    A friend of mine showed me today an old brochure from the UG Dealer CHRIST around 68/69 with images and pricelist
    Have a nice sunday remembering 70-ies, Cheers Gerald

    Interesting to see that they changed old references /pg. 16/17, lets say from 227.06/1 into 885.103/01

    What is on the other pages, Gerald? Anything you can share with us? Believe me, we are hungry for anything - UG catalogs of the era are few and far between

    I will get the whole brochure for copying within this week, these are DM prices, the brochure can be from 65, but there is no proof as i cant find a production date. The watches are mainly 3 -hand watches - lot of gold but never mind.
    For me the most interesting is to see the Big Eye with thin subdial hands as i had one of these with one thick and one thin subdial hand.
    Already gone

    Three hand watches are under documented so that would be awesome!

    That is such a cool ad! Oh, to have a time machine indeed.

    Including an ad that my friend sourced for me:
