Gérald Charles Genta
Swiss watch designer
In 1972 Gérald Genta wrote watch history with the stainless steel watch Royal Oak, developed for Audemars Piguet. In 1976 Patek Philippe presented the luxury sports watch Nautilus, created by Gérald Genta.
Already in 1969 he founded his own watch manufacturing Gérald Genta. He saw himself as a craftsman and artist, and because he wanted to dedicate himself to painting, he sold his brand 1998 to an Asian company. Shortly afterwards it was resold to the Bulgari group.
