FS: Vintage Universal Geneve “tank” 14k Gold

Gotta trim the herd for a new piece coming in. So up for grabs is this beautiful, heavy 14k gold Universal Geneve “tank” style watch.

Here’s a link to the photo album:

Case: solid 14K “Geneva” made 28.5mm by 28.5mm yellow gold case in unpolished and great condition. The case has a stepped styling to it, and it really reminds me of the old Cartier Santos Dumont. A super cool case. The caseback has a cool engraving, and the owner (after some searching) owner a shoe store for a long time. Pretty neat. The caseback has a couple scratches from previous opening attempts, but they aren’t deep scratches. Overall the case is awesome.

Dial: super cool patinated dial co signed “Shreve & Co”. The dial is a pie pan like dial, which is why only the center has patina. The dial is 100% original and untouched.

Movement: I’m not sure if the caliber, but it winds like butter and keeps excellent time.

The watch will come with an original yellow gold plated UG buckle. The strap it’s currently on is a brand new hodinkee strap, which can be included at the buyers request.

My asking price for this beauty is $1000. It’s a super rare model and I cant Say I’ve seen another.

I can be reached at (606) 499-1369, which is also my WhatsApp number. I can Also be reached at

Thanks CT for the space.
