In 1936 Universal presented the first Uni-Compax model characterized by a two-button movement that made it possible to stop and resume the measurement of an intermediate time, as well as the use of a 45-minute register. The first examples featured cases with snap-on cases and rectangular buttons, while a decade later models with waterproof cases and round buttons were produced. The Uni-Compax here offered is a quintessential chronograph from Universal Genève: with its balanced dial and well-proportioned case, this watch has maintained its timelessness flawlessly. With a perfect balance of elegance and sporty look, this stainless steel case has been preserved in nice conditions. The most prestigious feature of this watch is without any doubt the black dial with two counters and large luminous Arabic numbers that spread beauty at every glance.
