Gala

A Performance

 

GALA

 

On the stage a ballerina displays her art with a minimum of effects. Harmony, grace and astonishing expertise are the components of a universal language. Gala seeks to reproduce this image of simplicity and apparent effortlessness.

GALA

 

Like a ballerina’s performance, the hour is changed with a choreographed and orchestrated jump every 58 minutes. The hour figure then wanders around the dial to mark the minutes, in the end serenely giving way to the next hour in the last two minutes of its appearance. With his Gala, Vincent Calabrese wished to present a minimalist expression of a striking mechanical complication.

THE DIAL

Here technique is allied with poetry. We’re speaking of the Wandering Hour display, a system that goes back to the 19th century and was used for clocks and pocket watches. Gala is a modern interpretation of the invention which allows for easy readability and creates a vital elegance.

THE BACK

A special feature is on offer on the reverse side, affording the possibility of viewing the automatic movement through a sapphire crystal.

COMPLICATION

“Wandering Hour” has been continually improved, culminating in a patented mechanism, stll hold by Vincent Calabrese, that led to the creation of Gala. The apparent simplicity of the model is inversely proportional to its mechanical complexity.

GALA, THE MEASURE OF A LIFETIME

Gala is the symbiosis of two forms of elegance-one belonging to the case and the other to the dial-which will make this watch a genuine treasure.

If Gala was meant to represent a single virtue, it would be restraint-restraint allied with elegance. The passing of time on Gala’s dial becomes an elemental and minimalist performance.
