Originally purchased by her grandfather in and includes the original warranty dated 22 Nov 1945, this fine example is a one of a kind for the collector. The good news is we serviced it and it is ready for the discriminating collector's wrist and will last many more decades if cared for properly with routine maintenance. We also have in inventory his other Universal Geneve watch that he bought at the around same time and it also includes the original box. Both of these watches are in pristine original condition and have NEVER been polished - a rare find in watches this old.

100% satisfaction is our guarantee. Upon delivery we offer a full Three-Day Inspection/Return Privilege on all of our “Certified Previously Owned” watches. If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, we will refund your payment (less shipping charges) upon receipt of the watch in our office.

Never Worn / New Watches
A watch can only be sold as “Never Worn / New” one time! When our customers order a “Never Worn/New” watch they expect exactly that, a watch that has not been previously worn or used by someone else. Many retailers and online stores have very liberal return policies on “Never Worn/New” watches. Chances are, if you order a luxury watch from one of these stores you may receive a watch that you thought was “Never Worn/New” but may have been worn by someone else and then returned -- perhaps even dropped or damaged.
To ensure that our customers receive a true “Never Worn / New” watch, we do not accept returns on “Never Worn / New” watches.
Some products available from Swiss Watch & Diamond Exchange are special order items and are not subject to standard return policies. These items include but are not limited to watch boxes, winders, accessories, straps, dials, bezels, etc. All returns are subject to management approval, a 15% restocking fee, and must be returned unopened, in new condition, with all original papers and packaging.
