  • Catalogue Essay

    Gérald Genta did not only change the face of modern watchmaking with his designs for game changing models such as the Royal Oak and the Nautilus but he was also one of the first to create highly complicated timepieces right at the offset of the quartz crisis in the late 1980s.

    In 1991 he launched his Octogonal collection with models housing a powerful 8 sided case reminiscent of his previous work but with a more daring approach.

    The present timepiece is both technically advanced with its use of two highly complicated features such as perpetual calendar with moonphase and minute repeater but also features subtle and elegant details such as an openworked dial enabling one to admire the intricacies of the perpetual calendar mechanism, a gem set moonphase frame, mother of pearl subdials and a lavishly hand engraved movement.
