Up for grabs is a rare Berthoud Geneve chronograph, circa 1930s. Berthoud Geneve is most notably known for their connection to Universal Geneve (Louis Eduoard Berthoud, a notable watchmaker, worked for UG while also manufacturing his own watches). This example features an incredible and uncommon multi-color sector dial. Often housed in chromed cases, these watches were likely marketed as the “budget” UG.
This example of an early Berthoud Geneve chronograph is in great vintage condition. The case shows light wear, consistent with the aging of chromed cases, but no plating loss whatsoever. The dial is in good condition, with normal wear, and an even patina set in across the dial.
