A mint example of a beautifully refurbished Universal Geneve Aero-Compax reference 22414. We have a soft spot for 1940's chronographs from Universal Geneve and this Aerocompax has to be one of the nicest we've seen. In fact, it's so nice, it's spending the weekend with me whilst I write this!

The Aero-Compax was originally designed for pilots to allow them to set not only two time zones but also calculate speed using the chronograph and tachometer scale. It's powered by the calibre 287 manual wind movement which has just undergone a full service and sports a 37mm case in close to NOS condition.

A major downside of many 1940's Universal Geneve's is the quality (or lack of) of the dials with many in such poor condition that the watches are barely usable. Some dealers fob these off as watches with patina or a vintage feel, whilst this is true in some cases most of the time it's just disingenuous. 

In this case, the owner decided to have the dial professionally refurbished by specialists in Italy. The result is nothing but stunning! Now in an ideal world where supply (and money) was plentiful, you'd probably opt for an original dial variant, but you'd have to lay out at least double the price to get an example even close to this condition. 

A truly stunning watch that will be sure to turn heads (even among purist collectors!)
