If you’re looking to recreate a vintage style of dress and fashion, and of course want to look your best doing it, the Gucci 1921 collection has some of the best selection of antiquated watches to choose from. A primo replica of these antique styles is the Gucci 1921 Women’s Watch with White Leather Bangle and Case, YA130404.

The 1921 collection has a distinct vintage style to its line.

The Gucci 1921 collection features distinct styles from the Roaring ‘20s when fashion was a blooming industry and symbols of decadence were key to distinguishing who you were. Modest motifs of glamour did much for a ladies esteem, which is apparent in the design of the YA130404 White Women’s Wristwatch. This item from the 1921 collection features polished stainless steel paired with white calfskin coverings to accent its modest heritage.

The white calfskin bezel surrounds the white watch dial, protected by Gucci standard scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and antireflective solution. Silver toned hour and minute hands keep time by eight silver baton hour markers, and the namesake Gucci logo located just beneath the twelve o’clock position. Other standard features include the reliability of quartz movement, a jewelry clasp closure and another of Gucci’s signature symbols, the horsebit featured along the bracelet and clasp.

The watch retains a look of sophistication with its squared shape and whitewashed appearance, guaranteed to stand out against any bare wrist. Though its style may be inspired by vintage design, the pieces from the Gucci 1921 collection are all modernized timepieces that function up to par.

The 1921 collection comes in a variety of colors and skins.

As with many Gucci timepieces the stainless steel casing and bangle are water resistant and function up to 100ft in water, but it should be known that the calfskin coating is not water proof. When soaked, the leather can flay, potentially stripping the piece of its visual appeal. Though this collection has a wide range of colors and styles of calfskin to choose from, they are not designed to be interchangeable, meaning this timepiece would be best worn while sauntering downtown or window shopping. It would be highly inadvisable to wear this piece while tanning near the beach or  sail boating across the coast. For the price of this product, it would be much more than a simple inconvenience if it were to get soaked and permanently damaged.

This White Leather Gucci 1921 Women’s Watch and other like versions will run about $1,200 from the Gucci online store or any other retailers. The vintage style of the 1921 collection continues to uphold the quality and tradition of Gucci products.
