Gérald Genta’s Latest Gefica: A Tribute to Africa

Gérald Genta has created its first all-white timepiece, inspired by Africa’s snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro. The Gefica Kilimanjaro is the latest release in the brand’s signature bronze Gefica collection, the original of which was designed in 1988 as a hunting watch due to its inability to reflect sunlight and moonlight on expeditions. Only 100 numbered pieces will be offered this month from Gefica, each made by a single watchmaker in Switzerland. The titanium and bronze Gefica Kilimanjaro features a white strap and dial and automatic jumping hours and retrograde minutes, seconds, and calendar. Gérald Genta celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2009, and the Gefica Kilimanjaro, $17,400, is one of the few pieces offered to honor the anniversary. (www.geraldgenta.com)
