Gerald Genta Octo Place de l'Etoile Watch
The Octo Place de l'Etoile is a new stunningly designed timepiece from Gerald Genta. The timepiece has been inspired by Paris and its renowned Place de l'Etoile that surrounds the Arc de Triomphe, from where twelve famous Parisian avenues extend forth, forming a rigorously symmetrical pattern. One of the avenues is the Champs Elysees.

The daring jewellery watch has majestically united shapes, colours and materials, making one feel the brand's avant-garde spirit. The avenues stretch in a vanishing perspective in the direction of the jumping hour aperture that was deliberately positioned at 11 o'clock. The avenues alternate between diamond-paved and enamel-coated motifs, extending over onto the bezel, clearly inspired by the cobbled streets of Paris.

The Gerald Genta Octo Place de l'Etoile watch accommodates a self-winding movement. The mechanism provides the jumping hour display found at an unexpected angle, as well as the retrograde minutes inscribed over a 180 degree arc foundon the bezel.

The innovative jewelry watch is housed in a considerably sized octagonal red gold case that measures 39 mm in diameter.

The strap of the Octo Place de l'Etoile watch is worth special attention. Its color matches the mauve dial. The strap is produced from Aqualino, a watersnake leather featuring scales reminding paving stones.

The Gerald Genta timepiece is also available in all black-and-white version: the white gold case, and dial featuring white diamond and black enamel motif, secured to the wrist on a black crocodile leather strap. This variation, introduced in 2007, became the first to pay tribute to Paris, having marked the inaguration of Gerald Genta's flagship store located in Rue de la Paix.

Mickey Tokyo Resort Watch from Gerald Genta
The relationship between Disney and watch manufacturer Gerald Genta has been lasting enough for the latter to release chic watches with Disney character - mostly Mickey - as a theme.

This novelty was created to mark the 25th Anniversary of the Disney Tokyo resort.

An iconic red seconds hand moves around the dial. As for a retrograde date indicator, in the lower half of the watch there is another Mickey, pointing to it. A “retrograde” component can be found in almost every Gerald Genta timepiece.

Gerald Genta Offers Gefica New Timepiece
Inspired by the jazz beat, the Gerald Genta Gefica model, in a limited edition of 50 items, is a novelty in the brand’s boutiques.

The second timepiece, manufactured solely for the Gerald Genta boutiques in Geneva, Paris, Hong Kong and Shanghai is presented with the “blue note” offered for the first time.

Suggested by the expressiveness of Afro-American music, this tone happens to be an ideal one for the Gefica, which came into the world in Africa and realized the dream of three friends - wildlife adventures’ ardent lovers.

The captivating blue shade of the dial and the strap made of alligator leather complements the bronze and titanium construction with an absolute hip touch.

Born in 1988, the Gefica was fully produced from bronze, a new material in watchmaking. Preferred for natural matt look, bronze tends to acquire a special patina in a while: so it behaves quite independently, joined to the wrist of a timepiece wearer.

The new Gerald Genta Gefica watch, initially released in 2007, is extremely charming. The timepiece features beaded titanium rings arrayed around the case middle and the crown.

The watch’s flared case with the size ranging from 42.5 mm in diameter on the wrist to 46.5 mm on the surface, is perfect for lots of different people to wear.

A concave outer ring, with a curved central seconds hand, which glides over the dial, dips the latter towards the centre.

The core of this complex structure is presented by Genta’s favorite functions: jumping hours along with retrograde minutes as well as date.

These complications are activated by means of the automatic Biretro movement. In this horological item the movement that can be seen through the sapphire crystal case-back also demonstrates the concentric circular graining and Potter finish performed in old gold color.
