  • Catalogue Essay

    The present pink gold triple calendar wristwatch is a fine example from Universal Genève. At one time the Henri Stern Watch Agency in New York distributed the brand and one sees similarities in both. The 34 mm diameter case has elegant down turned lugs with a dial symmetry that is well thought out and easy to read.

  • Artist Biography


    Swiss • 1894

    Universal Genève was founded in Le Locle, Switzerland in 1894 and was originally known as "Universal Watch." Since its inception, Universal Genève has produced watches with unusually high quality for their price point. Universal was among the first brands to introduce a chronograph wristwatch.

    Today, the firm's vintage models are highly sought-after and desired for their oversized cases and interesting dial designs. Key models include a variety of "Compax" models such as the "Nina Rindt" or "Evil Nina," the Uni-Compax, the Space-Compax, the Aero-Compax and the Film-Compax.
