Gaga Milano Manuale 40mm Watches: Queens of Affordable Luxury Watches

The only accessories worthy of being dubbed as the queens of luxury timepieces are Gaga Milano Manuale 40mm watches. These avant garde watches from the Italian watch brand Gaga Milano have a peculiar crown placement and lug shape that resembles the appearance of a queen. To elaborate, the crowns are at the 12 o’clock position of the timepieces’ heads, just like how royals wear their crowns. Also, the cases have top and bottom lugs that fan out into inverted trapezoids. The lugs are shaped like Elizabethan dress collars, symbols of high status for female royals back in the 16th and 17th centuries. These explain why the watches are seen as royal style-wise.

Some watch models are made more prestigious through the integration of precious gemstones or crystals. Popular embellishments are diamonds and sapphires that pave the timepieces’ dials or accentuate the cases or numeral indexes.

The Gaga Milano Manuale 40mm Wonder Woman 75th Anniversary Watch, introduced in 2017, is a special-edition timepiece made to represent strong women who can also be considered queens. It features star-shaped stud indexes and red, blue, and white precious stones that form the emblem of Wonder Woman, the DC superheroine and icon of femininity it is named after.

How much is a Gaga Milano Manuale 40mm watch?

You can expect to shell out approximately $600 to $40,000 USD on a Gaga Milano Manuale 40mm watch. The price depends on the type of materials used to make the timepiece and how complicated the design is. Limited editions, which are grandiose because of their rose gold cases and gemstone embellishments, are the models with the highest value while steel versions are the most affordable releases.

Prices for the Gaga Milano Manuale 40mm Steel Series

The Gaga Milano Manuale 40mm Steel watches are the collection’s casual timepieces that are priced for about $600 USD. The watches are basic, with no complications on their clean Mother-of-Pearl dials, but are unique in the market. That is because of the top crown, Elizabethan collar-style lugs, and quirky Arabic numeral font style.

Also, the timepieces’ straps that feature alligator skin patterns come in various colors. Among the hue options are royal colors red and blue, and neutral colors white and black. Steel watches, such as the Gaga Milano Manuale 40mm Ref. 5020.5 and Gaga Milano Manuale 40mm Ref. 5020.4 that are in the said neutral hues, are some of the series’ in-demand models because they are good to go with any outfit.

Prices for the Gaga Milano Manuale 40mm Rose Gold-Plated Series

Rose gold-plated Gaga Milano Manuale 40mm timepieces adopt the same clean style as the steel models but look more premium. While the appearance is more regal, the price remains affordable at $800 USD.

One of the watches’ variations, the Gaga Milano Manuale 40mm Rose Gold-Plated Ref. 5021.1, is sought after by collectors because its design is the most queen-like out of all Manuale 40mm models. The timepiece has multicolor numeral indexes and a fuchsia-toned strap that complement the rose gold motif of the signature crown, case, and lugs.

There is a version that looks as prestigious as Ref. 5021.1 but has a toned-down hue, the Gaga Milano Manuale 40mm Rose Gold-Plated Ref. 5021.2. The watch highlights gilt numeral indexes that blend in well with the color of the case and a brown leather strap with an alligator skin pattern.

Prices for the Gaga Milano Manuale 40mm Floating Series 

The Manuale 40mm Floating timepieces are among Gaga Milano’s latest watch series. Thewatches are the first releases from the brand to be adorned with moving diamond-cut crystals. The precious fragments are scattered between the dials and their transparent glasses. They seem to float when the wearer moves, hence the series name. With this unique feature, the timepiece costs $800 to $6,700 USD.

The most affordable models from the series, including the $800 USD Gaga Milano Manuale 40mm Floating Watch Ref. 5020.FL.02 and Ref. 5021.FL.01, adopt plain steel and rose gold-plated cases. The priciest is the $6,700 USD Gaga Milano Manuale 40mm Floating Watch Ref.5020.ED104JW1F, a steel variant with a diamond-embellished bezel.

Prices for the Gaga Milano Manuale 40mm Stones Series

The Manuale 40mm Stone is another slew of Gaga Milano watches with a signature look. What sets the $3,200 to $3,500 USD timepieces apart from the rest of the models from the collection is their quirky numeral indexes lined with precious stones.

The crystals or gemstones formed in the shape of numeral indexes are diamonds or sapphires. The embellishments’ hue matches the overall motif. For instance, black diamonds are added to models with black straps, and white diamonds or multi-color sapphires are integrated into watches with white straps. 

The Gaga Milano Manuale 40mm Stones Ref. 5021.ST.05 watch follows the series’ design convention. It has red sapphire crystals on its Arabic numeral indexes that complement its red leather strap.

Prices for the Gaga Milano Manuale 40mm Diamonds Series

The Gaga Milano Manuale 40mm Diamonds watches are the most elegant contemporary models in the collection, which is why the price range is $20,000 to $40,000 USD.

As the series name implies, the watches are decorated with diamonds. Pave versions are fully covered with crystals on the face while regular variants have embellishments on the case and bezel. The most expensive timepieces from the series, the Gaga Milano Manuale 40mm Diamonds Ref. GR49.GRLADY and Gaga Milano Manuale 40mm Diamonds Ref. GR49.RWLADY watches, even combine diamonds with green tsavorite and multicolor sapphires, respectively.

Born to be Unique: History Behind the Gaga Milano Manuale 40mm

The Gaga Milano Manuale 40mm watch takes after the style of the brand’s oldest collection that was launched in 2005. Back then, the timepieces already had the crowns at the 12 o’clock position and the peculiar Arabic numeral indexes.

The unique aspects of the watches, which are kept consistent until today, were born out of the innovative ideas of Gaga Milano founder Ruben Tomella. The watch connoisseur wanted to show that the brand is a trendsetter and not simply a trend follower. As a result, Tomella thought of strapping pocket watches to the wrist during the company’s early days and improved the concept through the years.

Given that vintage pocket watches were the inspiration, it is no surprise that Gaga Milano Manuale timepieces have had big dials ever since they came out. What is great is that despite the large build, the 40mm wristwatches are nice to wear because they are as creative and stylish as the retro handheld timepieces.

Gaga Milano Manuale 40mm vs. Gaga Milano Manuale 48mm

When it comes to collection popularity, Gaga Milano Manuale 40mm watches are in a head-to-head battle with their 48mm counterparts.

Why are Gaga Milano Manuale 48mm watches popular like the 40mm timepieces? The most noticeable reason is that the 48mm releases almost have the same design as the 40mm versions. The Gaga Milano Manuale 48mm watches likewise feature 12 o’clock crowns, inverted trapezoid lugs, and quirky Arabic numeral indexes. They also come in steel and rose gold cases with leather straps.

While there are many similarities, there are differences that give the Gaga Milano Manuale 48mm timepieces their own “personality”. Those differences are the mechanical movement, the seconds sub-dial at 6 o’clock, the dominance of black and brown hues, and the use of non-numeral indexes such as skulls and stars for some models.

Which is better, the Gaga Milano Manuale 40mm or Gaga Milano Manuale 48mm? The answer to the question depends on the needs of the buyer. If the client is looking for feminine quartz watches, Manuale 40mm versions have the upper hand because of their queen motif. If unisex or men’s mechanical timepieces, then the 48mm variants might be better because of their darker tones and more technical build inside and out.
