History of Gucci Grip Watches
The Gucci Grip collection of watches is a fairly new addition to the Italian luxury designer brand’s line of fashion and accessory items. The collection was first introduced in 2019.
Despite this, having been designed with skaters of the 1970s in mind, Grip watches are nothing short of character and charm.
Gucci creative director, Alessandro Michele has taken inspiration from the unique styles and personas of skateboarders from the late 1970s and has created a collection of watches that pays homage to the iconic period.
And not just through their design features. Rather, the name “Grip” is a reference to the way in which a skateboarder’s shoes stick to the grip tape on the board.
