In light of the watch world’s renewed interest in slim, elegant timepieces, we are pleased to offer here this beautiful Gerald Genta wristwatch. Gerald Genta was born in Geneva in 1931, after concluding his studies as a goldsmith and jeweler, earning a Swiss federal diploma, he was recruited by Universal Geneve, one of the most renowned watchmaking manufacturers. Following his work with Universal Geneve several Swiss watchmaking firms called upon the young genius designer like Omega, IWC, Audemars Piguet and Patek Philippe making the most important design like the Nautilus, Royal Oak and more. Its perfect proportions combined with the very uncommon case and the diamond-set structure make this watch one of the nicest examples ever produced from Gerald Genta regarding time-only watches. The two bodies case in 18k yellow gold of 27 mm in diameter comes in great conditions, the bezel with eight overhanging segments are set with diamonds that match perfectly with the pavè diamond dial and the bracelet. The watch is completed by the sapphire crystal, baton hands, Vendôme type lugs and powered by a quartz movement.
