Description

This is a Universal Geneve Triple Date Moonphase watch from the 1940s. This example is outfitted with a silver two-tone dial, luminous markers, and luminous leaf hands. Most of these triple-dates were non-lume, so to find a lume example is desirable.  This watch was very advanced when released and developed by UG, and still remains sought after by collectors.

The thing that stands out the most on this watch is the large, lapped lugs, which gives the watch a beefy appearance. Inside, the watch is outfitted with a UG Cal. 291, and is able to display the day of the week, the date, month, and it also tracks the phases of the moon.

Good examples of these watches are few and far between – most of them were unfortunately refinished, ruining the originality of the dial. The date changing pushers on the side of the case are possibly a replacement, but changing the dates is very easy with them. This is a wonderful example in excellent vintage condition, with an unpolished, sharp case, and mint dial.  The original radium is present in the dial, aged to a golden yellow color, and the hands appear to have been color-matched to the dial at some point in the past.  The winding crown was likely replaced at some point in the past as well.
