HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
Up until 1967 we have a table of serial numbers for Universal Geneve. The serial number on this case back is just higher than this table gives us, so we can presume it was made in 1967.
While Universal Geneve have made some excellent and highly collected Tri Compax chronographs and Polerouter sports watches it is the mother of pearl dial that is the main even there, backed up by quality mechanicals. This natural material is constantly reflecting different greens, blues and pinks that will be difficult to become bored of. Inside the quality continues, with a 17 jewel manual wind movement with nice Côtes de Genève striped decoration that only the watchmaker would see. All is working well too as you would expect. The case is gold plated with a stainless steel back and shows little to no signs of wear and tear. The crown is set with a cabochon polished stone, possibly sapphire. The lizard strap is new, and could be swapped for a different colour or material if preferred.
This watch will be supplied with the original presentation box and our Certificate of Authenticity.
