presented this gorgeous sleeveless floor length embroidered gown. It’s both elegant and bold with the careful placement of the embroidery on the see-through top. Neutrals can be wild too, as seen in this spicy and glamorous Glam Rock GR10521D Miami Python timepiece. Glittering with diamonds, the leather python-patterned strap would give some contrasting pizzazz to this look.

Mustard

Carven proved mustard is a versatile color not just meant for a condiment. This matching skirt and top sports a below the knee look. It manages to avoid being too stuffy by embellishing with zippers and a leopard pattern on the collar and shirt pockets. The Hush Puppies Orbz complements the design gracefully. In a stainless steel round case, the silver dial has golden numerals and a leather strap in just the right color to fit fall.

Cognac

Givenchy glammed up this cognac colored dress with the same color fur collar. Not one but two belts give the piece dimension. One at the waist matches the dress, while the other swiveling at the hips contrasts in a mocha color. Ferragamo has the perfect accessory with the Ferragamo Buckle. Here again the famous Gancino mark, in a different style, would elevate an outfit with its IP gold Gancino-shaped case and lush patterned brown dial that finishes off with a matching brown strap.

Mauve

Elie Saab shows his penchant for the peplum again with another pantsuit, this time in the dusky and romantic mauve color. A similar color fur stole with contrasting black color on the shoulders drapes lushly around the model’s shoulders, adding both tone and textural contrast. Johan Eric obviously wasn’t designing for Elie Saab, but the brand could have been. The Johan Eric JE2100-09-001.9 Herlev Slim watch looks like it was made to go with this ensemble. From its identical colored strap, diamond-enhanced dial and its slim figure, the watch is the sweet icing on the cake.

Cranberry

Sangria isn’t the only red available in this season’s oeuvre. Versace shows its rock-n-roll edge in this meshed and sequined fringe dress that ties together formal and dance club. It could be easily paired with this yummy furry coat, which switches environments with as much ease. Versace has the answer for your watch too. The cranberry Versace Vanity shows two looks with a dial that combines Roman numerals with a studded bezel. Dial color matches the strap, on which the famed Medusa head appears on two studs.

Aurora Red

Another great accompaniment option is the red Glam Rock Bal Harbour. Adding some sport to the glamour element, this chronograph comes in an IP gold case with Roman numeral white dial. The punchy red strap caps the argument for autumn.

Royal Blue

Ferragamo calls on Royal blue in this slightly mysterious turtleneck dress with accenting belt. The outfit is ready to transition from indoors to out paired with a long cape-like jacket that flows to the knees. Dip into Ferragamo’s accessory treasure chest to accessorize with the Ferragamo FG3040014 Gancino Deco. Styling a similar colored blue geometric dial with Arabic and diamond-studded baton numerals, the watch is a winner with its matching strap studded with the famed Gancino.

Peacock Blue

Versace goes full on peacock blue here in sporty suede pants featuring the Medusa studs paired with a turtleneck. Hitting at the waist, the similar colored furry coat provides a dressy element. Remember this is Versace so the coat still retains that rebellious touch. All that’s left to do is accessorize the wrist with a JOWISSA AJ2.011.M Roma Colori. Here the black hour indexes set against the white dial backdrop act as the bezel. That blue strap is right on target to complete the fashion forward fall look.

It may be shifting from summer to autumn and outside, and it may be less shiny and bright, but dressing and accessorizing will make for a fall season awash in artistic color.

Gevril Columbus Circle Watch Collection

Columbus Circle in 1905


by Meehna Goldsmith  

Gevril WatchesGevril watch collections take their inspiration from New York City and its numerous famous locales and areas, such as the Avenue of the Americas, Times Square and Columbus Circle.

