The watch here offered represents a version of the “Tri-Compax” model produced by Universal that offers the most appreciated complications that could be found on a wristwatch, one of the most complex watches available at those years. The lot offered here with its “tonneau”-shaped stainless steel case is preserved in great conditions as well as the faceted lugs, rounded bezel and screw case back that complete the three-body case. The dial shows lots of features with its silvered background with applied steel indexes and luminous dots, outer minutes/seconds divisions, subsidiary guilloché dials for the seconds, 30-minute and 12-hour registers, aperture for the day of the week and the month, the days of the month and the moon phases. All these functions are activated by two pushers and 3 inserts on the case that are powered by a 281 caliber with Breguet balance spring.
