Universal Genève 842639 Circa 1970
Available for acquisition is the Universal Genève 842639, a testament to the refined craftsmanship and meticulous detailing synonymous with Universal Genève timepieces.
This extraordinary model boasts a dial resembling marble, achieved through the artistry of lacquer, ensuring each piece possesses its own unique and captivating pattern.
Within the heart of the Universal Genève 842639 resides the slender and sophisticated hand-wound calibre 1-42, standing at a mere 2.45mm in height. Notably, this movement represents one of the early instances where Universal Genève embraced the Universal combined settings, departing from the Girocap, showcasing the brand's commitment to innovation and horological excellence.
Turning our attention to the watch case, its excellent condition is evident, adorned with minor hairline scratches that gracefully accompany regular wear. A subtle lacquer crack, characteristic of its age, adds to the distinctive charm of the dial. Light aging on the hands further contributes to the watch's character, while the crystal remains unblemished, free from any scratches.
Completing this ensemble is a brand-new handmade Alran Sully leather strap, adding a touch of bespoke craftsmanship to an already exceptional timepiece.
Maintaining its air of exclusivity, the serial number has been discreetly concealed in the provided photos.
