Thoroughbred Gucci Style

Tomorrow is the Belmont Stakes and a great deal of speculation surrounds the race to see if the highly favored champion American Pharaoh will take Horse Racing’s Triple Crown and win the prized Belmont this year.

Last year, California Chrome tried to accomplish the feat of winning the coveted Triple Crown, but failed in the attempt at Belmont. Prior to California Chrome, seven other horses: Silver Charm, Real Quiet, Charismatic, War Emblem, Smarty Jones, Big Brown and I’ll Have Another have all won both the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, but have also came up short at the Belmont Stakes.GUCCI-YA114212

Gucci reflects a rich heritage in horse riding and horse racing. The brand’s horsebit signature emblem was developed in the 1950’s as an homage to the horse-riding Italian aristocrats, who were the very first customers of the brand’s founder Guccio Gucci.

The multi-function black digital dial features multi world time zone display with day, date and alarm functions. A scratch-resistant sapphire adds to the prestigious design. Premium Swiss-made quartz movement inside assures you of precise time-keeping accuracy.

Exemplary Swiss-Made Precision

Swiss-made is a term easily recognized on a watch dial. It is also associated with a good number of prestigious watch brands from Rolex, Chopard and Baume & Mercier to TAG Heuer, Raymond Weil and Maurice Lacroix.

Only timepieces made in Switzerland…from the intricate movement inside the case to the exterior craftsmanship of the case along with the assembly of the bezel, crystal, bracelet and strap…can be deemed as a Swiss-made watch.

Prominent international watchmaker Swiss Legend is currently  in the process of transitioning itself as a Swiss-made watch brand. The recent introduction of the  brand’s new Atari, Altitude and Meridian Swiss-made collections now qualify Swiss Legend as a Swiss-made watchmaker.SL-10611-22S-BB (1)
