Clean, essential geometrical forms characterise one of the latest new developments from Salvatore Ferragamo for Spring/Summer 2022: the Ferragamo Essential line of timepieces. A name that is a declaration of intent: to rediscover a modern minimalism inspired by purity and simplicity.
The dimensions of the baguette case have been reduced to 14×33 mm, while sinuous curves and braids give way to right angles in line with the trend in watch design already seen last season in the Ferragamo Square Ingot model. From square to rectangle: the new forms produce a harmonious, sophisticated linearity.
The Gancini symbol is back, though very discreetly. The rationalisation of its shape transforms it into a decorative feature on the mother-of-pearl dial, at 6 o’clock, while a small index at 12 o’clock draws the eye towards the Ferragamo logo, hallmark of all the Florentine maison’s timepieces, just like the red cabochon on the crown.
The linear geometry of the Ferragamo Essential line is also reflected in the horizontal link bracelet, an alternative to the Saffiano leather strap.
