From modest beginnings at the end of the 19th century, the Gucci Company became one of the worldâ€™s most successful manufacturers of high-end leather goods, clothing, and other fashion products. As an immigrant in Paris and then London, working in exclusive hotels, young Guccio Gucci (1881â€“1953) was impressed with the luxurious luggage he saw sophisticated guests bring with them. Upon returning to his birthplace of Florence, a city distinguished for high-quality materials and skilled artisans, he established a shop in 1920 that sold fine leather goods with classic styling. Although Gucci organized his workrooms for industrial methods of production, he maintained traditional aspects of fabrication. Initially Gucci employed skilled workers in basic Florentine leather crafts, attentive to finishing. With expansion, machine stitching was a production method that supported construction.
Aldo and Rodolfo Gucci further expanded the companyâ€™s horizons in 1953 by establishing offices in New York City. Film stars and jet-set travelers to Italy during the 1950s and 1960s brought their glamour to Florence, turning Gucciâ€™s merchandise into international status symbols. Movie stars posed in Gucciâ€™s clothing, accessories, and footwear for lifestyle magazines around the world, contributing to the companyâ€™s growing reputation.
Today, Gucci applies the attention to detail and quality craftsmanship it is known for to making some of the best luxury timepieces. LuxuryTickers is proud to offer a wide selection of Gucci timepieces for even its most discerning clients.essories, and footwear for lifestyle magazines around the world, contributing to the companyâ€™s growing reputation.
