    I disagree. See below.

    Sorry for being late to the party. I was abroad.
    Is this a ref 124103 (number on caseback)?
    As said above, I don't think the watch is good because the printing on the dial looks quite suspicious:
    - UNI-Compax is not centered.
    - Rounded 3s in the subdials
    - Particularly the right dial seems to be a bit off centered.
    - The font is too thick imho.

    By the way, your link shows a different watch than your pics.

    Morning Larry. Would you recommend on buying this watch? Is it a solid UG tri-compax?

    I've been eyeing this one for a while, but can't help but feel that there's something off.

    [​IMG]

    The ink on the subdials looks too "thick" and the shape of the A in both Universal and Compax worries me.
    Also, according to Sala for this reference (12552), the tachymetre scale shouldn't be blue.

    I would be inclined to think that this is a redial, but I'm terrible at identifying them if not obvious.

    Guys, I think I’m buying the watch I posted above. Do you guys think it’s a good idea? I mean, if the watch is legit and original, would this turn out to be an awesome deal?

    depends on what you mean by awesome deal I guess. it's a plated case, tired dial, some issues with the hands, etc etc

    if you love it and it's really cheap..........?

    So yea you can spend a grand or two on this watch. Then you can hang out here, learn more and have your buyers remorse grow and grow. I counsel patience ...

    Oversized HJ case, two tone dial, big 12, and radial numbers ?! It sets my heart a flutter just looking at a pic...

    Same here. Uncommon to see the larger sized gold Jeanneret case on a Uni-Compax looking this nice (before you even get into that amazing dial). Big money, though.
