    Gucci? What's inside, getting a deal?

    While it isn't so much a watch enthusiast's thing, my wife spotted a Gucci watch that she really liked. ( the Signoria 116 line ). It says "Swiss Quartz" so it must be good, right?

    Just curious, what's inside of it and where does one go to score a good deal on something like that, especially if an extra link is also needed for the band?

    It's the policy of just about every brand for two free links. Gucci is a quality brand for what it is, check around.

    I have a much older GUCCI from 1987. Has swiss quartz. I have never let this watch stop running except to change the battery. Still runs like a champ although it is pretty much only worn rarely.
    I still think it's a nice looking watch. Very classy though a bit out of date.

    Watchbreath, what do you think about some of these fashion brands going high-end these days. You've probably heard about Gucci revamping their line. There are others too, unfortunately, my mind has gone blank!

    Gucci a few years back put an ETA 7001 (5600) into a pretty nice watch
    and it was a flop. It's weird, about an hour ago I was sitting in Starbucks
    and my old Swiss Army (now Gucci) rep walked right pass me. It took me
    a few minutes to remember who she was, dang. I miss being out of the
    loop, so I can only guess there're trying to broaden their appeal. I always
    liked the 8505, a very nice looking watch. Then they just have to do
    something to justify to the public the prices increases. Many people are
    clueless to exchange rates. "Why, just five years ago I bought one just like
    that one for $300 and now it's 900"?! As it turns out, it's more like eight.
