Details of Gevril Men's 5121 Rose Gold Avenue of Americas Automatic GMT WatchPart of Gevril's prestigious Avenue of the America collection, this automatic men's timepiece (model 5121) features a watch case and bezel made from 18 karat rose gold. It also includes a subdial showing Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and a power reserve indicator. With an updated retro feel that blends a sense of history with current style, the watch offers a bevy of small artistic flourishes including a uniquely patterned guilloche dial and a highly stylized Arabic numeral display that is raised off the surface of the dial. Measuring 44mm wide (1.73 inches), the large, tall rectangular case makes a statement, but it conforms easily to different wrist sizes. The black dial includes rose gold-tone Arabic numerals, three-handed movement, and a date window sitting at 3 o'clock. The GMT subdial sits below 12 o'clock while the power reserve function sits above 6 o'clock and shows how much of the 40 hours of reserve power the automatic movement has remaining. Other features include a curved sapphire crystal for excellent scratch resistance and water resistance to 50 meters (165 feet)--suitable for swimming but not for diving. An automatic (or self-winding) watch is fitted with a device (rotor) that automatically winds the spring by using the force of gravity. It needs no battery, but it will stop if you have been physically inactive for an extended period of time--as long as you're moving, the watch will stay powered. Swiss watchmaker Abraham-Louis Perrelet invented the self-winding mechanism in 1770. It worked on the same principle as a modern pedometer, and was designed to wind as the owner walked. Gevril focuses on the details, including raised, hand-painted numbers and CNC-machined Wesselton diamonds. The Gevril watch company was begun by Jacques Gevril in the mid-1700s in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland's center of watch-making for centuries. He was a sought-after master of horology, and he created his first chronometer in 1743 and his first repetition dial in 1744. Most notably, he was called upon by the King of Spain in 1758 to produce a personal timepiece, which went over so well that Gevril was appointed as Royal Swiss Watchmaker to the Spanish Crown. The Gevril family tradition of watchmaking was passed onto Jacques's son, Moyse Gevril, and in 1784 he achieved the status of Master Clockmaker. During the 1800s, the Gevril family expanded their art to include enameling as well as the creation of dials for their watches. Gevril timepieces are displayed in museums across Europe--most notably the Museum Geneve and the Rolex Museum (where a Gevril pocket watch is displayed in the collection personally selected by the Wilsdorf family, the founder of Rolex). The company was purchased by Samuel Friedmann in 2000, who believed the Gevril name represented an ideal combination of history and future potential. Today's signature Avenue of Americas line is based on a case design from the 1920, which was discovered after going through Gevril's raft of historical documents and design books. It has a retro look, but is updated with a bevelled dial with raised, hand-painted numbers and straight chrono pushers for a contemporary feel. Creating a Gevril timepiece is exhaustive, and Gevril expends years into the design and manufacture of its rare and enduring timepiece collections. It manufactures only limited edition collections, with 6,000 Gevril watches created each year and each line limited to 500 (stainless steel) or 100 (gold) pieces. The company also sources only the best materials and accoutrements, including 316L stainless steel, natural mother-of-pearl dials, Wesselton diamonds calibrated by CNC machines and Louisiana crocodile skin.
