Rules: Postings must be an ad announcing an intent to sell, buy or trade. Full item description and photo(s) must be posted within the message here, not as links to other websites. Links to online auctions and other sites: Links to online auctions, dealer sites or other listings of items are permitted, but you should be careful to ensure that such listings will comply with our other ChronoTrader Policies. In addition, we request that sellers linking to online auctions or listings offer some benefit or accomodation to ChronoTrader readers (for example, some discount or an undertaking to end an auction early, to keep a watch "in the family"). Photos must be of the actual item for sale in its present condition. No counterfeit or replica products. No post for the same item may be repeated within 7 days, except to lower the asking price. Commercial dealers are limited to three unique posts per day. [More...]
Offered for sale is a stunning example of the iconic Universal Geneve Compax ‘Nina Rindt’ ref. 885103/02 chronograph in excellent condition. This particular watch is an early example with an applied logo and thin subdial hands. This highly collectible vintage reference is becoming increasingly difficult to find, especially in this exemplary condition.
Dial: The original applied logo panda dial is in excellent condition with a gorgeous cream patina and original matching hands. The dial and lume plots are 100% untouched. Any sorts of blemishes that may appear in the photos are tiny scratches or lint on the crystal and not on the actual dial.
Case: Stainless steel case is very thick and sharp, possibly never polished. Reference and serial numbers are clearly visible on the caseback. Bezel is in excellent condition with no major blemishes. Original crystal is signed with the UG logo.
Strap: The watch comes fitted with a brand new hand-stitched leather strap and Universal stainless steel buckle.
Additional: The watch currently runs well but service history is unknown.
Asking $36,950 by wire (or check deposited to my bank account) shipped and insured within the US or face to face in the Los Angeles area. International shipping available at an additional cost.
Returns only accepted within 3 days of receipt if item is not as described and is returned in the same exact condition as it was originally sold. Refunds will be considered upon a full inspection and will amount to the purchase price minus shipping and handling costs. Buyer is responsible for the return postage, insurance, and safe delivery of the watch back to me. Due to the complexity of shipping to the US from abroad, all international sales are final.
Worldwide references can be provided upon request. I am an independent watch collector and I am not affiliated with any brand in any way.
