  • Catalogue Essay

    Originally requested by the Sultan of Brunei, the Gérald Genta “Mickey Mouse” watches were first introduced to the public in 1984 with mixed reception. Although it was at the time the most expensive “Mickey Mouse” watch in the market, the demand for these fun and unusual timepieces continued to grow, evolving into featuring various cartoon characters from Disney.

    The present example Gérald Genta Retro “Fantasy” encased in a 36mm diameter case is of the largest variant from the Retro “Fantasy” series. Displaying an unorthodox retrograde minutes in Chinese characters from 12 to 7 o’clock with its jumping hours at 9 o’clock, the minutes are indicated via the articulated hands of Minnie Mouse dressed in traditional Chinese attire. Deriving from a limited edition series of 300 pieces consisting of other examples featuring a different character, the present example is certainly an interesting piece made especially for the Hong Kong market in collaboration with the Hong Kong Disneyland.

    Offered in excellent overall condition, the present lot will surely garner interest from the passionate community of collectors seeking for a fun timepiece to sport.
