This stunning Universal Geneve dates to approximately 1968, it is their famous triple register ‘Compax’ watch, which is running one of the most renowned movements the famous Valjoux caliber 72 which many would say is the finest chronograph movement of all time ,lets not forget it is the exact same movement that runs the now million pound Rolex Paul Newman daytonas. this watch shouldn't be compared with others running the far more commonplace calibre 281,
These UG’s are amongst the highest grade chronographs of the period and everything about them reflects that. The case is solid stainless steel (unlike many of the period) and is stunning in design, sharing many of the same design features as the famous Speedmaster, especially around the lugs.
The watch really is remarkable, there are very few of these available on the market and non in this stunning original condition. A very special piece, which wears extremely well at 35 mm excluding the crown.
A great investment and ideal every day chronograph
