This forum is for BUYING, SELLING and TRADING only--not for discussing watches. Please limit postings to specific ads for buying, selling or trading watches, parts or accessories that that match at least one of the following categories:

Please see our ChronoTrader Policies and Terms of Use. Learn more about How To Include Photos In Your Postings.

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...]

FS: Universal Geneve Tri-Compax ref. 881101/01 Recently Serviced

Offered for sale is a beautiful example of the iconic Universal Geneve Tri-Compax ref. 881101/01 triple date moonphase chronograph in great condition. This highly collectible vintage reference is becoming increasingly difficult to find, especially in this exemplary condition. The watch was recently serviced and currently runs well. The original signed UG logo crystal (cracked) was replaced and comes included with the watch.


Dial: The original panda dial is in good condition with no major blemishes. The dial and lume plots are 100% untouched.

Case: Stainless steel case is thick and sharp with normal wear from use. Reference and serial numbers are visible on the caseback.

Strap: The watch comes fitted with a brand new hand-stitched leather strap and Universal stainless steel buckle.

Additional: No additional accessories are included.

Asking $16,850 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.

Feel free to send me an email at or call/text with any questions +1(626) 404-8842. International buyers can message me on What’s App.
