Sharp and elegant, the present lot is an Universal Geneve reference 107 161 fully realized in 18k solid pink gold. The solid case is composed of two pieces with large, heavy, down-turned lugs, canted bezel and snap-on case back. Very nicely preserved in all its comportment, this very watch is also provided with a gold bracelet with thin texture. This amazing watch is powered by a high grade, 17 Jewel, Swiss made, Universal Geneve Caliber 263 manual wind movement signed Universal Geneve and Swiss. The most important characteristic of this Universal is f course the marvelous enamel cloisonné dial depicting the South America and applied Roman and dot numerals. This decoration is absolutely remarkable for its beauty, quality and complexity since have been used various colors such as red, green, yellow and white but also because there are other details like a boat or fish that further enhance the whole dial. This type of enamel dial is extremely fragile that’s why find one in perfect conditions like the present one is extremely difficult.
