Ed Sheeran – Genius ‘White Legacy’ in stainless steel


English singer and songwriter Ed Sheeran is wearing the 39mm Genius ‘White Legacy,’ in stainless steel with a white guilloche dial, a look inspired by Mr. Genta, known in the watch world as the” Genius” of sports watches.

Can you see which two models the watch is a mix of, and how do you think it looks?

About The Watch

Imagine having an iconic watch in your possession and now try and imagine if you can, having two iconic pieces in one. That is the true definition of genius and class, and that is what the Genius White Legacy is all about. Gerald Genta was the instrumental genius responsible for Cartier’s Pasha de Cartier, Omega’s Constellation, and the IWC Ingenieur, among other notable designs. To date, his most outstanding designs are the Patek Philippe Nautilus and the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak.

Ed Sheeran is not only a renowned English singer and songwriter but also a watch collector who owns the iconic Genius White Legacy. His career is as inspirational as the Genius watch, which is truly one of a kind.

The Genius White Legacy is a combination of these two iconic designs with two iconic bracelets, dials, and cases in one package. Following the footsteps of H. Moser & Cie.’s book with its Frankenstein Swiss Icons watch, the Genius Genta combines the spark of the Royal Oak and the Nautilus.

Genius White Legacy has a wide case measuring 39mm and a stainless steel 316 L bracelet. The watch has both the Nautilus porthole-inspired bezel and the Royal Oak’s signature octagonal case with hexagon screws. It also features a white guilloche dial with Swiss super-luminous brass hands. The watch functions through automatic movement via a Swiss-made Automatic Sellita  SW200 AIG2 and has a waterproof level of 5ATM.

Swiss-made watches across the globe enjoy an established reputation, which is associated with precision, reliability, and quality. Whenever you see the word ‘’Swiss-made” on any dial, you immediately know that the watch was made with fine craftsmanship. Moreover, some Swiss brands have been on the market for more than 250 years and remain the epitome of the watch-making industry.

In addition, this Genius White Legacy has sapphire glass with a silver rim and anti-glare coating. It also comes in a t-crown with a double o-ring. On the other hand, this amazing piece features a 10.8mm butterfly buckle as well as a 24.8mm lug.

When you split the White Legacy into two parts, it has a hidden crown that enables you to rock the watch in both ways, with the 12 o’clock interchanging with the 6 o’clock. Likewise, this Genius wristwatch has a split dial and has both the horizontal bars and Tapisserie of the Nautilus and Royal Oak.

The prices for these two luxury models have skyrocketed with unmatched wait-lists in the last half-decade, especially with the announcement that the Nautilus 5711 has been discontinued. Genius watch, a new brand, has stepped in to honor the work of Genta and the two iconic watches at the same time hence the Genius Genta launch.
