  • Catalogue Essay

    With a recent spike in demand for early Gérald Genta timepieces, the community has witnessed a growing appetite for the Retro Fantasy collection and garnering collectors attention with Mickey Mouse dials. In the 1980s, Genta won the rights to produce timepieces to celebrate Walt Disney and cartoon characters from the Mickey Mouse series. Since then, these rare timepieces have been produced with various dial designs as well as case materials.

    Part of the sought-after Retro Fantasy series, the present timepiece features the rarely seen Donald Duck dressed for a game of golf. An instant classic encompassing the whimsical duck swinging a golf club articulated as the indication of its retrograde style minutes. An aperture at the 4 o’clock position features a jumping hour sums up the style of the Genta Retro. With a teal colored dial contrasted against the mother-of-pearl minute track in the blue sky, the appeal is simply vibrant and playful. A delight to view as Donald Duck swings his golf club across the retrograde minute track, the hour jumps simultaneously once he hits the golf ball for a birdie. Preserved in excellent overall condition the present timepiece is cased in a rarely seen two-tone stainless steel and gold plated appeal, a must-have for collectors who already have the Mickey Mouse variant looking for his friends to complete the collection.
