Although every decade os Universal Genève’s production is highly regarded by collectors the sixties holds a special spot. See Universal Genève was known for its high quality complicated watches, full calendar chronographs and classic but beautiful designs the designers decided to take a huge turn in the 1960s. From classic to excentric the step was huge but they managed to do so in such a way that even with a multicolored dial you could still feel the breed of the brand. This beauty. Speaking of beauty, this is probably one of the top 10 most beautiful chronographs of all time. The so called Big-Eye, because of its big minute register. Housed in a 37mm stainless steel case and powered by a Valjoux 23 movement, it ticks the boxes for a nice chronograph but this watch is much more than that. It is one of the rarest watches in the world, with only a few hundreds produced and only half of that believed to still exist.

Compared to the thousands of Paul Newman available and regularly hammered over ten times this Big-Eye price…vertiginous.
