Description
This 1940's ultra rare (less than 5 examples known) Universal Genève Compax Reference 12324 is all about beauty and style. From the very first glance at this masterpiece you can understand why Universal Genève enjoys the reputation of a highly praised manufacturer of elegant and complicated watches.

The rose gold dial with its three sub-dials is mysterious. In the front view, the sub-dials seem to have the same color as the main dial. However, if you look at the watch from the side, the sub-dials turn into a slightly darker reddish golden hue, which stands out from the main dial. Simply magical. The dial is in an excellent condition with some patina spots. The outstanding rose gold case with exotic faceted lugs is in a great condition. The reference and serial number are still deep engraved on the snap caseback. The rectangular pushers and the crown are mint. The manual movement Calibre 283 is preserved in great condition.

This ultra rare watch fits perfectly in any vintage collection as a long-term investment, but also as a daily watch, which reflects the personality of its owner in a best possible way.
