The Gerald Genta Gefica Safari timepiece is believed to have been created by the Swiss watch designer Gérald Genta upon a request from three hunters – with the watch’s name derived from the first two letters of their names: Geoffroy, Fissore and Canali.
The case of the watch is made of bronze, famous for its patina-prone quality that, over time, reflects the watch’s wearer and environment. Bronze was also a good choice because it wouldn't reflect light and spook an animal, and because its warm earthy tones remind of the dusty African landscape and the rugged nature of hunting. The case measures 36 mm in diameter and boasts a studded motif around both the bezel and the bottom edge.
This model is powered by a quartz movement and features the following functions: hours, minutes, GMT, day, date, moon phase indicator, and alarm. The watch is worn on a black leather strap, secured on the wrist with a deployment clasp fitted with a compass.
Offered in a pre-owned condition, this timepiece includes a gift box.
