    Mailman Stopped By Today

    Been looking for some 40's and 50's watches with nice movements and found a Universal Geneve that is unique. It's 32.5mm w/o crown and has flat, wide and long male lugs and a two tone dial with a silver outer minute track. The crystal needs to be changed to a flat, low profile one so the entire dial can be viewed. Movement is a caliber 263 UG and is running well. The dial has seen better days and is spotted up but would like to hear opinions on originality of the dial and blued hands. Crown is slightly removed from case and is a replacement? Not sure what type of strap to use and 17mm DeBeers was handy so I put that on for now but open to recommendations.

    Really nice watch. I actually like the condition of the dial. The damage is equally spattered. :) And those lugs are amazing. With a new crown and crystal it will be even better. :)

    Crown a terrible replacement. Must be twice as thick and closer to the case. A new crystal cannot be entirely flat, it should just have a flatter dome and the sides must not go straight down.

    I've never seen lugs like that. How does a strap stay on them?

    You can buy female spring bars that fit this type of lug. I got some for a1937 Hamilton from Esslinger but I'm sure any supply house carries them. I bit harder to use.
