  • Catalogue Essay

    From the Pole Router, the Royal Oak to the ever-so iconic Nautilus, these are just three examples of the most celebrated Gerald Genta creations that are still coveted today. Revered for his out-of-the-box designs and highly complicated conceptions, the late watchmaking legend started his eponymous line of timepieces in 1969, which was subsequently acquired by Bulgari at the turn of the millennium.

    The Arena Chrono Quattro Retro is a fascinating timepiece that combines two complications into one movement as shown on the present dial—the jumping hour in the center with retrograde minutes above it. The other functions such as the date indication at 6 o’clock and the two chronograph sub-registers flanked on each side are also displayed in a retrograde styled fan. Undoubtedly a recurring theme in this Genta-design, it is no wonder why this reference is called the “Chrono Quattro Retro”. Encased in a hefty oversized white gold and tantalum case, the present timepiece encapsulates the signature traits of the watchmaker with its layered dial and playful indication of time.

    Offered in excellent overall condition with attractive value, this is a fantastic opportunity for collectors and fans of Gerald Genta to acquire a fun, muscular and technically sound chronograph watch.
