The Maestro 97 takes his name from Master(english), Maitre(french), Maestro(Italian): the ultimate title awarded to Mr Gerald Charles Genta by the universe of luxury watchmaking.
The Maestro.97 Tourbillon Mustache represents the iconic masterpiece of Gerald Charles and artistic paradigm of our former designer Mr Gerald Charles Genta. The Mustache of Gerald are replicated in the tourbillon bridge. It is rare to see such a small watch component forged in steel, considering the hardness of this material that makes it challenging to model in such a small component. The squared carré case is set to become an icon of luxury watchmaking. Its four cut edges coins coupés resembles the Octagonal shape, iconic signature of Gerald. However, the most mature artist, in his modern Maestro design goes beyond the octagon and introduces an innovative, never seen, yet incredibly harmonious, case shape. Round and squared lines co-exist in an harmony never seen before. The Maestro was designed to host the highest mechanical complications: smothering the squared lines at 6 o’clock with an hemispheric convexity called smile Gerald creates a dedicated space for the Swiss Tourbillon.
