1947 Universal Geneve Vintage Mens Full Size Dress Watch - 18K Gold

Universal Geneve

Item No. VR 5

Today's offering showcases this beautiful vintage mens Universal Geneve dress watch. Both a discerning fashion statement and a precision wristwatch, it features a classic and distinctive 18K gold case, silver dial, and fine Universal Geneve handwound mechanism.

Its measures 34mm in diameter and its wide flat bezel and lugs give it even a slightly larger presence on the wrist.

Its case is in excellent condition and retains strong markings on the back. The dial has been been restored and presents in person nicer than it does in the photos - our photos couldn't fully capture the beauty of the watch.

Its finely finished movement is clean and keeping time.

For the finishing touch it has been equipped with a brand new genuine Teju lizard strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.

Included with the purchase is a 90-day warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
