    With a recent spike in demand for early Gérald Genta timepieces, the community has witnessed a growing appetite for the Retro “Mikey Mouse” collection. Although the hype for Genta designed timepieces such as the Nautilus and the Royal Oak are still witnessing record prices achieved at auction, timepieces with the Genta name on the dial are realizing a similar pattern.

    In the 1980s, Genta won the rights to produce timepieces to celebrate Walt Disney and cartoon characters from Mickey Mouse series. Since then. These rare timepieces have been produced with various dial designs as well as case materials. The present Retro “Mickey Mouse” is an instant classic encompassing the whimsical mouse 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, the appeal is simply vibrant and playful.

    The present example Gérald Genta Retro “Mickey Mouse” features its original stainless steel bracelet and is preserved in very good overall condition.
