I’ll start this Gucci Dive 45mm “Bee Embroidery” dial reference YA136216 watch survey by quickly recognizing that this isn’t a watch for everybody. Truth be told, if your preferences are generally about utilitarian “serious” device watches and your emphasis is more on capacity versus style (nothing amiss with that), you are likely not going to have a lot of interest for this watch. After at first covering the new slew of “animal face” Gucci Dive watches with embroidery or rubber” dials a few months back, the sort of polarizing impact this sort of style watch had was self-evident. Furthermore, that didn’t shock me.

With that stated, I discover these watches fun. They aren’t intended to supplant a device style or conventional watch, yet they offer an engaging flavor for the individuals who appreciate savoring high-design extravagance things just as watches. I not just saw the bigger choice of these “animal divers” with Gucci at Baselworld 2017, yet additionally investigated this Gucci Dive 45mm with the “embroidery dial” myself. So, it’s cool looking, very much done, comfortable, and eye catching. For what it is, I truly appreciate this watch. In the event that you don’t like its possibility, that’s cool. Simply like that there is a spot for watches like this.


Gucci is essential for the Kering Group, which claims a progression of enormous name watch brands, for example, Ulysse Nardin and Girard-Perregaux. Gucci isn’t new to watches and has been making quartz and mechanical watches of different kinds for quite a long time. To a certain extent, the brand is somewhat more notable for their women’s merchandise, however men’s things from Gucci are both common and famous. I’ve been following the brand’s looks throughout recent years, and think that its intriguing how they frequently thoroughly re-try their assortments and commend oddity in a manner that takes into consideration newness and new bearings on a customary basis.

The “bee motif” is essential for that. A few years prior, Gucci concluded that they needed a honey bee to be one of their new creature symbols and just began to place the theme in different plans. They didn’t need to review their set of experiences to ensure it was “appropriate.” For 2017 we see a huge number of watches with nylon texture dials that have weaved honey bees among different creatures, for example, a snake or tiger. This is fragmented between a couple of watch assortments for the two people. This Gucci Dive 45mm is effectively the most manly of these watches, taking a huge dive-style watch and consolidating this more design forward component. It is a half breed without a doubt as it merges two universes together. I review in the comments on my unique post about this a few people complained that this wasn’t a genuine jumping watch. My response was “well, it isn’t attempting to be… aren’t there enough dive keeps an eye out there?” Fashion watches will in general confound or aggravate severe conservatives on the grounds that the things play and merge subjects in manners that are in some cases befuddling or dissolve usefulness. However, when done right, the popular merging of topics can create something that is eventually fun, appealing, and still useful.

Those who aversion showing design names however in any case wearing high-style brands will like the way that you can’t discover the “Gucci” name on the dial of this watch. The solitary piece of the outside of the watch that says “Gucci” is working on it back (which is generally covered by the NATO-style tie), and afterward indeed carefully on the tie clasp. A chunk of time must pass for you to see that reality, and I think it talks well to the certainty of the brand that it wasn’t important to incorporate “Gucci” on the dial. Obviously you do have the little Gucci logo on the crown.


Fashion watches at their best are about a firmly communicated visual picture in a bundle that feels fitting to wear. The particular meaning of this will rely upon the wearer, yet the thought here in the Gucci Dive 45mm Bee Embroidery is that you have an ideal to wear dive-style watch which shuns the customary dial for something a smidgen more aesthetic and lively. Along these lines, the majority of the watch is “familiar” while the aesthetic canvas (the dial) is the place where the curiosity is.

At 45mm wide and water impervious to 200m, the Gucci Dive is truly wearable gratitude to its short carries. I was anxious about the possibility that that it planned to wear too enormous, particularly on the NATO-style tie, yet it truly doesn’t. Discussing the tie, Gucci did it right not just contribution their unique green and red shading theme, yet a NATO-style tie that isn’t excessively long. That implies you don’t need to wrap up abundance tie – which makes the watch look excessively huge. Along these lines, you get the advantage of the comfort in a NATO-style nylon lash, without managing what I once in a while feel is an ungraceful appearance on the wrist. The lash equipment is of a decent quality, and I think the thickness of the tie is ideal. On the lash is composed “L’aveugle Par Amour” which is on a progression of Gucci things in their list. It generally implies “blinded by love,” and is maybe what individuals who don’t like this watch will guarantee is occurring to me in my enthusiasm for it.

The dark PVD-covered case is generally basic, yet has some pleasant subtleties to it. The carries are a different structure and are held set up with torx-style screws, which are uncommon on watches. As a dive-style watch, it has a unidirectional turning bezel, and gold-shaded dive-style hands. There is a lume pip on the bezel, and the hands are lume-filled also. I would have favored for the hands to be somewhat more, yet given the nonattendance of markers on the dial it isn’t that huge of arrangement. You can at present peruse the time effectively enough given that the markers on the pivoting bezel can fill in as hour markers.


Over the bezel is a bit of mineral glass I accept, which offers a decent stylish touch. Generally the dive-style case is utilitarian and alluring, while at the same time offering an intriguing difference to the texture dial. The red stripe on the lash proceeds into the dial, which makes for a charming strong look to the plan. I lean toward the honey bee theme not on the grounds that I feel weak at the knees over winged creepy crawlies, yet rather, when compared to the snake or tiger, it is the most effectively unmistakable and all the more critically, even. Once more, it absolutely doesn’t trouble me a lick that this watch isn’t a group pleaser for watch conservatives. I wouldn’t wear it to a social occasion of watch sweethearts, yet in and out of town in Los Angeles, it is a pleasant thing to put on your wrist which communicates that you like wearing intriguing things and that you aren’t hesitant to be a spot playful.

Inside this Gucci Dive 45mm is a Swiss Ronda quartz development. I like that Gucci ruled against including a seconds hand. Simply an hour and moment hand is sufficient for a watch this way, and it additionally keeps you from seeing a ticking seconds hand which isn’t the most exquisite plan commitment more often than not. Over the watch dial is a level AR-covered sapphire precious stone. I would have favored a top layer of AR-covering too, however generally speaking, the view into the dial is fine.

My audit of the Gucci Dive 45mm YA136216 permitted me to value its comfort just as style. I would not have appreciated this watch so a lot if Gucci didn’t get so many of the little subtleties right. All the more in this way, they made it “fashionable enough” without going over the top (as might have effortlessly been the situation). There is a level of plan limitation here that I acknowledge, particularly when compared to some other Gucci watches that would not allure close to as a lot to a “watch guy&#8221, for example, myself. The oddity of the look and true fun allure of this Gucci Dive 45mm with the honey bee embroidery dial is the thing that I like the most, and that has endured for at any rate half a month of wearing it. It is difficult to foresee what a look like this will age, yet I give enormous praise to Gucci for being creative.


Price for the watch is obviously in the area of “high-end style items.” For the cash you can get a quite decent mechanical watch. So on the off chance that you can move beyond the “luxury brand” evaluating, this is a tolerably made watch with a decent degree of sex advance that should make it extremely esteemed by the correct purchasers. Retail cost for the Gucci Dive 45mm YA136216 is $1,350. gucci.com
