  • Catalogue Essay

    Regarded as one of the most important figures in watchmaking in recent times, the late Gerald Genta was known mostly for designing the now “viral” Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and the Patek Philippe Nautilus. However, Gerald Genta also made his very own timepieces under his name.

    In the 1980s, Gerald Genta won the rights to produce timepieces to commemorate Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse. Since then, Gerald Genta has produced numerous models featuring the famous cartoon character.

    The present example belongs to a limited edition of 80 pieces. Encased in a 45mm diameter titanium case, the timepiece features a bi-retrograde function to indicate the minutes and the date with an articulated arm of Mickey Mouse with a jumping mechanism to depict the hours. Presented in excellent overall condition and accompanied by the full set of accessories, it is indeed a fun watch to acquire.
