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.
