In light of the watch world’s renewed interest in slim, elegant and skeletonized timepieces, we are pleased to offer here this beautiful Gerald Genta Pocket watch. 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 most important design like the Nautilus, Royal Oak and more. Its perfect proportions combined with the very thin case and the skeletonized structure make this watch one of the nicest examples ever produced from Gerald Genta regarding time-only watches. The two bodies in 18k yellow gold of 42 mm in diameter, diamond set corners and white-gold bow, reveals the intricacy of the mechanism completed by diamond-set Roman indexes and black baton hands, while on the opposite side, the glass case back allows for an even more impressive view of the complicated caliber which can be admired in all of their glory.
