Universal Genève 742603/07 Circa 1970 (Thermal Blue Hands)
Presenting the exquisite Universal Genève 742603/07, a distinguished timepiece that conceals its sophistication within a seemingly familiar 1970s stainless steel case, reminiscent of its era yet uniquely set apart upon closer examination.
Upon your first encounter, the absence of the iconic "U" logo on the watch dial is immediately apparent. This omission, deliberate and calculated, grants the watch a sense of uncluttered elegance and a timeless sophistication that transcends trends.
What truly sets this timepiece apart is the mesmerizing effect of the thermally blued hands that grace its face. These hands, like delicate strokes of artistry, not only enhance legibility but also infuse the watch with depth and character, turning every glance at the dial into a moment of admiration.
Powering this horological gem is the venerable Universal Genève hand-winding calibre 42, a movement that heralds the transition era of the mobile stud carrier, featuring the Girocap combined setting before the company embraced the Universal combined setting with oil aperture.
The watch case, remarkably preserved, gleams in mint condition, bearing no traces of its age. The watch dial, a canvas of time, exhibits minimal to negligible signs of aging, a testament to its enduring beauty. Light, imperceptible aging graces the hands, adding to their vintage allure. The crystal, a guardian of the dial's elegance, remains pristine and unmarred.
This exceptional timepiece finds its perfect match in a brand new, handcrafted top-grained calf leather strap, a testament to the union of comfort and style.
Preserving privacy and exclusivity, the serial number discreetly remains hidden within the accompanying photo.
