Mechanical automatic movementPreview BASELWORLD 2017: The Genie Gents 42
In 2017, the Genie brand attires men’s wrists with a new creation combining functionality and sturdiness for pleasant daily wear. The classic design of the steel case is enlivened by subtle two-tone contrasts with a yellow PVD-coated bezel and crown creating a gilded effect. The delicately structured dial picks up this refined colour scheme, while displaying perfect legibility.
This remarkably understated watch face is punctuated by applied hour-markers and features small seconds at 6 o’clock and a date window at 3 o’clock, along with the famous Genie “bell” logo appearing at noon. At the heart of this timepiece beats an automatic movement distilling signature Swiss precision, while a brown leather strap secured by a steel folding clasp sets the finishing touch.
