Gerald Genta Retro Classic: The Definitive Genta Masterpiece

"To call something a definitive masterpiece in relation to the genius that was Gérald Genta is quite something. Especially when the watch in question is not the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, the Patek Philippe Nautilus, or even my personal favorite, the Pasha de Cartier.

While each and every one of these designs is brilliant, none were created free of restraints for the artist: while Genta did design them, the choice of paint and canvas weren’t entirely his.

The only thing that this "definitive masterpiece" can do, is blowing masterpieces like the Omega Constellation "C" or the UG Polerouter.

If a watch is bought by the great IWB, by definition, it is not ghey.

^^^That's right.

Never been a fan of Gerries.

There's one with bumps all around the case that have spread to the crown like a rash.

Horrible stuff for nowhere near enough.
