VINTAGE UNIVERSAL GENEVE COMPAX EXOTIC REF 22706-1 1962

DSCN0336 DSCN0335 DSCN0334 DSCN0333

Very RARE Universal Geneve Compax Exotic reference 22706-1 in mint condition. Probably the only one in the world.

This is a rare transitional Compax which retains its 22706-1 reference and a 2,2 mil serial dating it around 1962 and become the Nina Rindt and other 60s compax models equiped with the later caliber 85 movement (lower quality).

Although similar in general apparence, it is very different. Dauphine hands and stick register hands with caliber 130 movement (based on the famous valjoux 72 but modified by UG and renamed 72-6) which is almost identical to the Valjoux 72-7 used on the rolex daytona.

Beautiful unrivaled looks and nice solid feel. Original crown and pushers. Unpolished example retains all of its original lines. Comes with original panda dial (two dials). A pleasure to wear and a real stunner.
