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 three-body yellow-gold case is extremely well preserved and the case back is set with 6 screws. Moreover it has rounded bezel, straight lugs and a sapphire crystal the cover of the beautiful black dial. The background black color is split by luminous Arabic numerals at the top, inside the sector for the retrograde minutes while at the bottom is located the aperture for the jump hour.
