    Is this a legit Universal Geneve 18k case & movement?

    Hi all, while the movement looks legit to me I am wondering about the
    case back (and case). The pics don't seem to have the 18K hallmark (lady in profile).
    Any ideas?

    I have never seen that sort of case before on a UG but I suspect nothing is wrong. The case is well made and looks like it fits the movement well without any adaptations. The case back goes with the rest of the case, as demonstrated by the ledge on the case back fitting in with the notch on the case in the same position (as shown by the notch for the winding stem).

    @Hartmut, thanks. I found a similar UG on the net and the back of the case also only had "18 K. Gold" stamped on it. Must have been before the hallmark with the cameo became the standard.
    The fact that you haven't ever seen this case style must mean it rare



    Pic of the other UG:

    Well, I haven't seen nearly every watch model that there has ever been made! I have a decent try at all Zeniths but all other watches, no chance.....

    Congratulations - looks like an interesting watch.

    The movement is (looks) genuine. I am curious to see the dial. Can you show it to us ?
