Gerald Genta Disney Tokyo Resort Limited Edition Watch
Mickey is 80 years old and Disney Tokyo (we say "Tokyo Disney") is 25 years old. As a kid I recall wanting to visit all the Disney Lands/Worlds around the globe. So far I have hit up two. Not very good follow-through. In celebration of the anniversary, Gerald Genta (who has partnered with Disney for a while to make Mickey Mouse watches) will release this limited edition Disney Tokyo Resort watch.
The timepiece features two classically styled Mickeys on the dial. The larger of the two on the top is reaching out and grabbing an actual diamond located at the "25" marker on the retrograde minute dial. You surely know what that 25 stands for. The hours are shown through a jumping hour widow located off center to the left of Mickey, while the seconds are displayed normally around the whole dial. The lower part of the dial is a retrograde date indicator with the hand being Mickey's arm. The case of the Gerald Genta watch is in titanium and inside is an automatic mechanical movement with a solid gold rotor. The strap is sporty and rubber. Certainly the cream of the crop for Disney watch collectors, and to a slightly lesser degree Gerald Genta watch collectors. Available in just 80 pieces.
