Gerald Genta launches Arena White Spice watch
Jun '08
The Gerald Genta Arena White Spice watch is a provocative creation of daring haute horlogerie, which draws its inspiration from the 1970's, as well as the creations of fashion designers André Courrèges and Paco Rabanne.

A development of the Arena Spice watch which was introduced by Gerald Genta in 2007, this new variation courts modern women of style with its youthful spirit, boldly exotic design, luxurious craftsmanship, and casual elegance.

The stainless steel case measures 41mm in diameter, and stands out for its electrifying combination of white rubber and scintillating round brilliant diamonds; a white rubber strap compliments the bezel adornment, providing the impression of relaxed elegance.

Remarkable for its intricacy and exceptional attention to detail, the dial delights in playfulness and color. Crafted from polished metal and mother of pearl which is applied with luminous dots, and a section of apertures, through which the strikingly colored jump hour disc peeks out. A "preview" of the upcoming hour can be made out through two frosted sapphire windows which appear just to the right of the jumping hour aperture.

This arrangement of brilliant color takes its inspiration from the creations of Swiss Expressionist painter Johannes Itten. Meanwhile, minutes are shown in a semi-circle in the upper dial area, by means of a black-lacquered hand, whose shape and open-worked pattern cleverly matches the dial pattern that lies beneath it.

At the turn of the hour, one can thus observe two fascinating actions, both of which are a technical specialty of the house of Gerald Genta: the jump hour disc advances in the blink of an eye, and the retrograde minute display simultaneously leaps back to zero.

The surprising and delightful complications of the Arena White Spice watch are animated by a self-winding mechanical movement, which has been carefully adjusted and decorated by skilled watchmakers.
