Up for grabs is a rare and desirable Universal Geneve Uni-Compax chronograph, dating to the 1940s. What makes this example special is the use of an oversized waterproof “Spillmann” case to house the watch. These cases were used by a variety of brands in the 1940s, and at 38mm, they were very large for the era.
This example is in great vintage condition. The case is unpolished and razor sharp. The dial has even patina and wear throughout, consistent with a watch from the 1940s. The original radium lume is still present on both hands and dial, aging to a gorgeous orange in the hands, and a darker brown color on the dial.
This watch also comes with its original and period-correct steel buckle, an extremely rare accessory.
