    Interestingly just ran the serial number on this one. It appears to be the same watch which was at Bernardini in May 2016. At that time it was a Uni-compax and the ask was EUR12000.

    Now it appears with a Compur dial, the wrong subdial hands, but a correct second sweep hand and an ask of USD16500

    Another mix and match UG

    Pushers are not the same either.

    An ever so slight variation on the caps.

    That may well be the key question in Universal chronograph collecting. We have seen that these are very freely franked - a browse through the latest Bernardini sale shows this. And I have seen people on this forum (sometimes the same people) vary from struct purists to tolerant in the extreme. The factory produced a wide number of variations and absent a photo in the archives reproduced in Sala, it is difficult to prove an authentic factory config.

    Well said. This is the very definition of “putting it into a nutshell”

    Spotted this Uni-Compax online today - thoughts, anyone? It is claimed that the dial is "expertly restored" - is that merchant-speak for a "redial"?
