GV2 Powerball Watch Collection


by Adrian Herscovici  

An Original Racer that is Out of This World

GV2 WatchesThe Powerball by GV2 is among the most distinctive watches on the market in any category – nothing else looks quite like it. The design combines two complementary motifs within a stadium-shape case to achieve a look that is part science fiction, part motor speedway.

One unmistakable emphasis of Powerball watches is racing sport: an axis bridge between 9 and 3 looks like a vintage race car steering wheel and the small seconds hand would surely suit the dial of a car’s tachometer or speedometer. In addition, the Powerball rubber strap features a distinctive tire-tread pattern.

The second theme is circles – hence the name Powerball – which appear all throughout the design of the watch and there are few straight lines or severe edges. It begins with the round 45 mm case and bezel. The first tier in from the bezel is a flange with globular markers. Next is the chapter ring, which has numerals at 05, 25, 35 and 55 along with circular minute markers. Moving into the central area of the dial, two date wheels are visible below the cutaway dial screen. The small seconds register is also round, as are the individual links that form the hour and minute hands.

As such, these elements are all cleverly combined, but the Powerball has an additional unifying quality – multi-dimensionality. The aforementioned layering of the dial creates a stadium effect with tiers and a declining slope towards center. This is echoed in the case design, which from its profile has the appearance of a stadium’s exterior. Not only does this case styling give the watch an original look, it means that a smaller portion of the case actually touches the wearer’s wrist, making for a more comfortable fit. The stadium shape also creates a natural projection of the fluted crown, which makes it easy to grasp for quick adjustments.

Several models of the Powerball are available. Case options are stainless steel, black PVD and one model in rose gold IP. Dials variants include models with yellow accents, blue accents and one with brown accents (exclusive to the rose gold version). Powerball watches use Swiss quartz movements, have solid casebacks and are water resistant to 165 feet.

The Powerball rubber strap is available in black, blue, red, yellow or brown. The adjustable bracelet, which features removable screw links (superior to pin links), comes in stainless steel or black PVD. Both the strap and bracelet open and close by way of a high-grade, double-folding deployant clasp.

With so many details in its makeup, the GV2 Powerball is a watch worth staring at, and will undoubtedly garner some extra attention. Its multidimensional case and intriguing dial design are appealing to anyone who wants a watch that stands out for being original. This colorful and classy sport watch makes a great addition to any watch collection. Contact an authorized GV2 dealer today and pick your favorite.

Gevril and GV2 Watches Shine at Couture Show 2013

by John Sealander  

Gevril and GV2 Headline a Stellar Array of
Gevril Group Brands at Couture Las Vegas

Gevril WatchesThe Wynn Hotel’s Chambertin 2 Ballroom was home to many popular Gevril Group brands during the recently concluded Couture watch and jewelry show, including Gevril’s own Gevril and GV2 timepieces.

When Samuel Friedmann acquired historic Swiss watchmaker Gevril Horlogerie, he was determined to build on this company’s illustrious watchmaking heritage. The company’s signature Avenue of the Americas line is still popular today and is based on a case design that was discovered in Gevril’s historical archives. The distinctive retro look of this luxury timepiece, with its beveled dial and beautifully hand painted numbers, got a lot of attention from visitors at the Couture show.

A newer Gevril design, the unique Columbus Circle model also received a lot of favorable buzz at the show. The dial of this spectacular watch immediately catches your attention with a day/date display featuring a rotating inner dial with seven astrological symbols representing each day of the week. This watch is engraved with a beautiful etching of New York’s famed Columbus Circle on the case back and features an observation window revealing the precision Swiss made ETA 2834-2 automatic movement inside.

Prominently displayed at the front of the Gevril display case was the spectacular Gevril Serenade 5850. This stylish Art Deco design features a dual time-zone dial with white gold hands for the primary time zone and a blue, skeletonized hand for the secondary zone. Unique to this watch are two day/night disks at 3 and 9 o’clock that indicate AM or PM hours in their respective time zone. This exclusive timepiece is available in white gold, rose gold, or platinum in editions that are strictly limited to just 50 pieces worldwide.

Gevril’s trend-setting GV2 line was well represented at the Couture show by popular collections, including the GV2 Corsaro, Powerball and Parachute. The striking looking Corsaro made a big statement at this year’s show with an oversized two-layer 316L stainless steel case that harmoniously combines two very different angular and round geometries. This stylish, precision chronograph features a unique double layer textured dial with three well-placed subdials for timing events.

The GV2 Powerball has been a popular favorite since it was initially introduced. It is hard to ignore the amazing three-dimensional dial that calls attention to a continuous small second hand at 6 o’clock and the big date indicator at 12 o’clock. With a beautifully partially skeletonized dial that reveals the two date wheels below, just telling the time with this amazing watch can be a mesmerizing experience.

The rugged looking GV2 Parachute Chronograph is a precision timing instrument that makes quite a fashion statement as well. This spectacular diver style watch features a dramatic two-tone rotating diver bezel marked in 60-minute increments and three well-placed subdials for timing events. The oversize 45 mm stainless steel case is water resistant to 165 feet.

The activity in the Chambertin 2 Ballroom during this year’s Couture show suggests that, despite what the ads say, everything in Vegas doesn’t necessarily stay in Vegas. If the Gevril and GV2 order books are any indication, there are going to be a lot more of these amazing watches on people’s wrists all over the country this year.
