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. This watch features a dial made with one of the most appreciated materials that can be used in horology: mother-of-pearl. Moreover the dial has Arabic numerals, at the top, sector for the retrograde minutes, and at the bottom, aperture for the jump hour, in the middle the presence of the famous Walt Disney icon of Mickey Mouse stands out making this piece a beautiful creation. Its penetrating color is placed into a three-body steel case with a case back with 6 screws, straight lugs, sapphire crystal and embellished by a very rare circle of round-cut diamond-set bezel.
