Official description

The latest collection from revived watchmaking icon gérald genta is a capsule line of three deeply evocative watches inspired by the 1994 Oursin, a fascinating preview of the brand’s in-house experimental design lab, codenamed Gentissima.

Before plunging into the world of gérald genta, it is necessary to understand three things. Firstly, the legendary designer of the same name was as prolific as he was creative, with thousands of sketches and concepts in his portfolio, some of which never saw the light of day. Secondly, a gérald genta watch is not for the faint of heart; it demands a bold partner with an adventurous spirit. Thirdly, gérald genta watchmaking is transcendental. It goes beyond the purely horological and is more precisely described as jewel for the wrist.

At the outermost frontiers of the gérald genta realm, a current of disobedience governs the tides. This transient domain is called Gentissima, the ultimate expression of liberated watchmaking design that takes an equal measure of audacity and abandon to navigate. Throughout his career, Genta reserved his most experimental work for his eponymous brand, indulging the full extent of his creative genius without restriction, an approach that characterises the landscape of Gentissima.

Emerging from these turbulent waves and marking the debut of the Gentissima design lab is the Oursin, a watch which origins can be found in 1994, at the confluence of passion and untrammeled self-expression.
