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.
