Limited Edition GV2 Scacchi Chess Watch

Chess Game

by Adrian Herscovici  

GV2 WatchesChess is an ancient board game of strategy and tactics played by millions of people around the world. The game’s ongoing popularity is owed in part to the myriad possibilities of how a match can unfold, which is dependent on the mastery of strategies and maneuvers.

Like a watch, chess is portable: all that is required is a chessboard and a set of pieces called chessmen, which can be toted easily from one place to another. And like mechanical watchmaking, chess has an innate connection to several branches of mathematics making it an apt theme for watch design.

The GV2 Scacchi is a men’s collection of chess-themed watches — Scacchi is an Italian word for chess. Each Scacchi watch features a substantial 46 mm case made from stainless steel. The caseback boasts a round checkerboard engraved pattern as well as a small aperture to glimpse the movement’s winding rotor. The sides of the case are fluted, as is the head of the crown, which resembles a rook — an important chessman.

The current GV2 Scacchi collection contains six versions: three with a black-and-white checkered chessboard dial, and three more with a solid black dial. Both dials are available in one of three cases: stainless steel case with black IP bezel, black IP case and bezel, and rose gold IP case with black IP bezel. The design of the bezel features checkered squares cast at contrasting angles.

Scacchi checkered dials resemble a chessboard from a bird’s-eye view. In addition to the board, the design features a red king’s crown at 12 o’clock, a red queen’s crown at 6 o’clock, red knights (represented by horse heads as they do in the game) at 2 and 9 o’clock, and white pawns at the remaining hours. The hour and minute hands are also shaped like chess pieces, probably bishops, although they could also be variants of the king or queen since chessmen have numerous forms from one set to another.

Variants with the solid black dial retain the red crown at 12 o’clock, but use Roman numerals as hour markers instead of chessmen to create a more traditional look and feel. The date function at 3 o’clock is mutual to every Scacchi model.

Every GV2 Scacchi watch contains a Swiss made self-winding movement, a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating and a black leather calfskin strap, which pairs well with the watch’s black bezel. Scacchi watches are water resistant to a maximum of 165 feet and each variant is a limited edition.

Chess is the game of kings. Some enjoy it quietly between friends; others play competitively at the international tournament level. The Scacchi watch by GV2 is appropriate in either scenario and versatile far beyond. Whether it’s to express a general interest and strike up a conversation, or simply to delight in the game’s regal sensibilities on a daily basis, consider the GV2 Scacchi as the next addition to your watch collection. Contact an authorized GV2 dealer to find out more.

Spectacular Gevril Vanderbilt Watch Collection

Gevril Vanderbilt Caseback Cover

by John Sealander  

It is not a surprise that one of Manhattan’s most prominent residences became the namesake for one of Gevril’s most prestigious timepieces.

Gevril WatchesWhen 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.
