Universal Genève Solid 18K Rose Gold Automatic Item #3146

There are some watches that make it really difficult to put an overall impression into words. This watch is definitely one of them.

Unusual and Stunning and really the two that come to our minds. A solid 18K Rose Gold case and a high grade bumper-wind automatic movement – all made by one of the Great names in the watch industry. It just doesn’t get any better! The whole package is just an exceptional timepiece and what style!  This one had to be top-of-line for Universal Genève at the time.

This 1950’s men’s wristwatch is housed in a hefty, solid 18K Rose Gold case that measures 30mm across at its narrowest point without the signed crown, and 41.7mm from lug tip to lug tip.

The dial is a signed Universal Genève in rose gold and features a set of perfectly matched rose gold, faceted hands and applied rose gold Universal Genève logo at 12. The case also features a raised rose gold bezel with a high polish and marked for hour intervals. Outstanding condition overall, even more so when considering it is 70 plus years old. 

Powering the watch is a signed Universal Genève Caliber 138SS Bumper Auto Winding Movement with 17 Jewels, Running great and keeping very good  time.

The watch comes fully and correctly serviced including a new crystal and mainspring.  The case was completely disassembled and ultrasonically cleaned only. We did not polish or refinish it in any way. The original condition is that good.  We paired it with a crocodile strap. The strap’s finish is a polished brown with reddish highlights. It goes great with the watch.
