Maestro 3.0 Premier 2021
The "Premier 2021" represents the unique opportunity to get hold of the first Gerald Charles Maestro Chronograph 3.0 in rose gold ever produced in our history. Dedicated to our best collectors.
The Maestro 3.0
The Maestro 3.0 Premier 2021 Edition represents another significant evolution of the Maison’s signature Maestro model. Featuring a new hand-finished manufacture chronograph caliber. In addition, its combination of an 18-carat gold case and emerald green dial and strap will be a one-off, each one defined by engravings on the case back showing the limited-edition mark and the words ‘Premier 2021’. This edition is limited to 25 pieces in the world.
The new hand-finished automatic chronograph movement inside the Maestro 3.0 Premier 2021 Edition, Calibre GCA3022/12, is a highly sophisticated ultra-thin Manufacture movement made in Fleurier, Switzerland. It features no date three chronograph counters for seconds, minutes and hours.
It has a thickness of only 6.07mm, including its solid 18-carat gold, bi-directional rotating oscillating weight. The movement, which has a power reserve of 50 hours, can be seen through the case back’s sapphire crystal, alongside the engraving ‘Premier 2021’.
Maestro 3.0 case
The Maestro 3.0 case, with an overall 40mm fit, has been subtly, but significantly updated with more squared angles. The bespoke chronograph pushers were never seen before. As their shape mirrors the rounded corners of the case; an original design of the Maison’s founder, Monsieur Genta. The overall form, which is carved out of ten pieces of solid 18-carat rose gold, has been designed to sit flat on the wrist, measuring only 11.5mm in depth.
Gerald Charles technicians and engineers innovated a bespoke system that ensured equal pressure around the edge of the sapphire crystal and 100 meters of water resistance, a singular engineering achievement. A screw-down 18-carat rose gold crown, with a Clous de Paris finish, further protects the watch.
The Gerald Charles strap in emerald green features its classic double-face decoration with pyramids on one side and GC logo’s tapisserie 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.
