The marina chain, a famous Gucci symbol adorning accessories and jewellery, is now celebrated with a new collection of stylish timepieces whose design features the highly iconic anchor chain sign.
With its rounded links, this unmistakable signature punctuates the smooth bracelet, embracing the oval case and finishing with a clasp shaped like a leather belt buckle.
The marina chain motif was inspired in the 1960s by the world of yachting, another favourite pastime of the Florentine clientele of Guccio Gucci.
The Marina Chain watch, introduced at the 2009 Spring Summer Gucci Women's Cruise fashion show, is available in two sizes and a rich choice of materials: steel, 18kt yellow gold, or a combination of the two for a striking contrast between the reflections of the two metals.
An elegant black enamel coating can further accentuate the sophistication of this model, adding a glamorous look to the bangles.
Sparkling diamonds can also elegantly adorn the black lacquered or white mother of pearl dial, the case or the bangle.
Distinctive and modern, the new Marina Chain collection aptly illustrates Frida Giannini's unique flair for reinventing classic Gucci luxury for today.
