Launched in 1944, the legendary “Tri-Compax” is certainly one of Universal’s most famous models. Offering the most appreciated complications that could be found on a wristwatch, it is one of the most complex watches available at the beginning of the ’40s. The lot here offered strikes from the first sight with its pink-solid gold case in perfect conditions, inset calendar adjusters to the case, push buttons and snap-on case back fully in pink and gold as well. The proportioned and attractive dial has a glamorous silver color with applied pink baton indexes that match the case, subsidiary guilloché dials, outer minutes graduation, apertures for the days of the week, the months and the moon phases. A true pearl for any collector.
