In a quest for identity and sense of belonging, horology manages to impress audiences with its exceptional combination between tradition and engineering. Gérald Genta is one such brand that has preoccupied loyal connoisseurs for the last 15 years with its Arena Grande Sonnerie, only to extend the realm to perfection wit its new masterpiece – the Arena Metasonic. Launched in 1994, it has improved into a number of exceptionally complex wristwatch models ever since and only 61 in all have emerged from the Gérald Genta workshops since then. Accumulation of functions with the intrinsic complexity of the movement to be assembled and cased up takes almost a year’s work to craft just one such masterpiece. Measuring 46mm in diameter at the case middle and 50mm overall, the Arena Metasonic features a combination of vertical-polished and horizontal satin-brushed surfaces. It is fitted with an ostrich leather strap. Priced at $900k, this exceptional watch has merged with cutting-edge technology by providing a glass security box which renders it invisible until the owner pushes the biometrically programmed button that will respond to no other touch. Gérald Genta also provides it with a tailor-made case specifically developed to exalt its musicality.
