Universal Genève Uni-Compax 124103

In 1936 Universal Genève launched the Uni-Compax: a chronograph wristwatch. 

The Uni-Compax is actually one of Universal’s most important watches ever made because it’s such a good example of what the brand did so well; creating complicated wristwatches with high-quality, in-house movements and beautiful but simple designs. The case of this 1950’s reference 124103 is made from 18k rose gold, measures 34.5 mm and houses the calibre 287. A very cool and distinctive feature are the squared pushers. The dial has two registers: one that tracks the seconds and a 45-minute register. The nice thing about this dial is that it has not been refinished, which is more than often the case for the Tri- and Uni-Compax as it wasn’t water resistant.
