Vintage "Universal Geneve", Rare WW2 watch

Dispatches from Poland

Rare original vintage "Universal Geneve" watch, a classic embodiment of understated elegance. Despite its relatively modest case diameter of 32 mm without the crown, by today's standards, it conveys a timeless charm. Watches of the World War II era, like this one, were often small but are known for their comfortable fit and harmonious appearance on wrists of any gender.

The watch hails from the 1940s, a period when Universal Geneve affirmed its reputation for producing premium-level movements, often outclassing other watch manufacturers. The black dial is marked by luminous hour numbers and hands, designed for clarity and ease of reading. The subsidiary seconds dial at 6 o'clock adds a touch of sophistication to its functional layout.

Accompanying the watch is a handmade leather strap, skillfully crafted to complement the piece's vintage aura. The strap accentuates the watch's authentic appeal, making it an exquisite choice for collectors and those with an appreciation for heritage Swiss timepieces. The mechanical movement inside this watch is a testament to the enduring craftsmanship of Universal Geneve, making it much more than just a time-telling instrument, but a wearable piece of horological history from Switzerland.

  • Year: 1940s
