Gerald Genta's Gefica Safari Photos coming soon  0 Comments


This is an image of the Gefica Safari that has a case made of Bronze. This specific piece belongs to a private owner who gladly wanted to share the watch as being a well worn timepiece with all its tarnish and copper oxide glory. At first I thought that this is an odd feature. Now I am not sure. It has a very old world charm about it. Much like a trinket from the Ghenghis Khan period. Clearly a watch not meant to be molly coddled or polished. Its big and brash and easily makes all tough sports watches look prissy by comparison.
Could this be the new trend for 2008 watches? A hark back to time where experimentation of metals and amalgams were the norm? Will 2008 be the year that brands experiment with metal oxidation and tarnish as a standard finish?
In any case, keep an eye out for the photomontage of this new piece coming out soon.
