GIBERG GENTLEMEN'S BRACELETS &
A few months have passed since I first wore the Giberg Gentlemen’s Bracelets alongside the Alagaro All Black timepiece. As you will have seen on Instagram, I’ve been extremely busy; travelling from Monaco to Switzerland, Kazakhstan to Los Angeles, and even the Cayman Islands to mention a few places where Giberg’s exquisite jewellery has accompanied every step of my travels, and so I thought I’d share their craftsmanship with you!
Giberg Haute Horlogerie was founded by Andreas Altmann in 2018 in the town of Biel – renowned for its watchmaking heritage. Altmann has amassed 40 years’ worth of experience in the watch and jewellery industry. By using his knowledge alongside a team of highly skilled engineers and designers, Giberg creates exceptional timepieces which combine traditional watchmaking techniques with avant-garde design. The movements are developed in-house and are engineered from the ground up. Whilst remaining faithful to traditional watchmaking within, the exterior of Giberg’s pieces are crafted from precious metals adorned with expertly set gemstones. The atelier also manufactures custom made “objets d’art” as well as jewellery for men and women, which are also made using the finest metals. The versatility of these bracelets really allowed me to elevate my style wherever I travelled, as I’ll explain below!
Let’s start in the French Riviera (pre-quarantine of course). I was driving a 1968 Ford Mustang along the coast, whilst dressed in an all-black 3-piece suit (clearly I associate with John Wick!).
On my wrist I had the Alagaro All Black timepiece from Giberg Haute Horlogerie. A perfect match for my attire. The watch is highly limited and is completely customisable – as with everything else in the Giberg collection. It features a skeletonised movement with a sapphire crystal caseback, allowing an unobstructed view of the beautiful in-house Trivelis 6118 (a manually-wound movement, developed and engineered by Giberg exclusively for its own watch collection). The Alagaro’s stunning precision is thanks to the flying tourbillon at 6 o’clock which can be seen in all its glory.
Alongside the watch I was also wearing the All-Black Gentleman’s Bracelet. As with the watch, the bracelet is made of white gold (30 gr. for the watch, 35 gr. for the bracelet) but finished with a black PVD coating. The bracelet has a great wrist presence and is very well-balanced, thanks to the highly durable rubber construction. The top is adorned with 40 brilliant-cut black diamonds which add just the right amount of bling to my otherwise stealth-like outfit. As well as being comfortable the bracelet is very secure, featuring a magnetic locking system on the rear which can be made-to-measure during the customisation process. This ensures a perfect fit.
Despite going for an all-black look, I couldn’t resist adding a bit of colour! I did this in style thanks to Giberg’s 18k yellow-gold edition of the Gentleman’s Bracelet.
Enough about my outfit, it’s time to drift !
I love the ease with which I can match the bracelets to any outfit – smart or casual – and the range of metals provide a great array of choices depending on my mood and occasion.
Further from home, in the snowy town of Crans-Montana, Switzerland, I enjoyed some time at the prestigious Ultima Collection Chalets. During the day I opted to stack the white and yellow gold bracelets, matching perfectly with the snowy surroundings as well as my beige overcoat.
In the evening however, I switched out the white gold for the black PVD edition, which complemented my tuxedo for a more dinner-appropriate look. Regardless of the bracelet combination, my style was elevated when behind the wheel of the new Aston Martin DBS.
Another destination change takes me to the Cayman Islands, this time staying at the Ritz-Carlton. Here I enjoyed some R&R – riding the waves aboard a catamaran – whilst also attending suited dinners. Once again, my bracelets from Giberg showed their versatility, matching all of the environments I was in and the multiple outfits I wore.
Of all the places I visited, the bracelets felt most at home in Los Angeles. The laid-back vibe, Rodeo Drive, and a Lamborghini Huracan Spyder were all enjoyed whilst wearing Giberg jewellery.
Once quarantine is over, you can be sure to see me enjoying these jewellery pieces whilst discovering many new destinations!
