Excelsior! Not just a motto, a movement. Gevril’s Swiss Automatic Watch from the Excelsior Collection is a superior watch for the aspirational man who never rests on his laurels.
Latin for “ever upward”, Excelsior is for the forward-thinker, the mover and doer. Full of ambition and superior quality, the 49mm round satin gold, rose gold or stainless-steel bezel is polished to perfection and capped by a top ring. The sunray dial, central figure of it all, showcases indexes and a push pull crown. Always growing, always developing and never settling, this timepiece is the gold standard of watches featuring Swiss automatic movement and a day indicator at 12 O'clock with an exhibition case back. The ambitious need not for succession with a timepiece like Excelsior.
It doesn’t take a lot of bells and whistles to be the best – it takes drive, desire, intention and purpose. Strive for more – Excelsior.

The history of Gevril watches is a story that combines an illustrious watchmaking past with an innovative modern revitalization. The company origins date back to the mid-18th century and Jacques Gevril, the gifted Swiss watchmaker who is the founder and inspiration of the eponymous brand.
Today the Gevril name endures thanks to the vision of a Swiss horologist and businessman who lifted the brand to its current heights as an established Swiss watch company.
Jacques Gevril was an up-and-coming watch and clockmaker in 1758 when he accompanied his colleague Pierre Jaquet-Droz on a trip to Madrid. There, the men presented a selection of complex musical automata to King Ferdinand VI. The king was so impressed he bought every piece.
Jaquet-Droz returned home the following year but Gevril remained in Spain to fortify his reputation as a master watchmaker and was appointed Royal Watchmaker by the king. Gevril lived in Spain for many years thereafter, refining his craft and producing watches for the Crown.
Gevril’s traditions were survived by future generations of Gevril watchmakers including Moyse Gevril and Daniel Gevril, who built their reputations on horological innovations and artistic enameling techniques.
Today Gevril pocket watches are highly collectible: one is even located in the Muséum Genève and another is part of the collection of the Wilsdorf family, founders of Rolex.
