Designer Fashion Padlocks

This New Gucci Padlock Features a Pearl Watch Inside of It

— February 23, 2018 — Luxury
This Gucci padlock is the most recent addition to the designer label's selection of unconventional accessories.

Simply called the 'Padlock,' the green and red security device takes inspiration from the label's stunning watches, which make use of pearl and sapphire crystal glass. The miniature clock face is featured in the middle of the lock, and can be twisted from side to side so that the time can easily be changed and the batteries replaced.

The green and red on the padlock is balanced out with accents of gold and white, with the gold featured on the outside of the watch, and on the top of the lock. The white clock face has a marbled finish to it, adding a final touch of luxuriousness to the accessory. Currently, the Gucci Padlock is available from retailers like Selfridges for $685 USD.
