This Compax reference 22705-1 is one of the most desirable, clean and relevant vintage chronographs by Universal Genève due to its rarity.
The 36mm case wears very well with the elegant signature twisted lug design characteristic of the era.
As wearble as it would of been in the 60s. This compax has a subtle light blue tachymetre scale on the outer stepped ring. The inner silver is reflective and subtle with applied pumpkin luminous in stunning preservation.
The case is lightly polished but retains the serial and reference on its caseback.
The plexi has the original UG logo in its centre. The pushers and crown are original.
This is a very special vintage chronograph that does not come around in this condition often.
Included is a period correct UG Gay Freres stainless steel bracelet.
