Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry and The Recording Academy have just announced their three-year partnership inspired by the Grammy Awards. Especially for this occasion, Gucci designed the Grammy special edition watch and jewelry collection: The I-Gucci Grammy Special Edition.

The watches are crafted in yellow PDV stainless steel and mounted on wide black or white rubber straps endowed by Grammy and Gucci insignia. The case-back is marked by the special Grammy Awards edition label. More glamorous pieces, graced with diamond bezel, are also available as a part of this collection.

This model marks another milestone for Gucci, being the company’s first-ever digital timepiece. The round watch face switches from a two-time zone dial displayed in large digits, to streamline variation with two discrete digital hands indicating the local time.

The I-Gucci Grammy Special Edition utilizes Swiss made quartz movement, nested in extra large (44mm) or medium (40mm) round cases. The dials, available in black or silver variation, are protected by sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating. The watches are mounted on matching black or white rubber straps, with Grammy’s insignia and finished with yellow PVD deployant buckle. Water resistant to 100 meters, these watches are suitable even for the swimming and shallow snorkeling.

The Grammy special edition watches are designed by Creative Director Friga Giannini. Gucci's suggested retail price for this model starts from $1345.
