Gucci Marina Chain Collection. The Marina Chain, a traditional Gucci symbol adorning accessories and jewelry, is a collection of stylish timepieces featuring the iconic anchor chain sign. With its rounded links, this unmistakable signature punctuates the smooth bracelet, embracing the oval case and finishing with a clasp shaped like a leather belt buckle.. . The Marina Chain: A Gucci Icon. Guccio Gucci opened a leather goods workshop and a small luggage store in his hometown, Florence. Within a few years, the label enjoyed considerable success, as it attracted a sophisticated international clientele fond of the collection of bags, trunks, and accessories that were inspired by the refined aesthetics of nobility, including the equestrian world, and the world of sailing. The Marina Chain motif was inspired in the 1960s by the world of yachting, one of the favorite pastimes of the Florentine clientele of Guccio Gucci.. Models and Versions. The Marina Chain watch, introduced at the 2009 Spring Summer Gucci Women’s Cruise fashion show, is available in two sizes and a rich choice of materials: steel, steel and ceramic, and steel and leather.
