To mark the launch of this new issue, Luxus+ is offering a special deal: with every annual subscription, receive the latest issue of Luxury Journals and a collector’s edition of Luxus Magazine in the colors of the Maison Charriol!

From April 9 to 15, professionals from the world of watchmaking gather at the Watches and Wonders Show at Palexpo in Geneva. Among the 54 participating watchmakers, Gerald Charles is one of the 6 new entrants to this year’s event. The brand is showcasing its latest innovation: the Masterlink watch, featured on the cover of our Luxury Journals #5, to be previewed at the show and already available on our website.



The emblematic Maestro case

After participating in the design of iconic watches such as Patek Philippe‘s Nautilus and Audemars Piguet‘s Royal Oak, Gérald Charles Genta (the man behind Vaucher movements) launched his own watch manufacture, named…Gerald Charles, in 2000. A few years later, he unveiled what was to become the Maison’s signature model: the Maestro. With its innovative case shape featuring a smile at 6 o’clock, this timepiece was the starting point for numerous variations imagined by Gerald Charles over the years.


The new Masterlink, a legacy of innovation


Unveiled at Watches & Wonders 2024, the Masterlink watch marks a new chapter in the history of Gerald Charles. The watch’s design is a continuation of the Maestro case, but with an even more contemporary twist. The Masterlink’s modernity comes above all from its integrated asymmetrical metal bracelet.

Despite the apparent simplicity of its design, it is a real technical achievement: despite its screw-down crown, the dial retains an astonishing slimness of 7.99 mm. A feat achieved by the Italian team at its helm, comprising CEO Federico Ziviani and Creative Director Octavio Garcia.
