Universal Geneve Compur 18K 1940

This Universal Geneve Compur is a fantastic example of what the manufacturer did so well in the 1940s. The compact 18k yellow gold case with square pushers houses the desirable caliber 285 movement. 

It is one of the most elegant vintage chronographs especially with this rare slightly two tone silver dial. It's well-balanced, understated and functional.
