Gerald Genta- Octo Tourbillon Sunray

The Octo Tourbillon Sunray comprises a perfectly integrated retrograde hour display and boasts a substantial 64-hour power reserve. It is also remarkable in terms of its slender construction (5.9 mm thick). Developed and crafted within the Manufacture, the movement is enriched by signature fine watchmaking finishes such as circular graining, bevelling, polishing, circular satin brushing or hand-drawn flanks. In an ultimate touch of class, it is clothed in the classic Gérald Genta “old gold”, the “Potter finish” created by the brand in tribute to the colour of antique movements.

watch connoisseurs will surely admire the majestic dial of the new Gerald Genta Octo watch. The three-dimensional lacquer dial is created from yellow gold. It features contrastingly oriented square layers positioned atop an octagonal minute track. The distinctive octagonal shape has also been acquired by the dial flange, and the aperture showing the beautiful flying tourbillon. The dial shows off retrograde hours and is completed with hand-engraved gold elements.

The Gerald Genta watch accommodates an automatic tourbillon movement - GG 9051, operating at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour. The bridges and “G” skeletonized rotor demonstrate a gold “Potter finish” inspired by vintage mechanical calibers. The movement gives an advantage of a 64-hour power reserve.

The Gerald Genta Octo Tourbillon Sunray watch is presented on an elegant black pleated crocodile leather strap. The timepiece is also available in two other versions – one in 18K pink gold, and another one with a tri-composite case with a platinum middle part, a tantalum bezel fitted with gold countersunk nails, and a black and red-lacquered dial created in white gold. The latter version of the timepiece
is coupled with a red pleated crocodile leather strap.
