Last week, I was so excited to know that we would start selling Gucci watches. The luxurious brand that celebrities are so fond of has created beautiful timepieces for what my pick of the day couldn’t be more clear.
My pick, the iconic Gucci bamboo bangle watch has a history of its own: bamboo is one of Gucci’s most iconic motifs; it was developed during the Second World War in a time where materials were scarce. The noble material proved to be an attractive and practical alternative. The bamboo cane was imported from China and from there it went through a process that involved heating and molding executed by skilled artisans in Italy. Every timepiece is unique, since each piece of bamboo is shaped, carved and crafted by hand. From Italy, the watches depart to La Chaux-de-Fonds in Switzerland, the place known as the world capital of the watch making industry, to be finally assembled.

The new bamboo style has a round case and it’s available in three variants: with a black, brown or silver sun-brushed dial. I loved the brown dial variant with its softer contrast, but really, the star here is the natural bamboo details and the gorgeous stainless steel bangle that lends this watch a level of sophistication and elegance you could only expect from this iconic brand.
