Presenting The New 2017 Gucci Dive Watches With Embroidery & Rubber Animal Dials

As mid-range luxury fashion watches go, Gucci Swiss Designer Watches Online produces some rather cool stuff. For 2017, the Gucci Dive collection has a few interesting models that seek to combine the appeal of a sport watch with the look of embroidered fabric or printed rubber. This isn't just uncommon in general, but very uncommon for men's watches. In fact, outside of some Hublot watches for women, these are among the only watches I've seen that demonstrate this decorative embroidery technique on the dial. Clearly not for all tastes, I found these new Gucci watches to be an interesting artistic expression and an overall good look for those seeking something a bit different.

This year, Gucci will release a few watches that have embroidered nylon dials as well as the two rubber ones. Consider these the ideal timepieces for those who have a serious nylon NATO-style strap fetish (actually, if you want to be hyper-technical the straps on these Gucci Dive watches are Zulu-style, and not NATO-style). Most of these products will be in the Gucci Marché des Merveilles collection, which are 38mm-wide "unisex" watches in polished or PVD-coated yellow gold-colored steel cases. The embroidered nylon dials come in green or blue with the animal motifs of a bee, tiger, or snake. There is also one model with a leather dial and a snake image that continues on the leather strap.


Most of these watches adopt the theme of continuing the motif of the strap onto the dial for a neat-looking, cohesive design that certainly has potential. I've seen this in other watches where a stripe on the dial is mirrored on the strap (or vice-versa, however you want to look at it), and in many instances it looks quite handsome. In addition to the Gucci Marché des Merveilles collection, the brand is also releasing at least four new versions of the Gucci Dive, with these animal-decorated dials.
