Gevril Columbus Circle Limited Edition on Display at Baselworld 2012

Columbus Circle in 1913

by John Sealander  

It’s about time that New York’s most prestigious neighborhood inspired a watch worthy of its name.

Gevril WatchesColumbus Circle is at the epicenter of everything that makes New York great. Central Park, Lincoln Center, Broadway, and some of the most exclusive shopping in Manhattan are all located with walking distance of this historic monument, which was erected on the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus landing in the Americas.

It is only fitting that master watchmaker Gevril, which has named each of its exclusive collections for well-known Manhattan locations, is now honoring Columbus Circle with a fabulous new timepiece that bears the name of this major landmark marking the spot where all official measurements of New York City are measured.

The Gevril Columbus Circle, like it’s New York namesake, is where another important official measurement will soon be made. This spectacular 44mm timepiece is how watch aficionados will soon be measuring the time!

Each watch in the Columbus Circle Collection features a beautifully unique dial that incorporates the seven astrological symbols for the days of the week. This easy-to-read dial is available in several color combinations that show both day and date at a glance using one of the most artful presentations ever produced in a modern day timepiece.

Gevril Columbus Circle CasebackOn the back of this unique watch is a commemorative engraving of the statue of Christopher Columbus at the center of Columbus Circle, along with the limited edition watch’s unique edition number.

Powering this beauty is an ETA 2834/2 movement, based on the famous ETA 2824-2. This 25-jewel Swiss-made movement uses a hand-decorated Gevril rotor that is visible through a special porthole on the commemorative caseback.

The watch is sculpted from a block of solid 316L surgical stainless steel and features a scratch resistant, anti reflective sapphire crystal.

Like all precision Gevril timepieces, the production of the landmark Columbus Circle Collection will be strictly limited. According to Gevril founder Samuel Friedmann, the person who wears a Gevril watch wants something unique that is not over distributed. If you would like to be one of the lucky few to wear a Gevril Columbus Circle, contact your authorized Gevril dealer immediately. These fine timepieces are destined to be as exclusive as the shops that surround this watch’s New York City namesake.

    I own this watch and a few more from Gevril. This watch company has by far the best built, best looking watches for the price range. I collect watches and own many types from many makers, and one of my best that I actually wear most often is all my Gevril line. I do get more wonderful comments over them, even from people that see them from across the room. Thank you for selling such a wonderful timepiece.

    I won this watch and quite a few other very high end watches. Out of all the watches I own the Gevril Columbus Limited edition is by far my favorite time piece. The case back sculpture is truly a remarkable work of art. At this price point and luxury it is a an unbelievable addition to my collection. It is rare that I go out and do not receive compliments on my Gevril and that people don’t ask where they to can obtain one. Thank you Gevril for your outstanding works of horology.
