Gerald Charles presents the Maestro GC20 with four new references.

Switzerland, year 2000, the Maison Gerald Charles is founded by the legendary watch designer and artist, Monsieur Gerald Charles Genta (1931-2011). Today the Maison enjoys the worldwide success of its Maestro Anniversary. A limited edition of 252 pieces, celebrating the 20 years anniversary of Gerald Charles. This edition is now almost sold-out and therefore very rare to find. The Maison follows up with a great addition to the Maestro Collection, the GC20 “Original Time”.
The four GC20 references are characterized by the iconic Maestro Case as well as the original dial, both coming from the drawings that Mr. Genta exclusively realized for Gerald Charles.
GC20 is available in two versions: polished stainless steel (ref. “A”) or DLC coated (ref. “DLC”). Each of them has two dials with sunburst finishing for a better ligh reflection: Blue Royal ref. “01” and Matte Black with coral-painted minutes  ref.“00”.
The Gerald Charles strap features a double-face decoration with pyramids on one side and GC logo’s tappisserie on the other. This is also an original design by Mr. Genta for the Swiss Maison. The strap material is a technical vulcanized rubber, chosen by the Maison to guarantee superior water resistance, strength, durability and comfort on wrist.
The watches are available for orders starting from end of November 2020. They can be purchased at Gerald Charles official retailers or directly from the Gerald Charles Official website: www.geraldcharles.com

Ref. GC20-DLC-01

The Maestro Original Time ref. GC20-DLC-01 undergoes a complex coating process with Diamond Like Carbon, known by the acronym of DLC. Similar DLC treatments are applied in high-end engineering to drastically improve performance and durability of supersport motorcycles or Formula 1 racecars.

The value of such coating accrues from its unique ability to provide some of the properties of diamond to the stainless steel, Maestro case, surface. Improved hardness, reduced friction and wear resistance are three main achievements of Gerald Charles DLC coating. This exclusive treatment is performed at no compromise, 100% in Switzerland, with state-of-the-art technology and machinery.

The result is a hard-wearing, extremely comfortable timepiece. On a case diameter of 40mm and water-resistant to 100 meters. Ergonomics and wearability are excellent.

The Gerald Charles production of this DLC coated edition is limited to less than 100 pieces per year.

Notes:
Maison Gerald Charles S.A.

Gerald Charles is a prestigious Maison of Swiss watchmaking, founded in the year 2000 by Monsieur Gerald Charles Genta, world renowned watch designer and artist. At the beginning of the 2000s, Monsieur Gerald Charles Genta, having dedicated a short period of his life exclusively to the art of painting, decided to return to the field of watch design, founding the eponymous Maison Gerald Charles. The choice of giving his name to the brand symbolises his desire to create a unique bond with his own production. The sinuous lines and the harmony of singular shapes, that the artist has managed to make iconic in each of his creations, are very recognisable in Gerald Charles watches. These masterpieces are born from the union between artistic creativity and technical mastery of Swiss mechanics, synonymous with excellence. On the twentieth anniversary of the founding of Gerald Charles, the celebrations unveil – alongside the Heritage collection – the first model of the new collection, in a limited edition. The Anniversary of the Maison, represents the desire to cultivate the passion about watches, art and technology, with a contemporary reinterpretation of the ancient masterpieces. The Maison Gerald Charles is keen to present the Maestro Anniversary, a limited edition watch – developed from Monsieur Genta’s original designs for the Maison Gerald Charles.

Monsieur Gerald Charles Genta

Monsieur Gerald Charles Genta was born in Geneva in 1931. From a young age his interest was piqued by artistic disciplines, namely painting and sculpture. At the end of his teenage years, he came into contact with the world of high-end jewellery, where he discovered the design that was soon to become his great passion. Monsieur Genta is deemed the most famous watch designer in the world. Acclaimed by many as “The Maestro”. At the young age of 23, he created his first wrist masterpiece, the Polerouter for Maison Universal Geneva. His most famous creations include the Royal Oak for Audemars Piguet in 1972, the Nautilus for Patek Philippe in 1976, the Bulgari Bulgari and Bulgari Roma for Bulgari in the early eighties. Not to be forgotten is his fundamental contribution in redesigning Cartier’s Pasha, IWC’s Ingenieur, the Golden Ellipse for Patek Philippe and various models for Omega. In 1969, Monsieur Genta decided to create his first brand: “Gerald Genta”. This brand was sold in the late nineties and integrated later into the Bulgari portfolio. In the early 2000s Monsieur Genta, at the height of his international success, founded the most modern and audacious of his brands: “Gerald Charles”. For the Maison Gerald Charles, the famous designer created some of the most modern of his watches, amongst them the “Maestro” collection is one of his highest achievements. An asymmetric watch case, unique of its kind, was never seen before and represents a radical innovation from everything else until now. Being ahead of their time and stay iconic forever are qualities common to  Gerald’s watches.
