Here we have beautiful Universal Genève Ref. 212301, a wonderful example of a 50s and timeless watch design. This beautiful vintage watch comes crisp-cased with sharp edges and unpolished.

The simple UG-logo alongside the indexes and beautiful hands are harmonious and well balanced. The crown is original with the appropriate UG logo. This WRISTCLASSIC is powered by a  cal 1200 handwind movement running strong and keeping time well. The watch comes with a handcrafted leather strap in unworn condition. This UG is a rare timepiece in untouched condition you will not find again. It’s a true WRISTCLASSIC with perfect proportions, timeless styling and a famous history. 


In 1894 in Le Locle Numa-Emile Descombes and Ulysse Georges Perret founded a watchshop and watch manufacture. In the early 20th century UG specialized in making chronographs. In the 1930s UG produced a wide range of different chronos, as for example the Compur- or Compax-series. Amongst other things UG developed in the 1950s the so called Microrotor-movement, which featured the watch called Polerouter in the 1950s and 1960s. The Polerouter and the Microrotor-movement are beside the lots of complicated Chronographs the most famous products by UG. In 1989 Universal Genève was bought by the group called Stelux.
