Here we have a rarely seen 1967 Universal Geneve Unisonic Rare Buzzsaw Dial 852101 with a 35.5mm “C-shaped” stainless steel case that sits on your wrist with stubby lugs, and a lug-to-lug length of 39.5mm and a case thickness of 10mm ensures a comfortable fit. On the right side a slightly recessed signed crown. A thin bezel holds a domed acrylic crystal above a distinctive sunburst red buzzsaw dial, an outer minute track is precisely executed with the ascending-sized baton markers in tones of red resulting in a creative aesthetic. At 3 o’clock a framed date window, slender baton hands infilled with Tritium is complemented by a tapered second hand. At 12 o’clock we have the Universal Geneve motif and at 6 o’clock “Unisonic”. On the reverse, a screw-down case back, inside a Tuning Fork Universal Genève calibre 2-51 is a licensed Accutron Calibre 2180F, developed by Max Hetzel and William Bennett of Bulova. The watch comes paired with a well-suited 20mm red leather strap.
I am forever on the hunt for interesting and unique watches, something I have never seen before and something I know you will all find equally amazing! This Universal Geneve Unisonic "Buzzsaw" is exactly one of those watches, featuring a Tuning Fork movement and the most striking dial I have seen on a UG yet, this offers a big punch for the price tag, I wouldn't hesitate on this one if it interests you!
Universal Genève was founded in 1894 in Le Locle, Switzerland as Universal Watch, by two Horology students Ulysses-Georges Perret and Numa-Emile Descombes. By 1919 they had moved their operations to Geneva and renamed the brand Universal Genève. They have been owned by Stelux, a Hong Kong investment group, since 1989.
