Watches from the Mind of Gerald Genta

Gerald Genta had a huge hand in changing the watch world we all love for the better, and so in this Split Seconds, CQ, Jay, and Rego all talk about the man, his watches, and their impact. For the full episode: In the full episode, the duo is joined by WatchTrader Zach Rego to talk about the legendary watch designer and visionary, Gerald Genta. The guys dive into not only the personal life of Genta, but also how his revolutionary impact on the watch world changed the landscape forever. Remember the Universal Geneve Polerouter? Rego does and will teach you more about some of Genta's earliest designs. Genta, as a visionary, foresaw the appeal that thinner watches would have on timepiece enthusiasts before that was considered a trend. Let's face it, his designs are some of the hottest watches in the market today. Speaking of the market, #Regonomics with Zach Rego walks us through the current landscape of the open market, how the Genta designs are still appreciating assets, and how one model (hint: Patek Philippe 5711) in particular is close to impossible to get your hands on. Also, the three have some fun with the game "Buy, Sell, Trade". The options include the Patek Philippe Nautilus “Tiffany & Co.” 5711G-001, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak 15400ST.OO.1220ST.04, and last but not least by any means, the Bvlgari Octo Finissimo 102713. Of Genta's designs, which is your favorite -- the Patek Philippe Nautilus, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, or his redesign of the IWC Ingenieur? Comment your answers!
