The Gucci G-Frame Square Women's Brown Satin Strap 18k Case Watch YA128506

The elegant, refined, and contemporary Gucci G-Frame Women's Square Brown Satin Strap 18k Case Watch


Stylish and subtle, simple yet sophisticated—if that’s what you want in a watch (plus a little gold), then the Gucci G-Frame Women’s Square Brown Satin Strap 18k Case Watch YA128506 is for you. Its striking yet understated look is the perfect timepiece for today’s powerful and refined woman. From its satin, gold, and sapphire elements to its sturdy build and precise engineering, this will make a great impression and complete any outfit.

The Brown Satin Strap Watch is part of the G-Frame Collection, which features “an added touch of femininity into everyday wear,” “slim-line elegance,” and streamlined design for a modern wardrobe. What’s unique about this watch is its satin-finished strap, lending a silky, soft feel against your wrist rather than regular leather or cold metal. In addition, even among the G-Frame Collection, this watch has a very unique classic-looking gold-and-silver combination.

This stunning watch has many other quality features that make it stand apart:

The Look:

  • 18 karat silver-toned yellow gold bezel
  • 18 karat yellow gold case
  • Light brown dial (watch face) with gold-toned hands
  • Gold stem (side knob for changing time) with Gucci “G” symbol engraved
  • Pyramid-shaped sapphire crystal dial window
  • Brown satin strap with gold classic ardillon buckle clasp

 The Technical Specs:

  • Swiss-made RONDA quartz movement
  • Unscratchable sapphire crystal dial window with anti-reflective coating on the inside
  • Water resistant up to 99 feet (30 M/3 ATM)
  • 14.0 mm case diameter and 9.0 mm band width
  • 2-year international warranty

An elegant alternative, for those who like black, silver, and diamonds: The Gucci G-Frame Square Black Strap Black Diamond Dial Watch

This luxurious one-of-a-kind watch has no other varieties, and sells at a retail price of $2,595. There are similar watches in the G-Frame collection, however, such as the Gucci Women’s G-Frame YA128501, which has a steel bracelet and a brown dial ($750 retail). However, this watch does not seem as elegant, with its chunky cold metal band.

A good alternative is the Gucci Women’s G-Frame Square Black Strap Black Diamond Dial Watch YA128503 (pictured to the right), which has a black laquered dial with three diamonds marking the three, six, and nine o’clock positions, a black satin strap, and stainless steel case ($795). This is a quite elegant and affordable alternative, if you prefer black and silver, and like a little more direction with your time markings. However, it lacks the warmth of the YA128506, with its 18 karat gold, light brown dial and brown satin strap. It’s a little like the brown and gold watch representing daytime, and the black and silver one representing nighttime.

Finally, if you prefer a non-chain metal bracelet and slightly more bling, then the Gucci Women’s YA128504 G-Frame Square Steel Bangle Diamond Case Watch ($1,650) may be up your alley, which features a row of diamonds on the top and bottom of the case and a jewelry clasp.

So, to summarize:


  • Luxurious, elegant, classic yet modern, streamlined watch
  • Perfect for everyday wear, including work and daytime
  • Unique contrast of gold and silver (well, silver-toned yellow gold)
  • Comfortable satin band
  • Water resistant, scratch resistant surface, and anti-reflective coating inside


  • One of the more expensive G-Frame watches ($2,595 retail)

So is this the right watch for you? Other alternatives run along these lines with different color faces and bands, but this Gucci G-Frame Women’s Square Brown Satin Strap 18k Case Watch YA128506 is undeniably one of the most beautiful in the G-Frame line. It retails at $2,595 but can be found for $2076 watchsonnet.com and varietywatches.com and $1,630 on watches-swiss.com. There is no other watch like the Brown Satin Strap G-Frame though, and you get the quality for what you pay. Now it’s just up to you to decide: brown or black, metal or satin band, diamonds or gold?
