Universal Geneve Chrono for HERMES


Ultra rare Universal Geneve Compax made for Hermes. As some of you might know, Universal made quite a few different models specifically for Hermes and one can find various advertisements on the net. But, this example is one of the rarest as it boasts an oversize 37,5mm steel waterproof screwback case and stunning black dial with gilt printing (all original off course). reference is 224105 which was made in 1946. Movement is Universal’s Cal 285 and even has a dust-cap to protect the movement (rarely seen on UG’s). Attached is a nice black lizard strap. This must be one of the rarest Universal Geneve’s ever made.
