1960s Universal “Space-Compax” Rare Countdown-Bezel with Original Bracelet (MINT)


Universal, “Space Compax”, rare countdown bezel, mint condition, original bracelet, circa 1960s.

There are some minor scratches and aging due to usage, but this is a natural one-owner type of watch with the distinctive asymmetrical design of the case shape, rubber push buttons, the screw back water-resistant case with the original “U” markings, and the black dial with the original luminescence on the dial and all six hands. It is a wonderful piece of work that gives you a sense of taste. The original design and the high quality of the Spacecomplex have been appreciated year after year, such as the famous Cal.72 made by Valjoux, which was also installed in the Rolex Daytona. The rare countdown bezel and the original bracelet by Gayflare (corresponds to wrist size = up to 19.5cm) of the same decade are also attached. This is truly a must-have collector’s item.
