Gérald Genta: the designer of the modern watchmaking

29 October 2013 | , , ,

The touch of the designer Gérald Genta defined the feature of the “generation” of sport watches of the 70s. Watches that are, still nowadays, a dream of many watch collectors.

Gérald Genta designed the Nautilus, by Patek Philippe, the 222 by Vacheron Constantin, predecessor of the current Overseas, the Royal Oak by Audemar Piguet and the Ingegneur by IWC.

An additional feature tied three among those four watches, who were equipped with the same ultrathin caliber by Jaeger-LeCoultre. As all the watch lovers know, this is the movement JLC 920 ultra-thin, which was called 28-255 on the Patek Philippe, 1120 on the Vacheron Constantin, 2121 on the Audemar Piguet.
