The Maestro 8.0 Squelette masterfully blends Mr. Genta’s iconic Maestro case shape with a striking, uniquely open-worked movement, epitomizing the 'art' of mechanical watchmaking. This exquisite timepiece, a creation of the contemporary and globally celebrated watch designer Octavio Garcia, stands as a testament to innovative design and sophisticated craftsmanship.

Ref. GC8.0-SQ-A-00

The Maestro 8.0 Squelette is an engineering marvel, featuring a movement that comprises 160 components yet remains remarkably ultra-thin at just 2.6mm. It includes a beautifully crafted star-shaped gold micro-rotor, mounted on ceramic bearings, designed to maximize the visibility of the mechanism. Despite its slim profile, the watch maintains a robust 50-hour power reserve, showcasing the fusion of form and function.

On the dial side, the artistry continues with skeletonized bridges that are either satin-finished and rhodium-plated or treated with anthracite NAC, enhancing their visual appeal. Every angle, bevel, and aperture is meticulously hand-polished, and all wheels are circular-grained on every surface, exemplifying the watch's exquisite craftsmanship. Additionally, the rehaut is securely held by nine star-shaped screws, a unique feature specially designed and developed for Gerald Charles, adding a distinctive touch to this sophisticated timepiece.
