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.

Gevril Columbus Circle Watch CollectionOne 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.

How to Set Your Gevril Columbus Circle Watch
