Description
Universal Genève is one of the most interesting vintage watch brands right now. Those watches rely on fantastic designs from the ingenious Gerald Genta and technical firsts like the micro-rotor.

This Universal Genève Compax is truly one of the most beautiful Chronographs ever produced. The overall condition of the Compax offered here is absolutely mint. The case is in absolute mint condition as well. It consists of 18 carat pink gold. It is unpolished and shows sharp edges. The size of the diameter is 37mm, which was very rare in the 1940s. The three subregister dials are in perfect, flawless condition. It has a Telemetre scale in red and a Tachymetre scale in blue (60-1000 km/h). The 100% original radium lume is still present in the arabic numerals as well as in the hands and shines nicely under UV light. The engraving on the caseback makes the watch even more special. Three simple letters - “F.A.B.“ which stand for "Fuerza Aérea Brasileña" or "Brazilian Air Force." During the first half of the 20th century Brazil trusted Universal Genève to supply chronographs to its pilots. This Universal Geneve Compax is powered by the 17 jewel manual wind caliber 287 movement with small second in the 9 o’clock subdial.

The UG Compax reference 124107 offered here is a great vintage watch in mint condition. Besides this UG Compax is ultra rare and hard to find anywhere in the world.

If you love Universal Genève Compax models, this watch is the perfect one for you.
