Among Universal Genève creations, the family of Tricompax, Bicompax and Compax certainly stands out. The present lot is a magnificent representative of the latter. One of the main rarities of this watch is represented by the black dial and its fascinating radium Arabic numbers and hands both very aged well with a very fresh tachometer scale with the base. The case is a perfect example of excellent preservation given its sharp edges and its square buttons of the chronograph almost untouched.
