  • Catalogue Essay

    Whimsical, exciting and unusual, the Gérald Genta Retro Mickey Mouse collection is one that is celebrated by some and perhaps a little too much for others. Having established his own brand in 1969, Gérald Genta was most notably known for his other projects including the design of the Royal Oak and Nautilus.

    In the 1980s, Gérald Genta earned the rights to manufacture timepieces with a theme to celebrate Walt Disney and his famous cartoon characters from Mickey Mouse. However, when Genta presented these timepieces at the trade fair, the timepieces were deemed unorthodox and was not as highly praised as they are today, making these fun timepieces even more collectable.

    The present example Gérald Genta Retro Mickey Mouse ref. G3632 features a retrograde minute indicated by an articulated hand positioned from 8 to 4 o’clock and a jumping hour at 6 o’clock completing a perfectly symmetrical dial layout against the mother of pearl surface. With the ever growing demand for these Mickey Mouse themed timepieces, Bulgari recently launched their tribute inspired directly from this specific series.
