UNIVERSAL GENEVA

The company "Universal Watch" was founded in Locle, Switzerland in January of 1894 for the production of watches, dials, domes, movements, fitted boxes and packages for watches.

In 1894 Universal patented a 24 hour indication watch.

By 1898, Universal, while producing varied high quality watches, introduced a line of  high quality chronograph and minutes recorders.

In 1919 Universal moved to the Geneva headquarter.

In 1925, Universal created a similar system to the John Harwood Bumper watch called the "Auto-Re", a self-winding system with an oscillating weight mechanism with spring-buffers.

In 1934 Universal changed the company name to "Universal Watch Co Ltd. Geneve" and introduced the first chronograph wrist-watch with two push-buttons.

Universal introduced a chronograph with an additional 12 hour register.

In 1944"Tri-Compax" model was introduced.

Sales increased incessantly all over the world. Therefore, Universal started to be a synonym for quality, good taste and reliability as well.

In 1947 a  precision automatic caliber 138 with an oscillating mass with single direction winding was introduced and then the   "Polerouter"  ( previously called "Polarouter") was introduced.

In 1955 Universal Geneve introduced the calibre 215 "Microtor", a new automatic calibre with a small rotor incorporated into the movement rather than on the top (the smallest automatic movement at that time).

WE DECIPHERED EVERYTHING BUT THE SILVER SMOTH (SP) AND THE N OR M UNDER THE SERIAL NUMBER

London hallmarks:1896-1915

THANKS TO THE "MASTER OF THE CARTOUCH"

http://www.silvercollection.it/

THE ABOVE CARTOUCH/HALLMARKS INFORMS US OF THE YEAR OF MANUFACTURE, THE METAL  CONTENT, THE CITY OF IMPORTATION AND THE MAKER.

IN THIS CASE WE HAVE:

A) A 925 IN OVAL WHICH IS STERLING SILVER 92.5% PURE SILVER

B) A LONDON IMPORT MARK CONSISTING OF AN INVERTED OMEGA ON A CROSSED OVAL CARTOUCHE -OVAL FOR SILVER VS RECTANGULAR FOR GOLD.

C) AN "S" IN AN "M CARTOUCHE SIGNIFIES THE DATE OF 1913/14/

NOTE: THE "S" DATE CARTOUCHE HAS THREE DATES: 1917 1933 1941. THE ONE FOR THIS WATCH IS THE MATCHING THE CITY IMPORT CODE. THE LONDON IMPORT CODE ON THIS TIMEPIECE MEANS NOT BIRMINGHAM OR ANY OTHER CITY. SO A 1913/14 DATE APPLIES. 

D) THE SILVERSMITH/S WHO MADE THE CASE A RECTANGULAR WITH CENTER STACK CARTOUCHE WITH S P IN THE CENTER. OUT TWO DAY RESEARCH DID NOT TURN UP THE SILVERSMITH/S.

E) THE SERIAL NUMBER 144618

F) A N OR M. WE HAVE NOT DECIPHERED THE MEANING.

UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE all watches offered by GSW have been SERVICED. Some required REPAIR AND RESTORATION! Normal Servicing of Mechanical Watches by an EXPERT PROFESSIONAL will run between $180.00 to 580.00, depending on the complication of the movement and that is WITHOUT parts that may be required. SERVICING means DISASSEMBLING THE ENTIRE WATCH AND MOVEMENT, CLEANING SAME, OILING, LUBING AND REASSEMBLING, timing and Sealing. RESTORATION is a separate service from SERVICING and may include CRYSTAL, DIAL, HANDS, CASE, LUGS and BAND. So, WHEN YOU VIEW VINTAGE AND CLASSIC WATCHES OFFERED BY OTHER VENDORS/DEALERS, the question is: WAS THE WATCH SERVICED?

All watches, from mechanical to quartz devices, require periodic cleaning and inspection. GSW provides both cleaning and repair services with our main specialty that of restoring and repairing classic & vintage watches. GSW has established parts accounts with the oldest watch parts houses in the world as well as a network of watch dealers and repair centers around the world.
