    Universal Geneve Gold Vintage Watch Automatic

    • Dear Gurus:
      I would be most appreciative if someone could identify the model number, years of production and potential value for this interesting Universal Geneve Automatic watch. I searched for over 2 hours and could not find anything.
      Thank you in advance,
      Dave

    Re: Universal Geneve Gold Vintage Watch Automatic

    Hi and welcome on board

    Your model must be an early to mid 50's model probably powered by a bumper automatic movement or perhaps a micro rotor movement. The best way to know is to have the case back opened, the movement checked and have the serial number.
    Valuations aren't given on WUS and are opposed to the board rules which clearly state no valuations

    Hope this helps

    best regards

    I have seen this sort of "pre-polerouter" model before, but I'm not familiar with that type of bezel on a UG.

    I happened to come across this watch for sale, and while not identical, I think it may provide some insight into the OP's watch.

    Thanks Dan!!!
    I documented the following numbers on the case:
    Top: 204606-1
    Bottom: 2131894
    Does that help with the identification?
    Sincerely,
    Dave

    I don't know the exact reference, but congrats for your UG :) It's nice and simple. I love that maison!

    Hi Watch Friends:
    I just wanted to post the internals because it is such a masterpiece of fine Swiss watchmaking.
