New Grip Watches With Chronograph Function
Gucci is expanding the Grip line with two new chronograph timepieces.
Together with the chronograph function, the tachymeter enables the wearer to measure the time it takes to cover one kilometer. This adds attitude and masculine style to the watch. Both watches feature a 40mm case. Two windows on the dial indicate the hour and minute.
The Grip watch is inspired by the world of skateboarding. Its name recalls the way the rider’s sneakers stick to the grip tape on a skateboard.
One edition showcases a steel case and bracelet. The chronograph function is introduced through a hand, which is finished with the Interlocking G motif.
The other edition brings together a steel case and a black rubber strap showing the Interlocking G symbol. A red dot, which moves around the edge of the dial, forms the chronograph function. The Grip chrono watches are water resistant to 30 meters.

There is only one way to make traditional Chinese “la mian” noodles – and that that’s by skillfully hand-pulling the dough, which can often stretch over a meter long! This process creates thick strands that are cut up, quickly boiled just for a minute or two, and then served al dente-style with a choice of toppings. The impressive length of these la mian noodles actually symbolizes longevity – hence why they’re particular popular during the Chinese Lunar New Year. At Dynasty restaurant, Centara Grand at CentralWorld in Bangkok, you can order a freshly-prepared serving of la mian all year round. Choose to have them in a broth or without (‘dry”), with our signature toppings including premium ingredients like Cantonese-style prawn with La Mian and Sichuan sauce or Wagyu eef La Mian “Hong Kong style”. Special la mian dishes to look out for on Dynasty’s menu include: “Tom Yum” with sea bass “Ma La” with spicy numbing Sichuan pepper sauce “Zha Jiang Sauce” with minced pork and fermented soy beans For more information or reservations, please contact +66 (0) 2 100 6255 or email email@example.com
