Genta's 1st and Probably Most Powerful Strike

Friday, September 24, 2021

The Rolex ref9630 King Midas is definitely the most significant early strike of Genta, given it was designed by the master Gerald Genta for Rolex in 1962 and so ten years prior to the characteristic integrated bracelet watch designed for Audemars Piguet, the Royal Oak.

The more it is viewed the better one understands its singularity and its iconic character: the sun crown topping the asymmetric braceletwatch, shaped like the ancient Greek temple of all gods, reflecting light angles, heavy but balanced and comfortable to wear. And it measures time... but only in Gold.
