The watch here offered represents a later version of the “Aero-Compax” model produced by Universal where the secondary time zone is indicated by the rotating bezel rather than a subsidiary dial. The case is a perfect example of excellent preservation given its still sharp edges and its push buttons of the chronograph almost untouched. The smoked white with painted Arabic numerals and baton index dial comes in perfect conditions, and is completed with the outer 1/5 seconds scale with 5-minute/seconds and subsidiary dials for seconds, hour and minute.
