Feeling creative? Imagine being able to match your watch band with the color of your outfit. Gucci brings this option to you with the Gucci Women’s YA129409 U-Play watch‘s interchangeable bezel. Now you are no longer restricted to one color scheme and it will fit with your wardrobe. This versatile watch proves the genus of Italian craftsmanship and Swiss manufacturing. On its own the elegant silver dial with the interlocking G and the black leather band makes a striking piece. Whichever way you choose to wear this fine time piece it will go well with any occasion.

The Gucci Women's YA129409 U-Play Watch.

Some features of this elegant watch:

  • Comes from the Gucci U-Play collection.
  • Interchanging watch bands with small set.
  • A black guccissima leather strap with ardillon buckle.
  • Silver dial with silver hands and interlocking G.
  • Swiss motion.

Technical features include:

  • Anti reflective sapphire crystal.
  • Analog display.
  • Stainless steel clasp, bezel, and case.
  • Black leather band.
  • Case diameter 35 mm.
  • Quartz movement.
  • Water resistant up to 100 feet.
  • 2 year warranty.

Possible problems with this watch include the interlocking G, the leather band, and the lack of markers on the dial. The interlocking Gs and the silver hands on the silver dial blend together, and with no markers it may be harder to read. The leather can eventually fade, while the stainless steel case lasts longer. An interchangeable bezel makes it easier to lose pieces, be sure to keep your bezels in a safe place. Even though this watch water resistant up to 100 feet, I wouldn’t go swimming with it.
