Gérald Genta’s work in the watch world is nothing short of prolific. He’s the man behind the design of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and the Patek Philippe Nautilus, of course, but that’s just half the story. Genta created his own eponymous label in 1969, and through it, he explored a bevy of designs, one of them being the “Biretro” layout that’s been revived in 2020 through the new Gérald Genta Arena Bi-Retrograde Sport. The watch is a follow up to the 2019 release of the Gérald Genta 50th Anniversary Arena Bi-Retro. Both watches use the arena case, named for its resemblance to an actual arena, and both feature a jumping hour window at 12 o’clock with a minute track along the top half of the dial. On the bottom half, you’ll find a date track. Every 60 minutes, the minute hand will snap back to zero as the hour counter rolls over, and the date will snap back every 31 days, all thanks to the BVL 300 caliber inside.
