Description

Offered in like-new condition, this Universal Geneve Compax in stainless steel and plated yellow gold is a more modern iteration of the model that is considered by many to be one of the most iconic chronograph watches ever produced. From the 1940s on, UG produced incredible Compax models that have garnered nicknames and seen increasingly strong values. This model offers a much more entry-level option into the UG chronograph family.

The watch is in excellent condition with only few light signs of surface wear.

The dial and hands are in excellent condition. There is one small spot on the dial between 12 and 1 o'clock.

The movement is running at time of cataloguing; however, it was not tested for the accuracy of time or duration of the power reserve and may need service at the buyer's discretion.
