S otheby’s New York is pleased to present our curated Fine Watches Online auction, open from 6-14 September.

Icons by Gerald Genta

Every industry needs an innovator – someone who pushes ideas and design beyond the usual conservative constraints. The watch industry, notoriously cautious, owes much to one man, who single-handedly accelerated timepiece design and aesthetics beyond the conventional and archetypal. Gérald Genta is synonymous with some of the most iconic and enduring watch designs of the 20th century.

The Rolex Tridor

The Rolex President Tridor was a cutting-edge twist to the classic Day-Date model in the 1980’s. Following the trend of many luxury jewelry designers, the Tridor dressed the Day-Date with all three colors of gold: yellow, pink, and white. The center links of the President bracelet were meticulously designed and soldered so that each color gold run vertically through the entire length of the bracelet. The present lot is further heighted by diamond set bezel and lugs, and a champagne Jubilee dial.

The Modern Dress Watch
