Women's Gucci Bangel Diamond Brown Dial WatchThe Gucci Women’s YA122511 Chiodo Steel Bangle Diamond Case Brown Dial Watch is much more than just a timepiece–it’s a piece of jewelry than can be passed down from generation to generation.

I have a hard time shopping for watches because in most cases they end up being too lose, and I am not a big fan of wearing a watch with a strap, so for  me watches that have a bangle bracelet design are by far the best  because they feel more like bracelets than big chunky watches.

This Chiodo watch by Gucci couples a little glitz  and glam with functionality. There is no way that this design of the bangle strap will get caught on any part of your clothing or  other objects, so you would not have to worry about having to replace the bracelet like a regular watch strap. This timepiece is made of sturdy and durable materials that will outlast any leather or plastic strap bands.

Like the saying goes “Diamonds are a girl’s best friends”, and this elegant watch with its luxurious sparkling diamonds makes a great purchase to add  to your own watch collection or as a gift for someone.

Gucci’s Chiodo watch collection is based on the iconic square heal nail, which since the 1960s has been an emblem for Gucci.  The nail motif  can be found  in gold and silver while the cases of the watch are in round and equally elegant square versions.  The revolutionary design of this luxurious series features a precise quartz movement, and a wide variety of optional and unique diamond placements. The bangle bracelet is set in a polished stainless steel and the face of the watch is set with 16 luminous diamonds.  The slim circular case on the watch provides the base for the brown helix dials that have silver toned hands as well as silver toned hour markers. This bracelet watch also has a hook buckle clasp that is made of  stainless steel.  By far out of all the other watches in this collection, this  model is my favorite because it has so much sparkle and pizazz.

Technical Features:

  • Swiss Quartz movement
  • Water Resistance for 99ft (30 meters)
  • Sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both sides

There are less expensive version of the Chiodo Steel Bangle Bracelet.  They have a very similar look, but are not set with any diamonds.  They are:

  • YA122510-Chiodo Steel bangle brown
  • YA122508- Chiodo Steel bangle silver
  • YA122509-Chiodo Steel bangle black

The Chiodo diamond bangle is priced at $1,495 and I found it on endless.com which is a very reputable site. The  bracelet itself can stand on it own, and will surly become a staple piece in any women’s jewelry collection, and is worth every penny.
