To celebrate their 90th anniversary, Gucci is rolling out a new line of products dubbed the “1921 Collection,” a reference to the House’s first year in business. Gucci, the Italian fashion brand that has long since been the final word on luxury jewelry, accessories and apparel, is proud to introduce the Gucci 1921 YA130408 women’s timepiece. The watch is elegant and sophisticated, featuring a brown leather strap, a complementary brown dial, and silver markings that leap off the watch face for a bold visual impact.

The delicate beauty of this watch, as well as its $11,000 price tag, means that this is not a piece for everyday use. But if you are a woman who wants to look stunning everywhere she goes and you are looking for that perfect way to accentuate your look, consider the Gucci 1921 YA130408. It is a fabulous way for you to treat yourself to a bit of luxury and it would also make the perfect gift for any discriminating fashionista in your life.

Downsides: The drawbacks to owning a Gucci 1921 YA130408 are related to its inherent delicacy and fragility. It is meant to fit loosely, draping across the wrist elegantly and languidly. It is not, therefore, meant to be worn when much physical activity is required. It also comes with a hefty price tag, even if you buy from discount retail websites like those listed above.

The Bottom Line:

Gucci’s Creative Director Frida Giannini says of the 1921 product line that “Each item in the collection tells a story, representing a chapter within the House’s rich narrative history.” When you buy the Gucci 1921 YA130408, not only will you be wearing a piece of Gucci’s storied past and exquisite style on your wrist; you will be writing yourself into a new chapter of this brand’s rich cultural narrative on sophistication and style.
