Gerald Genta Offers Gefica New Timepiece

Jun 11, 2009
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.
