2000 Gevril Tribeca Chronograph
The Gevril Tribeca, is probably the most famous homage to the single most famous watch of all time, the Rolex Paul Neman Daytona. When Gevril created the Tribeca in 1999 the goal was to create a fun watch that appealed to the enthusiast who couldn’t afford a Paul Newman could wear while at the same time wanting to build something of the highest quality and, from a sense of detail and dimension, totally faithful to the original.
The Gevril Tribeca uses a Hesalite acrylic crystal just like in the original watch and incredibly, the bracelet is highly reminiscent of the original and, if anything, features a slightly wider and chunkier clasp. additionally, the Gevril features an ETA 2824 paired with a Dubois Depraz chronograph module which is the identical module seen in an Audemars Piquet Royal Oak Offshore.
What's cool about the Gevril Tribeca is that it engages both actual Paul Newman owners and the growing collectors who want to approach the design and passion of the real deal in a way that is completely attainable without sacrificing quality, form, and or function.
