Gucci incorporates new honeybee motif in its G-Timeless collection
October 20, 2015: Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry has incorporated the honeybee motif into the G-Timeless watch collection. The watch was first seen during Gucci’s Spring-Summer 2016 runway collections where models sported the new G-Timeless honeybee timepieces.
The design is a staple within the Gucci Timepieces portfolio, and its appeal lies in the myriad ways in which the watch can be continually reinvented. This particular time, the collection sees unique embroidered dials with the honeybee rendered in a golden thread, creating a modern motif with unisex appeal.
These new variants, all in a medium 38mm size, see Gucci’s striped green-red-green web worked in a colored weave, overlaid with the gold embroidered bee. The unusual textile dial adds a warm touch. The earthy tones of green, red and gold within the dial are offset with a gold PVD case, and an Interlocking ‘G’ insignia on the crown. The timepiece features a ‘Cuoio Toscano’ calf leather strap in its three tones of red, green or light brown and all variants include both a “cuff” style leather strap and traditional straight strap, easily interchangeable. The bee motif is engraved on the case back as well.
