    Universal Geneve Compax

    Hi guys,

    Just posting some pictures of my Universal Geneve Compax chronograph in enversteel. It houses a cal. 287 manual wind movement. Circa 1952/3. I'm also very pleased with the stunning vintagesque 'Bulang and Sons' strap that it's on.

    Any other Universal Geneve fans out there?

    Very nice, I love these watches. How does it run? One fear that always prevents me from getting a vintage 40s or 50s chrono is that nagging fear about whether they function well and stuff. But yours looks to be in a good condition, congrats.

    It's in excellent condition, the chronograph function has been a bit 'meh' but nothing that a decent service can't fix!

    Just wondering, and I don't know of this is allowed, but what would an average price point for a 50's Compax such as this be?

    I actually have a 1990s lower end version, housing a Valjoux 7750. Really nice watch.

    How did it get so late so soon?

    Very nice picture of the movement.

    Maybe you can answer my question? What would a fair price be for this model?

    It's against forum rules to attempt a valuation, unfortunately. There's no way to accurately gauge the condition through a few pictures. The best way to determine a value is to try to find others like it for sale.

    Those watches are not commonly found and condition plays a lot in the price. My suggestion is to surf closed Ebay sales for a sense of value.
