About Universal Genève:
Universal Genève is an iconic name in the world of vintage watches, from their Polerouter designed by Gerald Genta to their complicated Compax's it's easy to forget that they made stunning dress watches. Universal Genève was founded in 1894 in Le Locle, Switzerland as Universal Watch. The brand began as an establissage, a fancy French work for a workshop that assembled the various parts of a watch. At this time in history, this meant taking delivery of ebauches (movements produced by a third party), inspecting these movements, then fitting the dial, hands, and cases with the movement before packaging the watch up for shipment. By 1919, the brand had officially moved most of its operations to Geneva, completing the transition to Universal Genève.
