Description

Up for grabs is one of the most desirable and undoubtedly rare Universal Geneve chronographs in existence – the so-called “Big Eye” Uni-Compax, circa 1960s.  Housed in a larger, 37mm case, and powered a UG Cal. 125 (Valjoux 23), these were a large break from the typical sports model chronographs of the 1960s, and especially those produced by UG.  Not many of these are known to exist, only coming to market a handful of times per year.

The watch is itself is in great condition. The case has been lightly polished, but still retains their original beveled edges. The reverse-panda dial is perfect, with no flaws. The lume on the dial has aged to a yellow color, with some loss on the dial (which is very common for this model, and most are found in this state), and the hands have aged to a darker, green color. The serial numbers and “stainless steel” are still visible on the caseback.
