Unver Prima Disco Volante 37mm 1930s Manual Wind Observatory Hand Two Tone DialUnver
For auction is a 1930's Unver stainless steel oversized disco volante two tone dial 37mm with observatory hand. Unver was a registered trademark of Universal Geneve which of course makes sense looking at the name Unver but many people are unaware of this fact. This particular watch was born high grade, referenced right there on the dial with 'prima' text denoting the high quality nature: the large size, the use of stainless steel (at the time a luxury material that most watches were not made out of). There are a number of special things about this watch: chief among them and most obvious is the Observatory hour hand; then there is the two tone dial with original radium numerals showing a very light and even patina that enhances the overall look. Then there is the gorgeous case design, one of the nicer disco volante shapes from the era I have seen. It adds up to a very special three hand dress watch.
