While the original Arena watches were crafted in steel, the models introduced afterwards have been manufactured from a variety of innovative metals. The Arena Biretro and Arena Chrono Quattro Retro models feature a powerfully designed case, 45mm in diameter, acquiring a new outfit every year since 2005. Each version makes one immediately feel its irresistible casual charm, with a case crafted from ultra-light titanium, or a luxurious combination of materials: a gold case with its fluted middle, and with a tantalum bezel.
In 2008, Gerald Genta used red gold for the case that strengthened the watch’s warm and eccentric charm. The dial touches imagination by the brand’s signature complications.
- jumping hours through an aperture at 12 o’clock,
- a 210 degree retrograde minutes arc in the upper part of the dial positioned between 8 and 4 o’clock,
- a 180 degree retrograde date arc on the lower part of the dial between 4 and 8 o’clock.
Arena Chrono Quattro Retro reflects Gerald Genta’s remarkable expertise in the field of watchmaking complications. The watches have smartly united a jumping hour with four retrograde functions:
- minutes featured at 12 o’clock,
- bidirectional date display at 6 o’clock,
- a 12-hour counter at 9 o’clock,
- a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock.
The sophisticated multi-layer dial of the Gerald Genta watch is created in silvery grey, anthracite and black versions, demonstrating red gold accents to match the case. The bright red hands provide great readability.
