Universal Genève

, Case No. 1066804, Ref. 22258, Cal. 481, 35 mm, circa 1944

A vintage Geneva wristwatch with chronograph, full calendar and moon phase - early "Tri-Compax"

Case: steel, push back. Dial: silvered.

When the Tri-Compax appeared on the market in 1944, the sales figures of the Universal watch manufactory increased considerably. The Tri-Compax with full calendar, moon phase and chronograph was considered a horological masterpiece and Universal became a synonym for quality, taste and reliability. The watch came in several case variants – steel and red or yellow gold, with case sizes ranging from 33 mm to a large 38 mm.
This Tri-Compax model in a steel case features square chronograph pushers and three buttons on the left for setting the day of the week, the month and the moon phase, which is displayed together with the date in a small window at 12 o’clock. Below are two windows for day and month, both in English. The black tachymeter scale around the outer rim of the dial completes this magnificent wrist chronograph.
Case: very good, slightly worn
Dial: very good, slightly scratched, slightly oxydized
Movm.: very good, capable of running, cleaning recommended
