WHY IS THIS WATCH IMPORTANT
Universal Genève had seen a rise in the last few years, especially on early chronographs, but there's a lot more than Chronos out there and this particular piece is one of those ones that clearly stands out from the crowd.
This ¨Tank style¨ watch features black Roman numerals around a rail-track minute circle, black Breguet hands, and a case to die for, lots of time and care were obviously put into this design.
We never saw another one in this condition, if you want a Tank-watch but want something out of the ordinary this is your call.
This watch is in MINT condition, unpolished, and almost in New-Old-Stock condition, there are small micro-scratches almost unperceivable to the naked eye.
The original box, Lizard strap, and solid gold signed buckle are included.
The watch has just been serviced and keeps good time in running condition.
