Gerald Charles Haute Horlogerie
Gerald Charles, Swiss watchmaking house, was founded by Mr Gerald Charles Genta, the “Picasso of Watches.” He created masterpieces for the likes of Audermars Piguet, Patek Philippe, IWC, Bulgari, Omega, Cartier and more. Representing his latest creation, the relaunching Maison Gerald Charles revives his 20 years heritage as an independent and family-run luxury watchmaker. Our watches, likewise our collectors, bear distinctive personalities. As they are designed and manufactured in Switzerland in limited-edition only.
The Maison is coming back with two prestigious collections: The Heritage, featuring the original watches manufactured and touched by Mr Gerald Charles Genta. And the Anniversary watch, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the brand with a modern version of the iconic Maestro watch, once designed by Gerald.
GC heritage timepieces are designed and signed by Mr Gerald Charles Genta between 2000 and 2011. They have since constituted the private collection Museum of the Maison Gerald Charles, patiently collected over two decades of our brand existence.
Featuring some of the most iconic design lines of Gerald Charles, the Heritage began on the eve of the third Millennium, with the first collection Renaissance. Our watches are the creations of the most mature Mr Gerald Genta, inventor of the Royal Oak and the Nautilus, who used the brand Gerald Charles as a mean to express the artistic paradigm of XXI Century luxury watchmaking. The Renaissance collection was designed for ladies, not gents. An unusual choice for the market of luxury wristwatches, ever since dominated by men. The Renaissance line bears by the rare signature of Mr Genta, engraved on the case-back, making each timepiece a unique investment opportunity for collectors.
Celebrate the 20th anniversary of our brand’s foundation, with 240 unique pieces, one for each month of 20 years. Each watch bears a unique month-year combination from January 2000 to January 2020. The Anniversary collection represents a once in a lifetime opportunity to secure a Gerald Charles Maestro for an affordable price, as we are offering this chance to the early collectors who sustain the relaunch of our independent and family-run brand alongside the memory of its founder Mr Gerald Charles Genta.
