Gruppo Gamma's Vanguard collection was first introduced in 2014. In 2018, we're pleased to announce new variants of the Mk IV Vanguard. The new Vanguard has a case diameter of 44mm and plenty of wrist presence. Wth a slimmer side profile than its predecessors, the new Vanguard oozes charm from every angle.
The new Vanguard inherits the same design cues of its predecessor while having a much more distinctive character. Signature styling cues include the extractable crown guard and case side guard. The watch case is made of surgical grade stainless steel in brushed or aged steel finish, or marine grade phosphor bronze (CuSn8), fitted with double-domed sapphire crystal and engineered to achieve a depth rating of 200 m/ 660 ft. The timepiece is fitted with a premium Italian leather strap, handmade in Florence, by Simona Di Stefano.
The Vanguard is built to the highest standards. It is powered by the ETA 2824-2, a self-winding calibre from the world's largest Swiss movement manufacturer. The markers on the dial are filled generously with Swiss Super-LumiNova of the highest grade, providing darkness visibility like no other.
For those who prefer a more old-school look there's the Vanguard Retro, a variant that has stayed faithful to the minimalist design of the earliest Gruppo Gamma timepieces. It is intended to be a throwback to Gruppo Gamma’s formative years, and the dial design and layout are reminiscent of the discontinued Genesis and Ascent collections and the earliest Vanguard models. The Vanguard Retro is available in stainless steel and CuSn8 bronze.
