This Universal Geneva Compax chronograph is in extremely well preserved condition. It is referred to by collectors as the 'Nina Rindt' as it was famously worn by the model through the 1960s to 1970s. Nina was the wife of racecar driver Jochen Rindt.
The watch is very reminiscent of chronographs found during this time, like the Omega Speedmaster or Rolex Daytona and the watch is powered by the legendary Valjoux 72 movement, again, like the Rolex Daytona.
