Pictures do not do this watch justice, will soon re-shot the pictures, inspect the watch again and probably raise the price. Those are quick artificial light pictures and the watch looks dirty. I have just re-shot the Universal C.O.S.C. and was amazed how beautiful the watch now looks on these pictures. I will most like raise the price of the Dual Time also, since the condition is actually much better then the picures suggest.
Stunning dial, looks like Enamel, please see my Breguet 1211E (sold). The quality of this dial is stunning. The Grand Seiko (see private collection) is more expensive, but can not compete with the quality of this dial. Hands, indices, and especially the printing are simply beautiful! What a pity that nobody really knows what has happened to Universal. A great company with a great history. Today not even the website is working properly. Well, collectors will not be sad ...
Watch still contains original shop sticker and factory plastic sticker on back
Watch comes with original outer Universal box and inner blue leather box and international warranty stamped January 20th 2004 from authorized dealer
The dial of the watch is simply fantastic. Looks like Enamel, immaculate printing, beautifully polished hands, logo and indices. Change of timezone? No problem, just push the button at 8 o'clock and the 2nd timezone hand will move forward. This is about the only difference to the Patek Philippe Calatrava Traveler, where there is a second button that moves the 2nd timezone hand backward. The Patek Philippe has a small 24 hour hand at the position of the day/night indicator - and to be honest, the optical day/night indicator is easier to read. At a glance you can see it is AM (golden color) or PM (dark navy blue color). In the picture above you see the transition of 6 AM from night to day.
For a 1/10th of the cost of a Patek Calatrava Traveler, this Universal offers a lot!
