Description

An exceptional and rare 1956 Universal Geneve Compax, solid gold chronograph, presented in very good condition and functioning smoothly.

Serial Number: 1.5 million 

Reference: 52215

Housed within is the manual winding Universal Geneve caliber 281, a manufacture-grade movement known for its quality. The chronograph functions activate and halt as expected. Having undergone a comprehensive service—timed, oiled, and regulated—the watch comes with our 6-month guarantee.

Its original 14kt solid gold waterproof style case with screw-in back and round pushers, remains in a very good condition, showing minimal signs of wear. It measures 33.5mm in diameter, excluding the original crown.

A notable caseback engraving commemorates William E. John’s victory at the 43rd NYAC (New York Athletic Club) 1956 Block Island regatta, adding unique historical value.

The silvered dial, displaying a consistent time patina and a few very slight oxidations, is well-preserved overall.

Available upon request are detailed photographs.

Complemented by a vintage-style wristband and flawless plexiglass, this chronograph is authenticated and comes with our 6-month warranty and a certificate of originality.
