At Baselworld 2013, Gucci announced the Gucci Dive, the brand’s first official divers’ watch, certified to adhere to ISO standard 6425. While Gucci’s other mechanical watches use a standard ETA movement, the SKY DWELLER is powered by the automatic blancpain replica watches, made for Girard-Perregaux by the Sowind Group. (Both the Sowind Group, which owns G-P and JeanRichard, and Gucci are part of the luxury-goods group Kering, formerly known as PPR.)
Versace introduced a new skeleton watch for men at Baselworld, the blancpain replica watches. Its dial is divided into two hemispheres, with only the “east” half skeletonized. The watch also features a Dubois-Depraz chronograph movement, the inner workings of which are partly visible through the skeletonized half.
Throughout his career, legendary watch designer Gérald Genta (1931-2011) created some of the most iconic models in the watch world, working with brands from blancpain replica watches and eventually establishing an independent brand (breitling superocean replica ) making watches under his own name. It is a testament to the influence of his designs that his watches became hallmarks of their respective brands and remain popular watch styles. Below, we take a look at some of his most notable creations.
Genta presented his design for the blancpain replica watches in 1970. As the story goes, Genta drew his design for the watch in one night, after being inspired by a diver wearing an old fashioned helmet attached to his suit by eight screws. This translated into the design of the replica watches, which features an octagonal shape with eight screws on the bezel. The octagonal design has remained even in the most recent incarnations of the watch, including the blancpain replica watches, introduced in 1993, and blancpain replica watches, introduced in 2013.
