1942 Universal Geneve Aero-Compax ref. 22477

This rare Universal Geneve Aero-Compax is a true stunner. Crisp case, glossy creamy dial, blue hands, generous size for the era (37mm), it can be the cornerstone of any vintage chronograph collection.

This model was originally designed for pilots, the top register being used to set the departure time of a flight. A grail for many, for good reason.
