Gevril Avenue of Americas Women’s Super Mini Mother of Pearl Watch Collection

by Meehna Goldsmith

Gevril WatchesThose who are in the watch business or students of horologic history know that Gevril is a brand with roots dating back to the mid 1700’s. Founder Jacques Gevril and his descendants were quite talented fellows, standing out from other watchmakers of the day. King Ferdinand VI was so impressed with Jacques Gevril that he appointed him Royal Swiss Watchmaker to the Spanish Crown. In fact, Gevril made his first chronometer, a watch that must keep very accurate time to qualify for the designation, in 1743, and a minute repeater, a watch that tells time through acoustics, in 1758. More than just a master of mechanics Gevril also gained a reputation for making fine dials.

As the centuries moved on, the Gevril brand faded… until watch veteran Samuel Friedmann decided he wanted to own it. Looking into the annals of history he discovered Gevril and its combination of traditional foundations that combined potential for modern relevance. He first presented the new incarnation of the Gevril brand in 2001, all of whose collections have been named in deference to New York City, one of the most spectacular places in the world.

Gevril Avenue of Americas Super Mini Watch CollectionThe Avenue of Americas Super Mini Mother-Of-Pearl Collection takes its name from one of the grand streets that runs through New York City. Also referred to as Sixth Avenue, Avenue of the Americas has witnessed the growth of the City with buildings such as Macy’s department store, Rock Center and Radio City Music Hall taking up residence there.
