FS: A set of Vintage 1970s Ultra Thin Universal Geneve


After a long time of finding, buying, and collecting, I decided to let go the beloved set of these 3 pieces Universal Geneve ultra thin.

I believe they were all made in 1970s, with all the common characteristic as follow:

1. All steel case in 31mm wide not including the crown, 38mm lugs to lugs, and is about 5.5mm thin not counting the crystal , unpolished, however, case shape and design are varies and none of those are identical. The Linen dial is the most different one, with different finishing on the case, and it has a wider bezel & a lip surround the crystal.
2. Runs on cal 1-42, all has been serviced during the last 2 years and runs very well though accuracy is unknown.
3. All has original crown, dial & hands and everything else are original to the watch from my knowledge, maybe with the exception of non-original crystal.
4. All pictured are non-original. If my price is met, I will throw these in for free.

Additional information as follow:

1. The crystal on the blue dial is quite hazy, hence it looks off, the dial itself is minty and in striking blue color, sunburst finishing.
2. The white dial is a lacquer dial, it is super glossy and in perfect condition.
3. The linen grey dial is very beautiful, shines well under any lighting circumstance.
4. I'm selling this as a set, price is $1600 include of FedEx shipping worldwide.

Here are the photos of them:
