Gerald Genta- Octo Ultimate Fantasy Tourbillon

The Gerald Genta Octo Ultimate Fantasy Tourbillon watch unites the charm of the Gerald Genta "Fantasy" conception, with the horological prestige of Abraham-Louis Breguet's famous invention. The complexity and fine craftsmanship of the distinctive Octo watch case, highlights the intricate three-dimensional dial which places a relaxing Mickey Mouse at its center, "seated" upon the octagonal tourbillon aperture. The tourbillon completes a single revolution every minute, upon a concealed bridge of transparent sapphire, highlighting the mystery of the legendary complication. Another captivating technical treat is the hour display, whose retrograde operation has become a technical specialty of the house of Gerald Genta.
The sapphire crystal caseback of this rare Gerald Genta watch presents viewers with a breathtaking reverse view of the slim self-winding movement, whose fine decorative flourishes are crowned by a magnificently detailed rotor in solid gold which recreates Mickey Mouse's famous, grinning face. Power reserve of the barrel is 64 hours.
Presented in an edition of 25 pieces, each Gerald Genta Octo Ultimate Fantasy watch is fitted with a crocodile strap, and a luxurious deployant clasp decorated with a skeletonized Gerald Genta "G" logo.
