Gerald Genta is always synonymous with audacity, innovation and often bold design, usually also combined with the use of less canonical material. Speaking about design, everybody has clearly in mind the Nautilus and Royal Oak. While regarding the materials, which have appeared in recent years at the auction, watches made in coral, titanium and more others. The present example presented in excellent overall condition strongly portrays Genta’s iconic design and aura through its design e unusual creations. The dial in fact is very uncommon and made with an unusual combination of three color and pattern, green and light blue as background and the mother-of-pearl for the retrograde sector located between 8 and 3 with painted Arabic numerals for the minutes, aperture at 4 for the jump hour, and in the middle, a polychrome portrait of “Donald Duck”, indicating the minutes via his arms and a golf club. The two body case in steel with a 35 mm diameter are in great conditions, with a case back with 6 screws, rounded bezel, straight lugs and a sapphire crystal that cover the beautiful dial with its iconic logo.
