Description

Presenting an original and rare Universal Geneve military pilot’s chronograph for the Argentinian Air Force (Fuerza Aerea Argentina), a larger size 1942 steel chronograph in very good condition and functioning properly.

Reference: 22522 Serial: 814xxx

This chronograph likely comes from the first batch delivered to the FAA, which was founded in the years 1944-45.

It is a notably modified Compax chronograph where the minute counter wheel has been completely removed, and the chrono bridge has been accordingly modified with only one arm. Additionally, the seconds pinion is modified – shortened as it does not show on the dial.

Reference 22522 is also associated with the holy-grail Universal Film-Compax chronograph, albeit with some differences: aside from the dial, the caliber is the same but in full Compax configuration, the serial number is higher, and this watch usually has the US import codes stamped on the balance wheel bridge.

The original manufacture-grade Universal Geneve manual winding modified movement cal. 287 runs well and keeps excellent time. The chrono functions work fine too. It has been fully serviced and will be delivered with our guarantee.

The professionally restored silvered dial is in excellent condition, showing no oxidations and no time patina.

The original Universal Geneve signed steel case with a pressure-locked steel back is in very good, untouched condition. It measures 37.3 mm in diameter, not including the original crown. It shows only normal traces of use and appears to be unpolished.

The plexiglass is perfect, and the chronograph is fitted with a new leather wristband.

This watch is guaranteed as original and will be delivered with our 6-month guarantee and a certificate of originality.