One of the most recognized places in Manhattan, Columbus Circle, located at W. 59th Street and Broadway is a roundabout outside Merchant’s Gate that marks the southern reaches of Central Park. Many will recognize it from the Columbus monument by Italian sculptor Gaetano Russo erected in 1892 in honor of the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus arriving in America. The Gevril Columbus Circle Collection pays tribute to this essential hub of activity in Manhattan.

Just as the builder of the actual Columbus Circle William P. Eno, an innovator in road safety and traffic control, constructed the roundabout for functionality and ease of use, so did Gevril with the Columbus Circle collection. The dial actually resembles a roundabout with its concentric circle layout of complications.

Moving from the outside, the Columbus Circle features a day, date and astrological symbol that corresponds to the day of the week. Indicators for the day and date are rather unique and interesting. A diamond shape moves around the dial to signify the day while two markers highlight the correct date of the exposed date ring at 12 o’clock. Lume filled hands track time around baton markers on the outer ring.

The Gevril Columbus Circle Collection comes in a 45 mm stainless steel case with a crown engraved with the Gevril logo. There are seven different model options limited either to 150 or 250 that include case finishes in IP gold, black PVD and stainless steel, and dials in black and silver. All come with a handcrafted leather strap with crocodile pattern.

Powering the Gevril Columbus Circle collection is a robust Swiss automatic movement, which can be glimpsed through a porthole in the caseback engraved with a picturesque scene of streetcars moving through Columbus Circle at the turn of the century.

The Gevril Columbus Circle collection gives a great new spin to the day/date watch. Like its namesake, it leaves a lasting impression. Purchase your Gevril watch from an authorized Gevril dealer.

Gevril Avenue of Americas Serenade Watch Collection


by Meehna Goldsmith  

Gevril WatchesA watch is an accessory that reflects personal style and makes an immediate statement without you saying a word. For the most part, watch brands take a conservative route and adhere closely to similar designs. Gevril is a brand that deliberately goes against the grain. Samuel Friedmann, who owns the historic brand, even says that Gevril watches aren’t for everyone. They are a unique and exclusive offering, only producing a mere six thousand pieces a year.

The rectangle-shaped Gevril Avenue of the Americas Serenade collection for men exhibits this attitude with a two-time zone complication, one of the most functional in modern life. In today’s global interaction we are constantly juggling contacting people in different parts of the world or country for personal or business reasons. This watch allows you to immediately know at a glance what time it is in the second city of your choice.

Gevril 5150R Avenue of Americas Serenade

Click to Enlarge Image

The beveled dial of the Avenue of the Americas Serenade collection is clean and sleek. It uses an artistic skeletonized hand co-axial to the hours and minutes hands to unobtrusively indicate the second time zone. What elevates these watches to the next level in functionality is the inclusion of not one but two day/night indicators for each time zone, which are located at 9 o’clock for the second time zone and 3 o’clock for the first time zone. A white color within the circular aperture indicates “am” while black is for “pm”. This way there isn’t any confusion about whether it’s midnight or lunchtime in wherever you are or are looking to be. A convenient date window resides at 6 o’clock and is linked to local time.

The Avenue of the Americas dial is not only clever in its functional design but luxuriates in the details. Stylized and hand painted Arabic numerals ring the perimeter of the dial set against a lovely guilloché pattern, while the minutes track rings a sunken rectangular shape surrounded by the numerals, adding depth and texture.

In a 34×44 case based on one found in the Gevril archives, the Avenue of the Americas Serenade collection combines retro styling with modern flourishes on the dial to make it not only current but also timeless. The pusher at 10 o’clock controls the second time zone, making adjustment quick and easy.

All Gevril timepieces are Swiss made using the highest quality of materials. Powered by a Swiss automatic movement with an engraved rotor, which can be viewed through the sapphire crystal back, the Avenue of the Americas Serenade collection comes in two case metals with limited editions of 50 pieces in stainless steel and 18K gold and 50 pieces in 18K white gold.

