About the Watch

Gerald Genta is responsible for several iconic timepiece designs, including the Omega Constellation, IWC Ingenieur, and Cartier Pasha de Cartier, to name a few. However, the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and the Patek Philippe Nautilus have since stood out in a very decisive manner that they have become equated with Gerald Genta’s character.

Each of the luxury sports versions has faced unprecedented waiting lists in the last half-decade, particularly the Nautilus, which was announced as discontinued. With the launching of the Genius Genta, a new timepiece company called Genius Watches hopes to honor Genta’s accomplishments as well as the two-grail pieces. The Genius Genta is thus a hybrid of the Royal Oak and the Nautilus, taking inspiration from H. Moser & CieFrankenstein .’s Swiss Classics wristwatch.

The hidden crown, which is split into two halves, allows the Genius ‘White Legacy’ watch to be dressed in both directions, with the 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock positions changeable. This timepiece features the Royal Oak’s iconic octagonal body with hexagonal fasteners and the Nautilus’ porthole-stimulated bezel. Moreover, the dial is separated and includes both the Royal Oak’s Tapisserie as well as the Nautilus’ horizontal bands. In addition, you will notice both of the classic timepiece bracelets in one band.

The caseback is robust, thanks to the original copyright Gérald Genta layout and more complex front-loader design, which allows the dial, movement, and all other internal components to be installed from beneath the bezel instead of through the caseback. The casing’s wings function as securing points, keeping the piece’s face in place and providing the wristwatch with the essential water resistance.

Genius ‘White Legacy’ features automatic movement. This includes SWISS – AUTOMATIC SELLITA SW200 caliber mechanical self-winding movement with a rate of 28’800 vibrations per hour as well as a power reserve of 38 hours. The hours, minutes, and seconds are also displayed.

The dial is white Guillochè, while the push-in crown features an o-ring seal on both sides. When it comes to the spheres, they are made of brass with swiss super luminous inlays.

In an era when extensive steel sports timepieces are the norm, a vintage sports watch like the 39mm Genius ‘White Legacy’ stands out as an exclusive and sophisticated piece. The Genius ‘White Legacy’ is incredibly unusual, more so in such great condition. It is a hybrid of the Royal Oak and the Nautilus most desired and legendary watch.
