Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry is pleased to release new additions to the Le Marché des Merveilles collection, which offer a rich palette of materials, mirroring the creative aesthetic of the House today, and champion the workmanship of this constantly evolving watch range. The animal motifs - the tiger, bee and snake - are the hallmarks of this line, and are elegantly worked into these new extensions, which are defined by exquisite embroidery or finely-cut colored leather.
Two timepieces in this range come with a soft brown Toscano calfskin strap; three others have a sportier look and are fitted with a nylon strap featuring the striped Gucci web. These variants also have Gucci's expression, 'L'Aveugle par Amour' woven onto the strap in bold urban lettering. A detail that distinguishes Le Marché des Merveilles timepieces is the use of embroidery on the nylon dials, where intricate designs of a snake, tiger or bee are offset by the web striped background. Cases are coordinated to the colors of each timepiece, worked in warm yellow gold PVD or stainless steel version. The snake is also framed on a special leather variant, crafted from a single piece of leather used for both the strap and the dial. Here, a grainy leather strap is embellished with a highly detailed red snake design that spirals along the strap before being captured under the sapphire glass. This piece comes with a polished stainless steel case.
Each watch in the Le Marché des Merveilles collection is presented in a 38mm size and is engraved with the bee design on the case back.
