GMT Italia’s Jacopo Corvo: 5 Insights into Italian Watch Culture | Revolution Top Retailers | EP 4

Great Masters of Time (GMT) Italia – Revolution Top Retailers 2024

GMT Italia has established a strong and enduring presence in the luxury watch industry, with its roots dating back to the 1950s. The company was founded by Giorgio Corvo, who opened a watch distribution company representing prestigious brands like Jaeger-LeCoultre. Over the years, GMT Italia has evolved into a symbol of modern high-end independent watchmaking. This evolution perfectly reflects the company’s distinctive and unconventional approach to luxury watch retail. By embracing non-traditional methods and pushing boundaries, GMT Italia has solidified its reputation as a leader in the industry.

In 2007, Great Masters of Time (GMT) opened its first boutique in Porto Cervo. The purpose was to curate and showcase a diverse range of non-traditional watches, highlighting the mechanical intricacies and unique, elegant styles crafted by the Maison’s ingenious Masters of Time.

In February 2010, GMT expanded its concept by establishing a multi-brand boutique in Corso Magenta 11, situated in Milan’s historic center. This boutique quickly became a premier destination for discovering high-end independent watchmaking and international jewelry brands in the city.

In 2021, GMT further expanded its presence with the inauguration of a new flagship boutique in Milan’s fashion district, specifically located at via della Spiga 25.

Revolution Editor-at-Large Eleonor Picciotto will be joined by Jacopo Corvo, Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) of GMT Italia, to provide comprehensive insights into the Italian watch culture and collecting. They will discuss their early vision for independent brands and their efforts in establishing a world-renowned and respected institution for watches for three generation.
