The Watch Quote™ - February 5th, 2008



With its fluted case middle and protected crown, the round Arena line is ready for all kinds of adventures. A sports watch capable of taking on an aristocratic air, and a traditional model that enjoys making light of conventions… Since 2004, a dual time-zone display and a perpetual calendar share the stage while forming a sophisticated rosette design. The second time-zone and calendar counters are distinguished by their shared preference for distinguishing between an even-number circle and an odd-number circle. Meanwhile, the days and months are displayed on rotating discs placed on either side.

The two 2008 versions of the Arena QP GMT feature a titanium case topped with a platinum bezel. Light metal and heavy metal form a contrasting matt and brilliant composition that is particularly pleasant to wear. The signature red and black Gérald Genta colours are highlighted on the alligator leather straps and dials designed in a mechanical spirit clearly inspired by the automobile world.

The construction of the multi-layer dial is particularly sophisticated, featuring a perforated base that provides glimpses of the Potter-finished movement. The distinction between the GMT and perpetual calendar displays is accentuated by the use of colours. Harmony reigns through the dagger-shaped hands used for the local hours and minutes as well as for the dual time zone and date. The 2,4,8 and 10 numerals are applied and polished, as are the rims of the day and month counters, echoing the shiny brilliance of the bezel.

On the reverse side, the self-winding movement visible through a sapphire case-back is equipped with a solid gold rotor and graced with exclusive Gérald Genta finishing. The old-gold “Potter” colour and concentric circular graining create a modernised vintage look radiating an air of non-conformist understatement.
