    Overall I find these Universal Geneve watches from the 40s the best looking watches of the era... Does anybody else have UG from the 1940s that look like these?

    I got this one, serial number 1,2xx,xxx. Should be from around 1945-1946. I have another tricompax from the same era but is being serviced (been half a year sigh....)

    Not a UG but I believe this is from the late 40's early 50's.

    Gallet is very underrated, they used Excelsior Park movements in some of their chronographs

    Thanks 88cut... I totally agree with you. Yes, this one has an E. Park Cal 40. I really like mine... and lately my wife has taken a liking towards it ;)

    UG designers of had an eye for Arabic numeral fonts. Love the art deco styles.

    Thanks. Can you post a pic of your Avatar watch? I like the bezel on your UG chronograph.

    Beware: a couple of Compaxes and a 262 are just the gateway drugs....
