This Universal Geneve Nina Rindt Compax is an impressive example of one of the hottest wrist watches on the planet right now.
This stunning chronograph wrist watch features a highly stylized steel case that utilizes bombe sculpted lugs, similar to the design of the iconic Omega Speedmaster Moon Watch.
The black screened tachymetric bezel is also a feature shared with the Omega Speedmaster Moon Watch.
The minty white dial on this watch uses painted on hour markers dotted with luminous material as well as a painted on Universal Geneve logo. The hands are the original tapered design, which are the original black finish. You can also see the delicate luminous tripe at the tip of the sweep second chronograph hand.
The black chronograph registers have aged with an all natural patina to a very light chocolate tropical shade. This pattern has been called a panda dial pattern.
The Steel case has never been polished. There are light swirl marks about the exterior with one noticeable area with a scratch at the very top of the lower left lug,under the bezel. This is not noticeable when being worn but is visible in the photographs attached.
Powering this stunning watch is an equally desirable movement, the legendary Valjoux 72 column wheel, manual wind chronograph movement. Please examine the photos of this movement, there is no sign of any aging nor any corrosion in sight. The watch was just serviced by my watchmaker and is functioning flawlessly.
The watch carries a case reference of 885103/02 along with a serial number in the 2.5 million range, lightly engraved outside of the case back.
I have photographed the watch on a brown leather strap but can supply on a black model if a buyer prefers.
Most people looking at this watch will know the reference of its nickname, the Nina Rindt, but here is a listing for one that sold and an article from the blog Hodinkee describing the Nina Rindt reference both featuring almost the identical model.
