The new Maestro 8.0 Squelette is a watch that combines Mr. Genta’s unmistakable Maestro case shape with an extraordinary and unique open-worked movement that truly celebrates the 'art' of the mechanical watch. This new and unique in-house manufacture ultra-thin automatic movement has been developed with Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier exclusively for Gerald Charles, under the creative direction of the contemporary watch designer Mr. Octavio Garcia. The case of the Maestro GC 8.0 Squelette is based on the Maestro 2.0 Ultra-Thin model, and it has been slimmed down to 8.35mm, to enhance the watch’s ergonomics further and push elegance and performance to their limits. As with every Gerald Charles watch, a screw-down crown ensures the Maestro 8.0 Squelette is water-resistant to an impressive 100 metres.
