The Octo Retro Joaillerie watch presents the icon Gérald Genta movement performing in an original choreography. For the very first time, the hours jump in a window positioned at 11 o’clock and the retrograding minutes move to and fro across a 180° arc of a circle arranged around the bezel. The ballet of time in complete harmony with the radiating motif adorning the watch dial.
Dial and bezel merge beneath a slinky, tapering motif. The scale-covered lines feature the shimmering glow of translucent enamel, lighting up the diamond-pavé paths. The striking contrast exudes the very essence of Gérald Genta, a dating brand that loves to explore contemporary design horizons and to use unexpected combinations of shapes, colours and materials.
The Octo Retro Joaillerie majestically bears the unmistakable hallmark of Gérald Genta. The exclusive self-winding complication movement with jumping hours and retrograde minutes is housed within an opulent Octo case measuring 39 mm in diameter. Clothed in enamel and diamonds while retaining its peerlessly original character, it looks every inch the nonconformist star.
This stunning creation comes in red gold adorned with a motif composed of green enamel and black diamonds. A white gold variation features black enamel and white diamonds. Both are fitted with crocodile leather straps that extend the theme of scales. These fascinating Gérald Genta creations are clearly destined for women of strong character.
