History Behind the Gaga Milano Manuale 48mm Collection

Founded in 2004, Gaga Milano captured the hearts of watch enthusiasts with their eccentric designs that display elements from the old-time classics. And the big face Manuale 48mm collection is no exception. Available in various cases yet still sporting the house style, this fancy series reflects the fashion-forward country it originated from. 

With a daring size and colors, the Italian brand blends these unmistakable elements with the timeless screw-down crown of a pocket watch. Mixing vintage and modern details, these dress watches are an exemplary combination of pocket watch and wrist watch, offering a contemporary timepiece with a classic feature. In addition, some models of the mechanical watch collection are paired with hypoallergenic rubber straps for a comfortable accessory.

But this series goes beyond its looks. These luxury pieces are powered by Swiss made mechanical manual mechanisms and are solely crafted in their research and development manufacture in Switzerland. 

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

Ever wonder what’s the difference between the Manuale 48mm and Manuale 40mm? For starters, Gaga Milano 40mm luxury watches are equipped with quartz movement and get their power from a battery. Meanwhile, as previously mentioned, the 48mm’s are powered by mechanical hand-winding movement.

Chic and sophisticated, the smaller luxury watches are mostly made for the ladies while the big face timepieces cater to both men and women. Apart from their diameter, both collections also vary in the thickness of their cases. The 48mm one has an extent of 16mm while the 40mm is slimmer at 12 to 13mm deep. 

These collections of the popular Italian brand may both be called Manuale but they are different in a lot of elements. But one thing that’s common between these two is that they’re both exceptionally crafted.
