Universal Geneve Compax Oversize Pilot Chrono


This is one of the rarest Universal Geneve’s made, it’s a 1940’s Compax Pilot Chrono which measures a whopping 46mm. It’s a stunning and elegant watch on the wrist, large but very wearable due to the thin case. The original dial is the most beautiful I’ve seen on this model (due to the large case, the dials on these models are usually quite aged) and still has the original lume on the dial and hands. The steel case has ref 22430 and is in perfect condition and the 2nd model (another model with different lugs also exists). The Cal 292 Universal movement is very clean and working perfectly. Attached is a 24mm Horoween strap. Awesome piece and one of the best around!
