Blue watches were the highlight of Baselworld 2014

Admiral’s Cup AC One 45 Tides
An icon among sea-lovers, this timepiece comes with tides indicator. The case is titanium, with a blue dial and blue bracelet. This model with its mechanical movement driving indications of the time and strength of the tides, the lunar cycle, as well as the strength of the currents and the height of the tides is a unique complication. The watch has a power reserve of 42 hours.


GC-3 Blue Dial
This bold and masculine chronograph stands out through highprecision technical feature. The deep blue dial is attached to a sporty steel case. The rose gold accents on the dial and the studs on the bezel add to the sporty chic look. The three-eye chronograph with a centre stop second is equipped with a precise Swiss Made movement. A deep blue croco-embossed leather bracelet with deployment buckle gives the finishing touch to this timepiece.

Guess Blue Debut

A combination of textures, treatments and distinguishing blue colour guarantee this piece makes a fashion declaration.

Brand Speak
2013 has seen a single digit growth for both Guess and Gc across Asia, China, Middle East, Singapore and Europe, too.
A typical Guess watches customer is young, sexy and fashionable. They wear their watches as accessories and not as time-telling devices. Whereas, Gc watches are meant for the young fashionistas who have refined tastes and prefer a quality product without compromising on the price. 
In 2014, we plan to introduce better quality and timeless products. Blue is the new black— it is the colour for Guess and Gc wtaches. This year all our communication will revolve around the
colour blue— TVC, print ads, displays etc. I get great ideas from my partners who come to the Basel Fair. The trend is to go smaller in size, for ladies watches. Animal print on fashion runaways is making news and that’s how we decided on the Africa Dream collection. Check your closest and go put there a gift yourself a blue watch!
