Genta and Daniels’ punctual yet untimely legacy

It seems watch brands are regarded with more humanity and respect while watchmakers pour in their heart and soul. As a result, creators exhale the life out of themselves and into the brand. Identities are swallowed up and chiseled down to nothing more than moving parts. Fashion houses in the clothing industry celebrate their most famous, legendary designers, flagging their names as a seal of ‘haute legitimacy’.

Who flagged Charles Gérald Genta’s name? The person responsible for the Royal Oak, Nautilus and Bvlgari, Bvlgari – enjoying this honour only in spirit. Why doesn’t the creator behind the world’s most commercially successful designs today have no successful watch brand to his name despite his efforts? This discussion speculates, in the name of master of design Gérald Genta and master of movement George Daniels- AKA the faces of true genius- why the masses revert to what they know (the brand name) rather than the person that made that brand legendary. What made these two masters of time untimely?
