1954 Universal Geneve Monodatic - Ref. 200103-2
One of the very first Universal Genève featuring the famous Gérald Genta Design.
WHY IS THIS WATCH SPECIAL
Designed by a young Gerald Genta, the 'Monodatic' with inverted lugs features a revolutionary design in watchmaking history and is a welcome addition to any collection. This particular model with the rare 138C 'Bumper' automatic movement was produced only for one year .
The 'Inverted lugs case' was designed in 1954 by a 24-years-old named Gerald Genta, the very same man who, almost 20 years later, would design the legendary Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and the Patek Philippe Nautilus. It was fitted with a bumper movement like the one you see here, one of the first produced and boasts a robust stainless-steel case with a silver satinated dial.
