    Universal Geneve Uni-Compax

    I'm considering pulling the trigger on this watch. Would love to hear thoughts and opinions as to the originality of the piece.

    Looks genuine to me. The movement's a Universal 285:

    Hi Bub,

    Really nice aged dial. Agree with mkws it looks good, triple signed and nothing looks out of place.

    Regards,

    Looks sweet and nice original look. Not to throw the thread off too much, but with these 18k cases where they are matched with thier movements, are the hands usually 18k also?

    Looks OK to me too. At the same time, don't overpay heavily just because it's gold - the case is a little thin and has a massive base metal movement holder ring to reduce the precious metal content.....

    This is very good advice, I've looked at some of these "solid gold" chronographs and a lot of them have bent lugs due to them being hollow and the case backs on some are so thin they can be bent by doing them up to tightly on your wrist

    I'm not saying that's the case here but do you research

    Re: Universal Geneve Uni-Compax

    Shouldn't case and hand colors match?
    I mean rose gold case and yellow gold hands?

    Hour markers appear to be rose gold, just tarnished
