    The description is incomplete. The finish is usually mirror like (not mirror as not totally reflective/shiny). This watch someone just gave it a brush finish.

    I am not sure about market but having no serial no. In my opinion is an important matter for Nina and Clapton.

    Thanks for your thoughts. Saving up some pennies to try and snag a good example — doesn’t have to be perfect but the serial is an important aspect. Will pass on this — I just got outbid again anyways.

    Is there some debate on the reference number as well?

    I have a Clapton with the same issue of no reference on the back case. Obviously people polished them off back in the day . Nice looking example.

    Visible reference and serial numbers are becoming more and more valuable for all UG watches.
    I tend to avoid examples that don't have any.

    The replacement crown would be an issue for me. I suspect finding a replacement is very difficult.

    That said, the price was modest compared to a mint and all original version and probably quite fair for what was just a slightly tired example.

    Fair price for what it is IMHO.

    Thanks for the response. Still getting a bit of an idea of the UG market before I commit to a higher budget in buying.


    What about this Evil Clapton?

    Probably worth reaching out to him directly if interested ;)

    I notice he has a large number of UG boxes for sale too that are all open to offer :eek:

    It seems a good idea and he seems a nice guy. Sometimes he has great polerouters for sale. :)

    Maybe he will reply to the thread. And yes the boxes are top

    I got a chuckle when I saw a Universal Geneva Paul router for sale on ebay recently.
    Description went on to say: "Case:It has a lot of scratches and grubby. Dial:It has a lot of scratches and grubby."
    Don't usually see that kind of truth in advertising on ebay!
