Gucci Marina Chain Diamond YA121303 Women's Watch

If you’re looking for a timepiece that looks feminine, bold, and sophisticated all in one, the Gucci Marina Chain YA121303 Women’s Watch covers all bases. Effortlessly sleek, this watch looks like more of an accessory than another humdrum watch.

Made of stainless steel, the band is beautifully crafted to look like a very stylish set of chains. One user thought it looked more like a “cuff bracelet” (Amazon.com). Personally I find the linked bracelet its most appealing aspect, enabling this timepiece to double as a charming piece of jewelry. At 24mm wide, this bracelet is not a slight piece. Rather, it is a bolder accessory that catches the eye. The buckle clasp on the bracelet makes for easy use for anyone.

The face of the watch is incredibly alluring, with its black lacquered dial that exudes an air of sophistication. This piece also boasts 3 diamonds–one at the 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock, and 9 o’clock positions, with the Gucci logo at the 12 o’clock. With only the hour and minute functions, the sleekness of this piece depends on its minimalism.

Not just a beautiful fashion accessory, Gucci has made sure to implement a few protective measures. The mirror of the face is made of scratch-resistant, anti-reflective sapphire crystal. This watch is also water resistant for up to 30m deep, though it is cautioned that it is unsuitable for prolonged water contact. With prices ranging online from around $617 to the retail price of $935.00, this timepiece also comes with a two-year warranty.

This watch is most definitely more of a statement fashion accessory than a truly functioning timekeeper. For those who need a precise measure of time, the lack of time markers except for the 12,3,6, and 9 o’clock positions could prove an issue. However, using a Swiss Quartz movement, this watch accurately tells time as well as any other timepiece. If you were looking for a Gucci watch with a digital time movement, the i-Gucci line is a new collection that is making tracks and worth a look.

A different variation of the Gucci Marina Chain Diamond Watch is also from the Marina Collection, the Marina Black Dial Watch YA121505. Without the diamonds on the dial, this watch instead has them on the links on the bracelet. Equally beautiful, these two watches present the same alluring sophistication that Gucci is so famous for.
