GC Watches GC-3 Papaya

The poet Paul Eluard wrote that the earth is blue like an orange, a famous line that Gc reinterprets with considerable panache in a sporty and colourful version of its iconic Gc-3 watch. Coated with a deep ocean blue, its sophisticated 12-sided bezel featuring oversized screws highlights the vibrant papaya-orange shade of the dial. A daring and energetic combination that forcefully accentuates the taut lines and perfect proportions of the sturdy stainless steel case. This model’s inherently performance-driven spirit is also expressed through the exceptional precision of the quartz chronograph movement capable of measuring time to the nearest tenth of a second. On the wrists of men keenly attentive to trends and uncompromisingly demanding when it comes to the efficiency of their timepiece, the Gc-3 Papaya asserts itself as a true style signature. A cool, sporty design and impeccable reliability: Gc introduces a chronograph clearly built for action.
