    UG Uni-Compax - Dial.

    Hello, everyone. I'd appreciate some help with an UG Uni-Compax Chronograph from late forties. I'm not quite sure about its dial: does it seem original to you? As for the rest, watch is fine: solid gold case, crisp inscriptions on caseback and crisp hallmarks engraved inside it. Hands may or may not be original - I'm not quite sure about this either, since, as is notorious, UG displayed a miriad of hand/dial combination styles those days. Reference number on caseback is 12445. I hope you can help me.

    Shooting from the hip, I'm going to say that the dial is ok, and the SWISS is hidden behind the rehaut. The hour and minute hands are not correct IMO. They are far too long, and probably the wrong shape and color for this reference.
