Rare Vintage "Universal Geneve" WW2 watch, Swiss Military watch

$600.00 $900.00
Dispatches from Poland

Universal Geneve also made military watches, and one of these models were sold to the Royal Dutch Army. These watches were issued to the Dutch soldiers during the late 1930s, just before World War II started for The Netherlands (on the 10th of May 1940). The dial of the Universal Geneve features a ‘W’ symbol, which was the initial of Queen Wilhelmina of The Netherlands. Queen Wilhelmina ruled The Netherlands from 1890 till 1948. 

The watch is small enough considering today's standards - a case diameter is 30 mm without a crown. 

All WW2 military watches are usually small in size, but they are very comfortable and look harmonious on both the men’s and women’s hands. 

The watch is made in the best traditions of Universal, the premium level movement proves their superiority over many other watch companies. 

Pay attention to the handmade leather strap, it perfectly complements this watch!
