    Universal

    Just purchased this nice Universal Geneve ... next steps are two replace the glass and buy a nice bracelet. What do think? Can you tell the age by the numbers on the case back or do I need to remove the back? Let me know if you have any thoughts, comments, etc.

    Thanks,
    Macotignola

    I'm sure more knowledgeable responses will follow.
    But I would guess it falls somewhere in the late 40's/early 50's by the look of it.

    Try to get that crystal polished before replacing. You'd be surprised how many scratches will come out with a buffing.
    I've got more Converse sneakers than watches, but it is a close race.

    UG serial numbers were sometimes on the case back.

    https://forums.watchuseek.com/f295/un...-a-179195.html would date it to 1945.
