The Often Overlooked Designers Behind Thousands of Swiss Watches

Alexey Tarkhanov, reporting for the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation, reflects back on the achievements of Gerald Genta and sheds some light on the work of some of today's leading watch designers in the Swiss watch industry, including Fabrizio Buonamassa Stigliani, Martin Frei, Eric Giroud, Guy Bove, and Emmanuel Gueit. The latter of whom built upon Genta's work at Audemars Piguet, with the Royal Oak Offshore, and assisted Rolex with their—now retired—Cellini Collection.
