Universal Geneve Compax 1944

This Compax comes from the heyday of Universal Geneve, the 1940s. It is an ode to what makes an awesome chronograph, with both functionality and legibility. This model was first introduced in 1935 and was produced in multiple case and dial configurations. This example is fitted in a perfectly sized, well-preserved 35 mm case.

The classical dial layout is neatly presented with three registers displaying all you need. The dial has some aging throughout, and it looks way better in person because all of our photography is made with macro lenses.
