VICENTERRA GMT-1 T1 5555
Swiss luxury watch brand VICENTERRA is introducing its GMT-1model, the T1 5555. The GMT-1 was in fact the first model in the series intended for launch in the early days of VICENTERRA’s journey. It is now finally making its appearance just in time to celebrate the brand’s 5th anniversary. This spring, VICENTERRA presents its first edition of the GMT-1 series, the T1 5555.
From a design perspective, the GMT-1 maintains the spirit of the previously released GMT-3 while offering customers an alternative to the retrograde display. The GMT-1 carries a spherical date aperture at 3 o’clock, a metaphorical representation of the moon, positioned between the earth and the sun.
The latter are mounted on the arched bridge positioned between 12 and 5 o’clock. The GMT indicator can be found on the remaining bridge positioned between 12 and 7 o’clock. As always, special care is given to each component of VICENTERRA timepieces. The open dial allows maximum visibility of the model’s intricate details and elaborate finishes.
The different elements making up the GMT-1 are housed and protected in a steel case, maintaining VICENTERRA’s unique silhouette. Brushed and polished exterior surfaces are beautifully balanced with this model’s sheen and shot-peened interior surfaces.
