  • Catalogue Essay

    Gerald Genta is most probably one of, if not, the best known horological designers of all time, having penned the designs of some of the world’s most iconic watches such as the Royal Oak and the Nautilus.

    Having set out under his own name in 1982, he made the retrograde time display one of his signature elements, with playful dials representing Disney characters or more traditional examples.

    The present piece is number 3, part of an exclusive 20-piece limited edition series in steel with an iridescent mother of pearl dial and elegant Eastern Arabic numerals.
