Time to thin the herd. All sales are from my own private collection. Pics are part of the description/condition. Please ask if you need more info or hi-res pics.

People that are looking at this probably know what it is about. One of the still affordable Universal Geneve "1950" chronographs. A true gem. This one is in pristine condition and comes full set.

  • Universal Genève Reference 884.495 nicknamed " 1950 chrono" and "baby nina" or "Ninja Rindt jr."
  • ~1990
  • Stainless steel case is approximately 37mm (excluding crown)
  • Bakelite blue tachymeter bezel
  • Blue Panda dial (silver and metallic blue), thermally blued seconds hand
  • Lemania Calibre 1873 Manually-Wound Chronograph Movement (exact same movement as in the Omega Speedmaster Pro)
  • 19mm lug width
  • Aftermarket oyster style bracelet included (see pics) to complete the vintage daytona looks; used condition
  • Official UG buckle for leather straps included
  • Box, inner + outer + signed warranty card + pouch + UG original hang tags
  • Extra: silver running seconds hands from another UG compax chronograph (for the person that prefers the silver hand to the stock blue)

Condition: overall in mint condition and really collectible.
Stainless steel case is in excellent, near mint condition (never been polished or refinished) with clean and sharp lugs and only minor signs of strap changes on the inside. Dial is similarly excellent, untouched condition. Universal Genève signed crown. Case back is in excellent condition. Acrylic crystal has minor scratches that purposely have not been buffed out yet (but can very easily be done with polywatch)

Awesome read and background on this very UG model here
