Catalogue Note

The Universal Genève Space-Compax operates with a Valjoux caliber 72, the same movement that powers the famed Rolex Daytona. It is often referenced as the watch designed to compete with the Omega Speedmaster as the watch of choice for NASA during the Space Race.  The present lot is well preserved, with the case and reference number still legible to the case back.
