Charles Gerald Genta was born in Geneva on May 1, 1931, to a Swiss mother and Italian father. At the young age of 23, he was recruited by Universal Geneve, one of the most renowned watchmaking manufacturers, particularly respected for its chronographs. Alongside his collaborations with the finest watch brands, Genta created his own company in 1969, developing his eponymous brand and producing exceptional pieces for unique clients like the present lot. The lot offered here is the result of years of experimentation: this watch features a dial made with one of the most appreciated materials that can be used in horology: mother-of-pearl. Moreover it is a bicolor mother-of-pearl and dark green with Arabic numerals, at the top, sector for the retrograde minutes and at the bottom, aperture for the jump hour, completed by a red arrow hand. Its penetrating color is placed into a three-body steel case with a case back with 6 screws, rounded bezel, straight lugs and a sapphire crystal that cover the golf ball symbol in the middle. This watch is preserved in good overall condition, at the time of production this watch was intended for a man’s wrist, but it would also be suitable for a lady both passionate of the golf sport.
