FS: Universal Geneve Compax 30

Hi All,
Up for sale a Universal Genève Compax 30
Original Universal Genève Movement 386.
Chromed case with 35 mm diameter without crown
18 mm distance between lugs.
Watch will come with a black strap, with Stainless Steel buckle.
Watch is in good overall condition, considering it´s age, movement works flawlessly, is running strong and keeping accurate time, having been serviced and timed to precision by “Museu do Relógio” (Watch Museum in Portugal) by an experienced watchmaker in 2016 .
Please check their website, and see their work in watch restoration (
All functions works properly, keeping accurate time. Chrono starts and stops well, but minutes counter not always reset to zero.
This does not affect watch functions and time keeping, it is due to watch age and chrono movement parts are a little bit wear by time and no longer available, but chrono does work and with excellent time keeping
Please have in mind the watch is a vintage piece, so care must be taken.
Watch is described in UNIVERSAL GENEVE Book by SALA which is a world reference for this brand and particularly their chronographs
I am based in Portugal, so if buyer is from outside European Union, it is buyer responsibility to pay all taxes and import duties.
I am not responsible if any delay happens at customs for Inspection.
