MR. GERALD CHARLES GENTA: THE MAN WHO DESIGNED THE FIRST ROYAL OAK FOR AUDEMARS PIGUET, NAUTILUS FOR PATEK PHILIPPE AND MORE OTHER ICONIC WATCHES.
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.
A CONTEMPORARY SPIN ON A TRADITIONAL COMPLICATION
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’.
THE THIRD GENERATION OF THE MAESTRO CASE
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 forged 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. Retrieved From
