Lot Essay

Recent years have seen an explosion in interest in vintage chronographs made by Universal Genève and for good reason due to the high-quality nature of their watches. The present watch is a stunning and mint example of a large chronograph in pink gold. The watch appears to have been worn only a few times over the course of its life, with a dial and case in time-capsule condition. Seeing it and trying it on may trick someone into feeling they have traveled back in time to when the watch was first produced. For someone seeking the finest condition and quality, this Uni-Compax, offered at no reserve, is a trophy.
