    I own the same reference. The case is actually made by Henri Jeanneret.

    Not mine, but I’m in Milan, Italy, and there’s a little vintage watch shop under my apartment that has an affinity for UG (this being one of two cases full of UG):

    This seems to be the display of Bernardini - some of these watches are on their website.

    Correct

    I didn’t show their vintage Rolex bits, for a reason.

    But regardless of price, for me it was interesting to see such an emphasis of UG at such an establishment. There must have been 3 UG on display for every 1 watch of any other make.

    I visited with two friends, each of us during our visit wearing at least respectable watches. As we left, we all wondered together what sort of watches we needed to have been wearing to earn the distinction of being offered any of the liquor, cigars, etc., laying about.

    I was not prepared for how stunning this would look on a blue alligator leather strap.