For the man who dares to pick something different from the norm to express himself, the Gevril Avenue of the Americas Serenade provides a unique option that isn’t found on every wrist. Just like every man, the Gevril Avenue of the Americas Serenade has its own identity. Purchase your Gevril watch from an authorized Gevril dealer.

GV2 Fiamme Watch Collection


by Adrian Herscovici  

Introducing Another Side of GV2

GV2 WatchesGV2 is well known for its large and sturdy Swiss made sport watches that come in a variety of distinctive designs. The introduction of the GV2 Fiamme collection reveals another side of the brand: Fiamme watches maintain the sporty GV2 persona but add renewed suavity and elegance to the men’s side of the brand’s lineup.

Buy GV2 Fiamme Watch CollectionFiamme is the Italian word for flames, and in geology fiamme are flame-like shapes usually found in various types of volcanic rock. In the instance of Fiamme watches, however, the name echoes an attitude rather than an obvious parallel – Fiamme watches, while thinner and dressier, are sport watches at heart, each with a flare of fiery red (the crown) that serves as a reminder of GV2’s youthful individuality.

Watches in the Fiamme collection feature 42 mm square-shape cases; because the square is slightly rounded, the shape is often referred to as a “TV screen” for its resemblance to a tube television screen. All of the cases are made of stainless steel with variations in black and rose gold IP. The casebacks have multiple engravings including the GV2 logo and flame-like fiamme shapes that rise up from the lower portion of the case. The limited edition numbers (of 500) are also etched into the back, as are the model reference numbers and the words “Swiss made.” Anti-reflective sapphire crystals cover the dials and every watch in the collection is water resistant to 165 feet.

In all there are five versions in the collection: steel case and silver numerals with either a black or white dial; IP rose gold steel cases and rose gold numerals with either a black dial or a white-and-black dial, and; one version with an IP black steel case, black numerals and black dial.

The highpoint of the dial design are the oversized raised Roman numerals that broaden out from the center. A vertical ribbed pattern in the middle of the dial is surrounded by a seconds track, also in the TV screen shape. Notches in the bezel reiterate the hour markers. The pointed hour and minute hands have luminous inlays, as does the small diamond towards the tip of the second hand. The precision Swiss quartz movement inside also powers the calendar function, with day and date windows prominently displayed at 3 o’clock.

Every Fiamme model comes with a black rubber strap that contributes to the overall sporty tone. The strap is custom fitted to the case and lugs, and has a streamlined ribbed pattern through its center that unites it with the dial. The strap closes by way of a tidy push-button folding clasp. On each watch the clasp matches the case, i.e., steel clasps with steel cases and IP coated steel clasps with IP coated steel cases.

Buy GV2 Fiamme Watch CollectionFiamme watches are perfect for men who need a watch that has a more subdued size and shape, but who still want to signal their desire to stand out from the crowd. These masculine and versatile watches will slip neatly under a shirt during the week and transition easily to casual life on the weekend. Look up an authorized GV2 watch dealer today and pick your favorite.

Ferragamo Idillio Mermaid Watch Collection


by Meehna Goldsmith  

Ferragamo WatchesFerragamo first designed the Idillio watch collection for men, but the design is so classic and dynamic that they have extended the collection to include models for the fairer sex. Inspired by the notion of poetry in motion, Ferragamo refers to the Idillio collection for women as “poetical visions of the passage of time.”

The Idillio collection takes the mermaid as its theme, a fascinating and beautiful creature that is half woman and half fish. Just as a mermaid’s tail shimmers with beautiful colors of the rainbow, so does the Idillio’s dial, composed of mother-of-pearl marquetry that resembles the mermaid’s bewitching tail.

The scaling pattern of the mermaid’s tail is so subtly beautiful that the designers wisely let it be the star of the show by keeping the time-only watch simple and uncluttered with minimal time elements, those which are necessary to quickly read the hours and minutes. Set against the mother-of-pearl backdrop on some models are four diamond hour indexes at the quarter hours and a sweep seconds. The symmetrical placement of the diamonds add class and sparkle to the composition.

