GV2 Corsaro Men’s Watch Collection

by Adrian Herscovici

Confident, Conspicuous, Corsaro

Any survey of sport watches on the market today reveals a vast selection of big watches, and for good reason: people, men especially, love the look and feel of watches that are confident, conspicuous and make an impression. The Corsaro by GV2 delivers. Every component of the Corsaro is constructed with a sense of symmetry. The case generates the greatest visual impact, starting with its overall size – and at 50 mm in diameter and 17.5 mm thick, the Corsaro is a big watch.

There are six models in the current collection, all of which are constructed from high quality 316L stainless steel. Four have natural stainless steel cases with dial variations of red, orange, blue or yellow. Two additional versions are coated in black IP (including the hexagonal screws on the bezel, case and strap) and have either a black or red dial. The crown color of each watch matches the dial color with one exception: the black IP model with the black dial has a white crown. Every variation of the Corsaro is limited to just 500 pieces.

To appreciate the Corsaro case to the fullest, a 360-degree view is required. From the front, cornered edges of brushed steel are angled to echo the hexagonal screws that appear around the watch. The case also extends lengthwise, at the top and bottom, where it merges with the custom strap. A stainless steel, black IP-coated stationary bezel highlights eight hexagonal screws.

On the crown side, two T-shaped chronograph pushers allow the user to easily activate or stop the chronograph. The crown itself is rubberized. On the opposite side, a raised plate featuring the GV2 logo (fastened by two more hexagonal screws) supports the visual balance of the watch.

The back features an exhibition caseback that exposes the winding rotor and other components of the special Technosablier automatic chronograph movement inside. Sixteen traditional screws secure the caseback to the case and contribute to the watch’s water resistance rating of 330 feet.

Dial design is a whole other composition. The center has a geometric pattern on which three sub-dials overlap along with the day and date windows. Two of the sub-dials convey chronograph tasks: a 12-hour totalizer at 6 o‘clock and a 30-minute totalizer at 12 o’clock track elapsed time. The sub-dial at 9 o’clock tracks constant seconds. Each of the sub-dials has a slightly different index design adding variety to the arrangement.

The centrally mounted chronograph seconds-hand has a luminous tip, as do the skeletonized hour and minute hands. The chapter ring encircling the central dial slants upward and provides the base for the large applied luminous hour markers and the thin minutes-and-seconds track. Enclosing it all in is a scratch-resistant anti reflective sapphire crystal.

A robust, 35 mm wide black rubber strap integrates brilliantly thanks to the addition of two large hexagonal rivets placed on each end and custom fittings at the lugs. The strap fastens by way of a sleek deployant push-button clasp buckle.

The GV2 Corsaro is one of the most comprehensive sport watches in the brand’s current lineup of large, colorful watches. It integrates design and function tastefully in the manner you expect from GV2, and expresses self-assuredness worthy of your wrist. Pick one up while you still can at an authorized GV2 dealer.
