A lovely Ladies cocktail watch by Universal Geneve, from a period when this company was at their best.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From the production dates f the Universal 08 manual wind movement we can date this watch to being made circa 1964. The hallmark is a Swiss one, which doesn’t include any dating codes.
The watch is difficult to fault. The dial doesn’t show many marks, even when viewed under a 12x loupe. The case is solid and only shows slight tool marks where it has been opened over the years, but these are hidden by the new leather strap. The gold case is stamped with the Universal logo and hallmarked 0.750 gold. The hand winding in house movement (albeit shared with Movado) is running well, and the crown is original.
This watch will be supplied with a presentation box and our Certificate of Authenticity.
