WATCHES

Gérald Genta returns with a new Mickey Mouse watch

Words by Rob Chilton

Continuing a range that started in the 1980s

High-end horology isn’t always a serious business. Legendary watch designer Gérald Genta – the man who created the iconic Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and the Patek Philippe Nautilus as well as watches for IWC – was responsible in the 1980s for a series of watches released by his own company that depicted favourite Disney characters such as Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy.

The 41mm watch comes with a red fabric strap

Production on these beloved models stalled but then returned in 2019. Now, in 2021, the Gérald Genta house – which is now owned by Bulgari – has unveiled the new Arena Retrograde Mickey Mouse timepiece.

Announced at Geneva Watch Days, the eye-catching watch is limited to just 150 pieces. Mickey’s arm tells the minutes on a 210-degree sector of the watch’s dial, while hours are displayed through an aperture at 5 o’clock. Equipped with a 41mm steel case, the playful watch comes on a red fabric strap.

Genta, who died in 2011, founded his company in 1969 and obtained a licensing deal with Disney in the 1980s, which is continuing to be a smart business move. The highly collectable watch is available for sale now, priced at AED 66,000.
