Watch Designer Gerald Genta Is Dead


The designer of the iconic Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak and the Omega’s Seamaster Constellation. He was 80 years old and left an indelible mark on the luxury steel market.

The timepiece genius was 80 years old and was born in Geneva in May 1931.

Among his pieces is the Gerald Genta Octo Granda Sonnerie Tourbillion, which features four gongs and rings out the Westminster Quarters tune every hour.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The WWR Team
