The 1960s Universal Geneve Tri-Compax with acrylic tachymeter bezel needs no introduction. It’s been revered for its perfectly proportioned dial, chunky, pragmatic chronograph pushers, and overall sports-driven design. After a simple glance at this UG, you’ll get all the hype. And it’s no surprise these seem to grow in price by the day.
The example offered today is in excellent vintage condition. The dial is in great condition, with no chips, scratches, pitting, or spotting. The moonphase disk has retained it’s shine, and the lume plots are almost all still in tact. The tachy bezel has seen some damage, but is in nice shape, as most of these are completely destroyed. The case on this example is also unpolished, and the serial and reference numbers are still visible on the outside of the caseback.
