Referring to Gérald Genta, you will think of the classic Patek Philippe Nautilus, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, Omega Constellation and so on. However, few people know that he had ever designed a superior fake Rolex watch during 1960s to 1970s – Rolex King Midas.
The gold case copy Rolex King Midas is inspired by the ancient Greek art. It looks avant-garde and trendy even now. The inspiration is exactly the Parthenon temple. If you place the watch on the side, you will find the triangle is just like the roof of the temple.
While the highlight of this perfect imitation watch is the crown which looks like the sun over the temple. Unlike the luxurious bracelet and case, the dial has been designed to be very simple and concise.
