GV2: The Evolution of Innovation
The real trailblazers of art and industry take chances to achieve the extraordinary. In the world of watches, where the landscape is inundated with homogenous design, only a select few dare to innovate – the GV2 brand is one of them.
GV2 watches are geared toward people who are inclined to resist the usual and who opt instead to sink their teeth into the more inventive flavors life has to offer. Like the people who wear them, GV2 watches are distinctive, imaginative and original.
From the day it was established, GV2 pushed the boundaries of design, and today it has hit full stride. As ever, GV2 watches are made in Switzerland from the same high-quality components used by the brand’s luxury parent – Gevril Watches – and assembled by the same skilled craftsmen.
The evolution of GV2 watches is apparent in every new timepiece the brand offers: its focus is on progressive design combined with tried-and-true movements and components, which serve as its backbone. Best of all, GV2 watches are offered at prices that make owning a collection of Swiss made watches both desirable and attainable.
GV2 Watch Collections
GV2 watches are daring, lively and brimming with confidence. Most GV2 watches are housed in large contemporary stainless steel cases and often splashed with color. Black IP also plays a significant role in the case designs. Every watch has a Swiss-made movement: most models employ quartz, while others house mechanical automatics.
GV2 Montreux Chronograph
The spectacular GV2 Montreux Chronograph is a high tech marvel that takes event timing to a whole new level. In watch mode, the Montreux functions like any other three-hand configuration timepiece. In chronograph mode, the hour, minute, and second hands transform into totalizers. Even the big date display becomes a totalizer, providing accurate results to a remarkable 1/100 of a second. With its beautiful textured dial, engraved with an intricate guilloché pattern and dual date wheels that rotate in opposite directions, the 44 mm Montreux Chronograph isn’t just a technological marvel, it is an artistic marvel as well. Once you get used to the unprecedented accuracy and convenience of this state-of-the-art timepiece, you will never go back to conventional chronographs.
Scacchi is the Italian word for chess and the inspiration for a spectacular collection of chess-themed timepieces from GV2. The massive 46 mm GV2 Scacchi chess watch is available in six different variations, three featuring black and white checkered chessboard dials, and three with a black dial with a red king’s crown at 12 o’clock. The bezel continues the checkered theme with 24 contrasting squares. This masculine three-hand configuration is powered by a precision Swiss made mechanical movement which can be viewed through a small glass window on the back of the watch. The watch is available in stainless steel, IP black, and IP rose gold and has been fitted with a luxurious black calfskin leather strap. This fabulous sports watch is perfect for chess aficionados, or anyone who appreciates fine timepieces.
The stealthy GV2 Aurora, which takes its name from the secret reconnaissance aircraft developed by the United States during the 1980’s, is the quintessential pilot’s watch. This boldly masculine 45 mm timepiece features black-on-black styling with a unique bilingual date wheel that rotates beneath a semi-transparent screen, exposing the correct day and date through windows located at 9 and 3 o’clock on the dial. The skeletonized hands have bright luminous tips and the indices are silver, making the almost invisible dial extremely easy to read. There are six different models available, each with a red, blue, orange, green black, or white unidirectional rotating bezel that matches the color of the minute indexes on the chapter ring. A comfortable black silicone strap has been fitted, giving the entire watch an under-the-radar appearance.
The impressive GV2 Termoclino could well be the ultimate diver’s timepiece. This precision timing instrument is certified to be water resistant to an astounding 1,000 meters and was expressly designed to meet the needs of professional divers.

Each Termoclino is individually serialized and features a beautifully engraved deep-sea diver’s helmet on the back of the watch.
When GV2 decided to develop their own version of the quintessential drivers watch, they adopted the Scuderia name in honor of Italy’s proud racing heritage.

The sophisticated 42 mm GV2 Fiamme adds an air of suave elegance to any man’s wrist. Featuring a distinctive retro-inspired “TV screen” stainless steel case and a dial with elongated, raised Roman numbers, this three-hand configuration is all about attitude. Taking its name from the fiery red winding crown, the Fiamme uses engraved notches in the gently curved bezel as indices and places the minute track toward the center of the vertically ribbed dial for a polished, but slightly irreverent look. A convenient day/date window at 3 o’clock completes the sporty, yet sophisticated styling.
The Fiamme is available in five different versions with a choice of black or white dials and a stainless steel, IP black, or IP rose gold case. Each version has been fitted with a comfortable black ribbed rubber strap that echoes the ribbed pattern in the center of the dial.

All incorporate black rubber straps. The casebacks feature a clever recessed, rotating roulette wheel, covered by a sapphire crystal. Lucky 7 watches utilize Swiss made automatic movements – time to ante up.
Among its many sport-centric features, including a chronograph and choice of a bracelet or rubber strap, the most prominent component of GV2 Parachute watches is the completely bodacious bezel: its width comprises a significant part of the watch’s 44 mm circumference. A stainless steel caseback fits the watch’s sturdy personality and features an imprint of an open parachute. Equally well built are the set-in crown and chrono pushers. The colored bezels are united with the rest of the watch by way of accent colors on the dial and hands.
