Like a moment of solitude amongst the chaos, Gevril’s High Line Collection is an automatic timepiece with historical roots and sound modern design. Named after Manhattan’s historical High Line park – a nearly 1.5 mile elevated sanctuary of greenery built on a historic steel railway – this collection inspires the cool, calm and collected feel of a walk in the park.
With clean lines and an expert use of space, the High Line collection features Swiss automatic movement encased by 43mm of pure stainless steel. The unencumbered watch face in Forest Green, Navy, Black, Brown or Silver implies that simplicity well constructed is not to be underestimated. The sunray dial, an ode to the outdoor greenway, and a dark colored bezel reminiscent of the original West Side railway add solid touches to structural integrity. Numbers 6 and 12 on the dial denote the middle and end of the path while the date viewing window at 3 evokes memories of overlooking 10th Avenue.
A modern take with historical references, this collection is elevated and understated – if relaxed and sharp were a watch, the High Line would be it. Because architecture doesn’t have to be complicated to be monumental: the High Line collection.
