An integrated dress watch paying homage to the iconic Nautilus, featuring angular facets and chamfers that extend from the hands all the way to the bracelet.
The theme of this piece revolves around achieving a cohesive and harmonious integration in the entire watch, beginning with intricately faceted skeletonized dauphine-style hands.
HANDS & INDICES
The hands on the Revelot Gentus are crafted with pronounced chamfers, combining a blend of polished and brushed finishes, further enhanced with Super-Luminova C3 for excellent luminosity.
The Indices as well are chamfered with polished and brushed facets with a mix of roman and baton style depending on the variant. Surrounding the indices is a slanted railway styled chapter ring with C3 lume for excellent legibility to the minute.
CASE & GLASS
The case of the Gentus is easily recognizable by many with the ‘ears’ on both sides similar to the luxury icon. One of the key differences between the Gentus and the Nautilus would be the angular facets all around the case with brushed and polished finish which some also might say its similar to the Royal Oak.
Made with 316L Steel the dress watch is capped with an Anti-reflective Sapphire glass on top and an exhibition case back below for the automatic variants.
DIAL & MOVEMENT
At Revelot, we always strive to make great entry level watches that are fun, affordable and packed with value and the Gentus is no exception. To keep the prices attainable for everyone, The Gentus collection offers three unique dial designs tailored to different movements.
The first features radial diamond "Guilloche" pattern dials, available in both Seiko Automatic NH35 and Swiss Ronda quartz variants. The second is the Aventurine on the Seiko Automatic NH35; a man-made quartz mineral that glitters like the universe.
Lastly, translucent/Smoked dials coupled with the Skeletonized Seiko Automatic NH70 and NH72 movements. These are workhorse movements that are made to last for a long time that are easily repairable and sourced.
Moving onto the integrated bracelet, unlike regular oyster links, angular links are more difficult to polish. Each piece skillfully manual polished with brush and mirror finishing with a total of 14 facets per H-link and another 8 facets on the middle link.
This process requires a lot of patience and dedication from the bracelet manufacturer that is producing over 20,000 pieces of links for the Gentus. One of the moans of many with butterfly clasps is the lack of micro-adjustability, the Gentus will include 2 pieces of half-link on the bracelet for a more fitted adjustment for maximum comfort and adjustability.
