The 1950’s Universal Genève Triple Calendar Moon-Phase is one of Universal Genève’s most beautiful timepieces. The movement inside the case is powered by a manual wind caliber 291, which is a highly accurate and reliable caliber. The moon-phase feature on the watch gives this piece an elegant look. Moon-phase indicators display the different phases of the moon, which is rather fascinating. It comes to show the craftsmanship and genius of the people who designed and assembled this piece over 60 years ago. The Universal Genève Moon-Phase is perfect for formal occasions. It is not a flashy watch but it will catch the attention of people, especially those who appreciate fine Swiss engineering.
About the Brand
Numa Emile Descombes and Ulysse Georges Perret founded Universal Geneve in 1894. Their aim was to create complicated timepieces with movements manufactured in-house, something rather rare for the time. In 1917 Universal Geneve introduced the world's first wrist worn chronograph, which led to Universal's chronograph era. Throughout the 30's and 50's Universal manufactured some of the most iconic timepieces in the world. The introduction of the Compax, Aero-Compax, Tri-Compax, Polerouter and Microtor revolutionized the Swiss watch industry, garnering admirers in Patek Philippe, Rolex and Audemars Piguet.
