Description
This 1960s Universal Genève Compax with UG Caliber 130 (Valjoux 72) movement and the "oversized" case with a diameter of 38mm is very special and extremely rare. Universal Genève watches typically came in sizes between 34 and 36mm. This watch is a rarity with its 38mm steel case. The brushed silver dial with baton markers, blue Tachymeter scale and "Dauphine" hands gives the chronograph an elegant flair. The dial is in a mint condition with patina spottings, which wonderfully reflect the natural aging process of the watch. All lume dots are intact except those at 1 and 3 o'clock. The sharp case and clearly readable reference- and serial number engravings on it's back prove an unpolished case. The legendary, 100% original Valjoux 72 movement is the heart of this magnificent chronograph.

All in all a rare, sporty-elegant watch, very sought after by vintage watch collectors.
