It is not a surprise that one of Manhattan’s most prominent residences became the namesake for one of Gevril’s most prestigious timepieces.
When Alva Vanderbilt hired prominent architect Richard Morris Hunt to build her Fifth Avenue chateau, she was determined to make the home a showplace. It was. The spectacular mansion remained one of Manhattan’s most prominent addresses from 1883 until it was ultimately demolished in 1926.

As a tribute to this spectacular residence, Gevril is introducing the equally spectacular Vanderbilt Collection. These elegant 47 mm men’s automatic timepieces feature a beautiful skeletonized Ruben & Sons MSCH Swiss automatic movement.
The open-heart design allows you to see the precision movement at work on both the front and back of the watch. The exhibition back is also imprinted with a stylized drawing of the famous Fifth Avenue Vanderbilt mansion.

This limited edition timepiece is encased in 316L stainless steel and is water resistant to 165 feet. An antireflective scratch resistant sapphire crystal protects a beautiful black or silver open-heart dial that has been decorated with Roman numeral indices and the Gevril logo at twelve o’clock. Like all Gevril luxury timepieces, the Vanderbilt is protected by a two-year manufacturer’s warranty.
The distinctive Vanderbilt is available in five exciting editions, including stainless steel, IP yellow gold, and IP rose gold models. The spectacular three-hand configuration can be fitted with a black crocodile patterned premium leather strap, or a fitted stainless steel bracelet that matches the case color.
