    i recently bought this uni-compay retailed by Freccero on fleabay but am unsure about the chrono seconds hand. Has FullSizeRender.jpg anyone ever seen one like this or do you think it was replaced?


    Model 124103
    Serial 1,600,xxx


    Many Thanks,

    Pacha

    124103 should be 1952, there is a documented 1954 Freccero Compax that shows nearly the same chrono hand, not exactly but very close. It is page 280 of the Sala book. Hope that helps...

    Unless it is a Patek, it is not really a Calatrava.

    This term essentially has no meaning. It exists as an attempt to increase the desirability (i.e. value) of lesser watches by recklessly associating them with the Patek Philippe Calatrava.

    Please pardon the double posting, but I originally intended to post my new arrival in this thread instead of the other, since this one seems to be more active and more recent. Mods, feel free to delete the other posting if you wish.

    Just in, my first UG Chrono, A Uni – Compax with a cal.281:

    Here it is, sharing some fruit with my only other UG:
