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: gold. Its penetrating double color, white and yellow gold, is made even more evident by the total lack of indexes and by the unique presence of the black signature that match perfectly with the hands. Completed by the cabochon to adjust the time at 3 o’clock 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.
