    Might have to keep a close eye on #1, that does look rather nice

    I'm pretty sure that is a redial.

    I have some reservations about this Polerouter SUb - a bit too long and intricate to go into here, but I'd love to hear what other people think. One of these just sold for $3660, which is WAY too much in my opinion.

    This looks correct to me. I'd love to know whether that crown is proper. Any opinions?

    I like this one, although not in the best shape.

    $2256 - I'd say someone got a very nice deal. The dial detracts, to be sure, but the larger diameter is a plus, and the movement looks pretty darned clean.

    Must be Small Universal Week...

    32mm 14k gold Compax looks completely correct, reasonable condition although the case has had a polish or three. I hope he hasn't got the reserve too high, as a 32mm watch is not going to sell for anything close to 35mm or larger.

    A 32.5mm Girard Perregaux two dialer. GP was one of the many manufactures that used UG as its chronograph supplier, including Eberhard, Jaeger LeCoultre, Vacheron & Constantin, and Zenith. In GP's case, they received completely assembled pieces from UG with GP branding, and marketed them under their name. On this one (if it were a UG, it would have been a Uni-Compax), the case is in excellent shape, dial has seen better days but is acceptable (to me), and hands have been relumed.

    I'm not totally happy with the font of "Universal Geneve" but it could be original, and perhaps I'm picking a nit. I do note that the hands a rose gold but the hour fleches and the 12 appear to be yellow gold, so I'm calling replacement hands. I also find the ask to be a little ambitious - perhaps by about $400-500.

    Apparently International Dial has many of the original dies for UG. At one time, they did the work for UG and they companies were right across the street from each other in NY.
