1960's Universal Geneve Vintage Mens Midsize Unisex Watch - Stainless Steel & Diamonds

Universal Geneve

Item No. 6919

Today's offering showcases this beautiful Certified Pre-Owned vintage midsize Universal Geneve watch. Both a striking fashion statement and a precision wristwatch, it features a stainless steel case, royal blue dial, and fine Universal Geneve caliber 1400 mechanism.

As a mens midsize, it is also well-suited for a woman who wants a fuller size watch.

It has just finished a true expertly done restoratin and presents in gorgeous condition. It is fully Universal Geneve down to the signed winding crown.

The diamonds have been previously aftermarket set by a jeweler who modified the lugs to accommodate them. They range in color from white to light yellow.

Its case presents as just short of mint. Its dial has been meticulously refinished - the printing could pass as Universal Geneve factory done to the naked eye. And its fine hand-wound movement is very clean and running true.

A Master Watchmaker has just overhauled the movement, which is near pristine. It continues to keep very accurate time.

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

Included with the purchase is a one-year warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate attesting to its performance.
