MEASUREMENTS: End of lug to end of lug height is 42mm, width is 34.5mm incl. DIAL - is its original dial, with a wonderful moon phase indicator. The dial is very nice overall, and as per close up photographs it does have some great natural age related patina as per photographs (it really adds authenticity and character to a classic vintage watch like this). CASE - is its original stainless steel case, and as per photographs shows typical to be expected age/use related wear/scratches/marks/scuffs but no major damage.
MOVEMENT - is manual wind Cal. 291 and has just had a full mechanical restoration by a specialist professional watchmaker, all functions are of course working exactly as they should and it is currently running accurately at +15s/day on flat with details as per the Timegrapher analysis photograph. CROWN - is nice, bulge style without marking (as expected for this watch). CRYSTAL - is nice, with no noticeable scratches/marks.
STRAP AND BUCKLE - a new handcrafted genuine crocodile skin strap in black has been fitted for the new owner to compliment this watch, along with a new stainless steel buckle (not original strap/buckle). CASE/BOX - as per the photographs, this watch will come in a new old stock genuine vintage Universal Geneve case (and cardboard cover box). This is a rare and valuable addition to this watch.
This is a wonderfully original example of the very desirable 1940s Universal Geneve triple-date moon phase watch that has had a full mechanical restoration and is ready for years of service, it comes with some unique features including its fantastic original dial, hands and indicators, a new handcrafted crocodile skin leather strap and a genuine vintage new old stock Universal Geneve case... Any questions, please just ask. UPDATE: Added a photograph of the Cal. 291 movement, and one of the inner case markings.
