    Hi guys!
    Up for grabs this basically perfect example of one of the latest - if not the last - affordable Italian issued watches. This specific watch is a Universal Geneve "FS" (standing for "Ferrovie dello Stato", Italian railway company) first execution.
    These are watches that nowadays are more difficult to find in good conditions. Enamel dials are quite fragile and it's hard to find them with no marks or big signs of use.
    This example has one of the brightest dials I see so far. It's basically flawless, in - I'd say - superb conditions. Hands are original.
    Stainless steel case manteins its original shape, caseback is clean and its engraving is very deep. Crown is original.
    Plexy is original too! There are just a couple of small scratches on it, nothing serious. I decided to keep it as is.
    Movement is running well but not freshly serviced.

    Attatched with it I'll add a brand new italian leather strap from the brand "SMU", a small brand of straps that I'm building with a friend of mine (you can see more here).

    Overall a watch in great shape, a must have item, considering price and history.

    For this watch price is 950€ plus shipment. Me and watch are located in Italy. I have dozens of feedbacks worldwide, you can buy with total confidence.

    Thank you OF, thank you guys.

    If I was not thinning the herd right now, I’d be all over this. Working Watches like this enamel beauty are rare in this condition.
