This modern timepiece is a classic addition to any woman’s wardrobe. It is simple, yet colorful, and bound to add a splash of brightness to daytime attire or evening wear. The bangle style band of the Gucci 112 Twirl Ladies Watch, Model YA112517, is a unique touch of elegance. Gucci’s Twirl series, frequently worn and advertised by women such as Camilla Belle and Mary J. Blige, is an iconic symbol of the Gucci design. Their classic red and green pattern, which is seen everywhere – from bag straps, to purse linings to belts, is shown off beautifully here, with a durable Stainless Steel and Acetate band.

This watch features a fixed stainless steel bezel, a stunning black dial with silver-toned hands, and scratch-resistant synthetic-sapphire face. It’s luxurious green and red detailing is a stark contrast to the beautifully polished steel band which fixes to your wrist with a simple jewelry clasp. The watch fits much more like a bracelet than it does a watch, which is fantastic if you’d like to add a touch of luxury to any outfit. It is also practical, however, and the durable steel is water resistant up to 30 meters (roughly 100 feet,) while the face is made of a long-standing synthetic sapphire – the same material scientists use for experiments with light and radiated energy, for its resistance to scratches and durability.

This watch is a fine example of Gucci’s ability to meld high end fashion with practical wearability. The item is something you could wear easily, with jeans and a t-shirt, but something you could really stand out with in evening wear, like the lovely Camilla Belle is doing below in a black version of the same watch. However, if you don’t like the feel of a bangle-type bracelet (I, for instance, find myself fidgeting with bangles every time I wear them – they are also a hindrance if you’re typing or writing,) this might not be the watch for you. For while it fastens in the back with a flexible band, it is primarily a fixed, stainless steel bangle that will not flex the way most other watches do.

This Gucci timepiece, which Gucci has listed for roughly $800 is available on most popular websites, Amazon included. If you’re looking for a high-end luxury item to spruce up that white t-shirt you can’t seem to stop wearing, this watch is it.
