Common Genève’s Tri-Compax was one of many first fashions I used to be drawn to when moving into classic watches. Earlier than seeing a lot of what the world of classic has to supply, a wristwatch with a day, date, month, moon-phase, and, to high all of it off, chronograph, is mindblowing. Particularly intriguing is when that is all achieved in a wise and well-designed means, such because the UG Tri-Compax. The four-sub-register design works so properly, by no means feeling cluttered, even in examples just like the one now we have right here with giant luminous kite-shaped hour and minute palms. This dial says lots about Common Genève again in its heyday, because the model, “UNIVERSAL GENEVE,” and mannequin, “TRI-COMPAX,” are each, dare I say, afterthoughts, at all times not less than partially lined by not less than one hand.