Other models forgo hour indexes and a sweep seconds, placing the diamonds in a circular pattern below 12 o’clock that resembles a moon. The sword hands on all the models in the collection are filled with luminous material to reveal the time in lower light conditions, which at the same time gives the dial an ethereal glow in the dusk.

Housed in a 34 mm case embellished with cabochons on the lugs and crown, the Idillio offers a variety of mother-of-pearl dials, including shades of purple, cream, silver and white paired with on-trend leather bands with crocodile print including colors of black, silver, purple, blue and gold.

Cases complement the mother-of-pearl hues and come in stainless steel, IP gold and the hot revived trend of a two-tone option on a bracelet. Most come with a secure deployant buckle. For convenience of wear, the Idillio is powered by a Swiss quartz movement.

Imbued with that Ferragamo style, the Idillio manages to be a fashion forward as well as timeless piece that is always stunningly on cue. Purchase your Ferragamo Idillio watch from an authorized Ferragamo dealer.

Glam Rock Vintage Glam Watch Collection


by Meehna Goldsmith  

Glam Rock WatchesIn the heyday of Hollywood the likes of Barbara Stanwyck, Clark Gable, Marilyn Monroe, Cary Grant and Lauren Bacall lit up the big screen. Through their manner, speech, poise, and, of course, their clothing and accessories, they defined what it was to be glamorous.

With the Vintage Glam watch collection, Glam Rock hearkens back to a time when glamour was a way of life. It combines the sparkly sophistication of a nostalgic period with the bold and fashion forward edge of the 21st century. It’s a unique fusion of styles that doesn’t necessarily make for an obvious pairing, but Glam Rock pulls it off and evolves into a new and original genre for the modern woman.

Vintage glamour is all about curves and silhouettes and the Vintage Glam collection captures them both. Glam Rock proves that glamour doesn’t have anything to do with size. There is a statement-making piece that comes in a 45 mm case with eye-popping dials — and soft silicon straps because glamour is also characterized by a tactile sense. However, for those women who prefer a smaller case there are 40 mm and 34 mm sizes as well.

There is also a tonneau and oval shaped case, which fits right into the vintage theme when those cases were more predominant. The Vintage Glam collection incorporates signature characteristics that demonstrate the beautiful meshing of the vintage and modern designs, such as the lovely oversized teardrop-style lugs and large onion crown.

Right on trend, Glam Rock offers the three different styles of watchcases composed of stainless steel, stainless steel with IP gold, and a combination of stainless steel and stainless steel with IP gold.

The name of this watch brand immediately announces its aesthetic, and while it’s a wild ride of different interpretations of two styles that seemingly don’t go together, Glam Rock pulls it off with flair. A combination of a rock-n-roll sensibility with glamorous touches gives these watches a distinct personality. Moreover, Glam Rock’s creativity continually puts a new spin on the concept with new collections to please every woman’s tastes.

The Swiss made Glam Rock Bal Harbour collection pays tribute to the city Bal Harbour, Florida, a place where the beautiful people from around the world congregate for the culture and to express their trend setting style. Bal Harbour watches reflect this eclectic dynamic with artistic dial designs drenched in color to those with a monochromatic look. Furthermore, the dials offer different designs by displaying 3D flower appliqués or embedded diamonds in the dial and the hour indexes. After all, this is a glamorous brand and what better way to exude glamor than with one of the most coveted and sparkling stones to catch the eye.

Usually straps are a utilitarian part of a watch, a uniform closure that incorporates a color to match the color schema to finish off the look. Glam Rock goes a step further by using the band as an integral part of design with details like double chain link bracelets with weaved genuine leather or leather bands with perforations. There’s also a little secret that’s just for the wearer if she wants to share it. On the back of the rounded caseback is a tortoise look application.
