GV2 9101 Astor Women’s Watch

Astor Place Theater


by Adrian Herscovici  

Manhattan Chic

GV2 WatchesNew York’s Astor Place is a short but busy crossroad in the heart of lower Manhattan connecting Broadway, Lafayette and Cooper Square before merging into East 8th Street and St. Marks Place. Astor Place was named after John Jacob Astor, a successful furrier, real estate mogul and patron of arts and culture.

The Astor limited edition women’s watch collection by GV2 is a tribute to Astor and his influential life as a prominent New Yorker. GV2 Astor watches represent refined urban versatility for the modern woman. They are watches designed with classic elements and overtones, fine enough to wear in formal environments, but equally appropriate for casual settings thanks to their chic and durable cases.

Each stainless steel Astor case is a contemporary 40 mm in diameter. The GV2 9101 Astor’s case, interlinked bracelet and push-button deployment clasp are coated in IP yellow gold. The bracelet’s relative narrowness of 18 mm amplifies the case size. The round bezel immediately stands out with its array of 50 genuine diamonds. Because the bezel is wider at the sides and narrower at the top and bottom, the illusion of an oval shape is created. The diamonds are placed accordingly: lined up in a single row at the top and bottom, and offset in two rows where the bezel widens.

The crown is in the shape of an onion bulb, both tasteful and workable, with a decorative blue sapphire cabochon. The blue is picked up again in the small seconds sub-dial at 6 o’clock, which has a centrally mounted blue hand atop engraved concentric rings. Large Roman numerals and cathedral hands on a silver dial round out the traditional facade.

GV2 9700 Aurora Men’s Limited Edition Black-on-Black Watch


by John Sealander  

This stealthy masterpiece covertly tells the time while keeping its namesake’s clandestine secrets safe.

GV2 WatchesWith its sophisticated black-on-black design, the Swiss made GV2 9700 Aurora tells the time on a need-to-know basis. Inspired by the super secret US military Aurora project, this 45 mm, IP black, 316L stainless steel timepiece exudes an aura of mystery. Luminous, skeletonized hands and raised silver indices clearly indicate the time without attracting undue attention. A semitransparent screen on the all-black dial partially reveals a bilingual date wheel below, while two well-positioned windows at 3 and 9 o’clock clearly indicate the correct day and date.

Adding further functionally to this inspired military design is a rotating, all-black aluminum bezel with tactile knurled edges and raised numbers. This unidirectional bezel functions as a practical tool for timing dives and other events, while remaining virtually invisible on the wrist.

This precisely engineered timing tool has been expertly engraved with a conceptual drawing of the mysterious Aurora reconnaissance aircraft on the caseback and has been fitted with a comfortable black silicone strap. If you’re a fan of stealth designs, this could well be the ultimate military watch.

GV2 9402 Grande Watch


by Meehna Goldsmith  

GV2 WatchesThe timepiece was invented as an instrument. Its sole job was to keep time. Since the development of the smartphone with its built in digital time readout, the watch is no longer necessary in the contemporary world for its original purpose. It has been transformed into a fashion accessory that happens to tell time. And with that in mind, you need to choose how to decorate your wrist well.

The GV2 Grande 9402 takes the bull by the horns in the fashion department with its design, color and materials. Those who follow the fashion scene will know that vibrant colors have taken center stage for the season. Fitting right in on the runways, the black diamond-patterned dial of the GV2 Grande 9402 is punctuated with strategically placed fluorescent orange color, including the minutes flange, Arabic numerals, hands and subdial at 6 o’clock. Take particular note of the design of the two Arabic numerals (3 and 9). They are highly stylized and give the piece a very modern and unique look.

For reading the time in low light conditions, the baton hour indexes and hands are coated with Super-LumiNova. The dial also includes a black on white big date aperture that blends nicely with the color scheme.

What really draws attention to the GV2 Grande 9402 is the large case construction. Although the black IP coated stainless steel case measures 42 mm, with the case extension it takes up 50 mm of real estate, so it’s a very substantial piece on the wrist. The case extension, which protects the crown, matches the 21st century style of the Arabic numerals. With its interesting use of negative space, it resembles angular modern furniture design or architecture.

Key features:

  • Ronda 6004.B Swiss quartz movement
  • Black IP coated stainless steel case, diameter 42 mm, with case extension 50 mm, 10.5 mm thickness,

  • 2-year manufacturer’s warranty

Perfect for summer, the GV2 Grande 9402 fits around the wrist with a comfortable black silicone strap and buckle, which resists moisture and discomfort much better than a leather band. Powered by a Ronda 6004.B Swiss quartz movement for years of hassle free wear, the GV2 Grande 9402 is water resistant to 99 feet.
