Universal Genève Compax 18K Gold Chronograph, ref. #184.440 Item #2554 Price $4750
Outstanding, gently worn condition! This Universal Genève Compax chronograph, ref. #184.440 comes with its original inner and outer boxes, original paperwork with matching serial numbers, signed original crocodile strap and original Universal 18K Gold buckle. Truly amazing condition. The caseback still has remnants of its protective plastic covering. The case is HEAVY solid 18K Gold and measures 34.3mm without the crown or pushers, and 44.5mm lug to lug. The gold screw-down crown is Universal signed. The signed movement is a manual wind with 17 jewels, based on the Lemania 1873 (base Lemania 861). It's in perfect working condition and keeping great time.
The original owner wore the watch sparingly, and it really shows. We ultrasonically cleaned the case, but only did some hand cleaning on the caseback to preserve that great factory original finish. We removed the original strap and installed a brand new genuine crocodile strap (handmade in the USA) along with the original buckle.
The watch comes with everything pictured, just as when new.
