DETAILS

Estimated production period: 2004–2010. Сase in 18k yellow gold, diameter 41mm, sapphire caseback. Openworked dial with spherical polished indexes, and ‘filet sauté’ guilloché motif. Caliber GG 31001, hand-wound, with reversed hand-fitting, chiming and repeating on four hammers onto four gongs, marked by Poinçon de Genève quality mark. Power reserve of sonnerie mechanism: 24 hours in grande sonnerie mode, 28 hours in petite sonnerie mode. Functions – sub-dial for indication of time in hours and minutes at 3 o’clock, tourbillon at 10 o’clock, grande and petite sonnerie and minute repeater with Westminster chime with four striking hammers and four gongs, sonnerie selectors (‘grande/petite’ and ‘silence/chime’) and power reserve indicators (of the caliber and the sonnerie mechanism) installed on the back of the case.

REASONS TO BUY

The Grande Sonnerie Carillon Westminster Tourbillon Ref. GS1.X.20.893.CN.BA Piece Unique would appear to be a fine purchase for the collector thanks to its outstanding and memorable design, elaborate hand finishing and decoration of the caliber, and the extraordinary combination of Empire and Baroque styles. The grande and petite sonnerie function, as well as a minute repeater is extremely rare and the most complicated among traditional mechanical haute horlogerie complications, made even more sophisticated by the addition of a tourbillon. It would also be a fine occasion for the collector to obtain one of the iconic timepieces of modern haute horlogerie, originating from Gérald Genta, one of the most well-respected names of luxury watchmaking.
