The new Gucci Grammy Special Edition Interlocking watch is a further celebration of the partnership between the House and The Recording Academy®, now in its fourth year. The watch is a variant of the Interlocking collection, which features a sleek and modern take on the House’s GG interlocking motif. Available in two sizes (42mm and37mm), the watch comes with a black polished and brushed PVD case, a snapped case back with Grammy Awards® logo and a yellow sun-brushed dial made with Grammium.

The lengthy process of creating a Grammy Award is derived from a tradition that is hundreds of years old. The statuette is cast out of Grammium — a custom alloy, developed by John Billings, the craftsman who creates, by hand, the lustrous gold gramophone statue that is presented to Grammy recipients.
