Maison Gerald Charles is delighted to announce that it will be the official timekeeper of the 2024 Care Wellness Kooyong Classic tournament in Melbourne, Australia.
The tournament will take place from January 10th to 12th 2024 at Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club. The Care Wellness Kooyong Classic is the perfect preparation for the Australian Grand Slam tournament which starts two days after the Classic. Involving some famous ATP tennis players, it can be considered as a much-anticipated event for players and spectators alike.
Following the success of the three iterations of the Maestro GC Sport timepieces and the partnership with some ATP professional tennis players such as Hubert Hurkacz, Maison Gerald Charles is now proud to strengthen its tennis association and start this new sponsorship with Kooyong Classic. The Maestro GC Sport collection includes elegant watches with a sporty look, developed and tested with some professional tennis players, to ensure ultimate comfort on court. Gerald Charles is one of the few independent watchmaking brands to have realized a mechanical watch that professional athletes can comfortably wear during competitive play.
The Maestro GC Sport features a case in Grade 5 mirror-polished titanium, an extremely light and hard material, and a left-hand crown to allow freedom of movement during play. The original GC Sport in Royal Blue colour was followed by the GC Sport Clay and the GC Sport Grass. The latest two iterations feature a unique hammered dial, a subtle nod towards the hard courts tennis surface and capturing the spirit of the professional clay and grass courts tennis seasons.
All Gerald Charles watches ensure 5G shock-resistance and 10 ATM water-resistance, while offering 50 hours of power reserve. The combination of high-end craftsmanship and wearability is what makes Gerald Charles, and particularly the Maestro GC Sport so special.
This is the very first time the company lands in Australia. This sponsorship represents an additional step forward for the Maison and a great occasion to let collectors and watch enthusiasts try on their wrist Gerald Charles watches and appreciate the ergonomics and high-end finishings.
