Charles Gérald Genta  was a Swiss wristwatch designer, noted for his eponymous line of time pieces as well as his design work with other firms, including IWC, Universal Genève, Patek Philippe and Audemars Piguet, among others.

“Genta was born in Geneva to a Swiss mother and father of Piedmontese (Northern Italian) descent. At age 20, Genta finished jewelry and goldsmith training in his native Switzerland, earning a Swiss federal diploma.

After his eponymous company was acquired by Bulgari in 1999, Genta resigned and created a new venture called Gerald Charles. As of 2010, Gerald Genta watches were marketed solely under the Bulgari brand.”

The Gerald Genta Arena Metasonic luxury watch is meant to be the most complex Grande Sonnerie watch in the world.

Based on the objectives defined for each parameter, Gerald Genta decided to target excellence by creating an alloy of which the composition will remain a closely guarded secret.

Having reached the peak of its art in mastering its Grande Sonnerie mechanism, Gerald Genta wished to provide it with a tailor-made case specifically developed to exalt its musicality.

To achieve this, it cooperated with a French university in developing a software programme capable of analysing all kinds of materials.

The rear of the watch has more of the fascinating movement and dual power reserves. The various sonnerie functions also include a silence mode, and a grande and petite sonnerie option. This chooses between louder or more soft strikes.
