Gucci has been noted for making handbags but one thing that the company makes that many people are not aware of is men's watches. One of the men's watches that the company makes is its 8600 model watch. This is a watch that features a variety of fashionable features that make this a memorable luxury watch.

The first thing that stands out in my mind is the strap. This is a honey gold alligator strap that is comfortable and soft without chafing the user's arm. It uses a buckle clasp to keep it secure. The strap was easy to adjust and was very comforting to the arm. The material does not work with any golden items but the coloring that is used on the strap is good enough to where it can create a golden type of appearance.

The dial on the watch is an appealing section to see. This is a dial that features a standard analog display with traditional black and white hands. This is all along a slight rectangle shape that is very appealing to the eyes. The automatic movements of the hands make this a great feature to see.

There are actually three small dials that work alongside the main dial. These dials work with the month and the seconds that are on the watch. This is especially useful for any user. In fact, the month dial works very well with the standard calendar day display feature on the side of the watch.

Three different controls are used on the right end of the dial. These controls work to adjust the time and the calendar date. The fact that these controls are separate from each other is very beneficial because it allows all of one's materials to be easily controlled on the watch.

Swiss crystal quartz is used to keep all of these features protected. This material was able to handle all scratch tests and was comfortably secure during the entire process. There was no problem at all with this part of the watch.

This watch is rather expensive just like other things that Gucci would have to offer. The 8600 men's watch was about $1300 on the market but it was found for this test at $1000. This is on par with many other luxury watches that have similar appearances to it though. The fact that it can be found on sale as much as it was here only makes this even better.
