  • Catalogue Essay

    Most notable for designing some of the world’s most iconic watches such as the Royal Oak and the Nautilus, Gerald Genta has also created unforgettable timepieces under his own brand.

    In the 1980s, Genta won the rights to produce timepieces to celebrate Walt Disney as well as whimsical cartoon characters from the famed Mickey Mouse. Since then, the firm has created timepieces featuring these iconic cartoon characters.

    The present example is one of those rare and sought-after examples from the Retro series featuring retrograde minutes and jumping hours indicated via Donald Duck’s articulated hand with a baseball bat. The present example is preserved in excellent overall condition with extremely minimal signs of use and wear. With the recent rise in demand for these playful and whimsical pieces, Bvlgari launched a reedition of the Mickey Mouse Retro this year. A great opportunity to acquire one of the rare originals from Genta.
