Gucci Pantheon XLarge

Gucci has launched a new diver watch in the Pantheon XLarge. There are a number of styles available for this model. The difference is the colour of the bezel, sweep second hand and strap. There are 3 basic bezel colour; light blue with blue, blue and red and red and green.

As can be seen from the photographs below, the bezel colour is divided into a quarter and three quarters. In the case of the light blue and blue, the blue covers the first quarter of the dial (0 to 15 minutes) and the light blue the other three quarters. In the blue and red bezel, the blue is the first quarter and red for the rest and for the red and green bezel, green is the first quarter and red the rest.

As for the choice of straps (rubber with ardillon buckle), there are 3 colours available; black, red and white. Evidently, you cannot choose the colour of the straps as it follows the bezel colour. The selection is as follows:

Light blue/ blue: black strap
Blue/ red: red strap
Red/ green: white strap

However I see from the Gucci site, that is not 100% correct. Sadly I cannot find a photograph of the blue/ red with red strap version.

The dial is black and has a subtle 'GG' decoration. It has luminous hour index with Arabic numerals at the 12, 3, 6 and 9 o'clock position. The hands are luminous as well (except the second hand). The second hand for the light blue/ blue is blue in colour. For the rest, the second hand is red.

The case back is decorated with the Gucci crest and logo. The inside of the strap has the 'GG' logo as well.

All the watches share the same basic specifications:

Functions: hours, minutes, seconds and date (at 4 o'clock position)

Bezel: unidirectional, 120 clicks
