Collection: Universal Genève

Founded in 1894 by Numa-Emile Descombes and Ulysse Perret, the Universal Genève is every vintage chronograph lover’s dream. It was the company to release the first wrist-worn chronograph in 1917, at a time when wristwatches were considered a novelty amongst gentlemen. One of the most sought-after Universal Genève models in the vintage market today is the Polerouter, designed by legendary designer Gerald Genta, the man behind Audemars Piguet Royal Oak and Patek Philippe Nautilus.
