Beginning in 1970, he created some of the most high-end iconic watch designs including Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, the Patek Philippe Nautilus, certain version of the Omega Constellation, the Bvlgari Bvlgari, and the reinvention of the IWC Ingenieur. He also launched the watch brand that hears his name, and that this watch is from.
With a resume that includes so many luxurious labels, it’s it is no surprise that Gerald Genta incorporated the sophistication of an elite brand, while deftly designing ultra-sophisticated and daring designs.
