Gerald Genta History

Christie's called it the "Fabergé of watches" and the Wall Street Journal described its watches as “the world’s most complicated and pricey”.

Its history began in 1969, when Gérald Genta was the first to describe himself as a designer watchmaker, thereby placing as much importance on design as on the mechanism. Designing for all the top brands as well as his own, he invented the Nautilus for Patek Philippe, the Royal Oak for Audemars Piguet and the Constellation for Omega, as well as working for Piaget, IWC, Universal Genève, Bulgari, Vacheron Constantin, etc.

In 1996, the Genta brand was the first in the world to produce a wristwatch combining a jumping hour with retrograde minutes.

He also created the Timex, the most-sold watch in the world, with 30 million pieces produced, demonstrating an ability to juggle complex mechanisms, limited edition watches and digital watches for the general public.

Gérald Genta died in 2011 aged 80. Towards the end of his life, he devoted himself to his other passion, painting.
