YA125403 Watch

The stunning G-Gucci YA125403

Written by: Caitlin Rojas
This stunning watch, the G-Gucci Model YA125403, is a classic example of Gucci’s ability to meld the world of high-end fashion with that of quality craftsmanship. Handcrafted with the highest quality PVD coated black stainless steel, the band is formidable, yet delicate, and the Swiss made watch case is a gorgeous rounded off square of the same material.

This ladies timepiece is feminine, yet strong. Our eyes are drawn immediately to the all-black features, which have such great potential for dressing up a basic outfit or dressing down evening wear. The band, which consists of softly edged rectangular links joined together with a jewelry type clasp, transforms this watch into a fantastic piece of jewelry as well. I was particularly drawn to the sun-brushed black dial, which gives the face a dark silvery shimmer, especially when contrasted with the bright silver toned hands. Cleverly, the bezel is a fixed black G-shape, indented near the knob, reminding everyone, including you, that you’re not just wearing a watch – you’re wearing a luxury Gucci watch. Yet it does this all with a modern subtlety that implies class, rather than shouts it.

The potential drawbacks are few, and even scouring the internet revealed not a single complaint about this product, though I do feel it necessary to mention that the time is indicated only by sticks on the hour, and not marked with numbers, which could potentially make time-telling difficult for some.

Now, for the necessary details.

  • Black Stainless Steel band with a Black Stainless Steel case
  • Case dimensions: 22.5 millimeters x 24 millimeters
  • Jewelry Clasp
  • Waterproof up to 100 feet (or 30 meters)
  • Scratch Resistant Sapphire Crystal Face
  • Swiss Made Quartz Movement
  • Includes hour, minute and second hands
  • Silver Toned hour stick markers

This G-Gucci timepiece is very much a steal, listed officially by Gucci for $795, though widely available through American websites such as Amazon, and “luxury for less” type websites such as JomaShop, Macy’s and WatchesByDesign, where you may be able to buy it for less. Gucci’s ladies products are known for their luxurious, delicate feel and Swiss-made toughness, and this watch is certainly a fantastic example of such.
