I have soft spot for old bumper automatics, so I have no problems adding a Universal Geneve to my collection. The watch is not ticking and the case is in need of replating.I start of by taking the movement out of the case and sending the case off for replating. The dial is not perfect but still has a nice look to it.The movement is in good condition. Someone has been testing the winding mechanism using a screwdriver scratching the surface of the weight. Something you too often find in bumper automatics. I remove the weight and the auto winder bridge revealing more of the base movement.I like that the way the rotor axle is jeweled. Sweep second hand pinion is held in place by a tension spring, not my favourite construction, but it does the trick.The balance and pallet fork removed.Gear train visible. There is some solidified grease here and there, but nothing to bad.The mainspring has seen better days. The bottom plate and setting mechanism. After cleaning the movement, it has a new shine to it! Here testing that the balance moves freely.An unusual feature is the setting lever being fastened from the top plate.New mainspring correct size 1.35 x 8.0 x 0.09 x 250mm.The setting mechanism back in place.The gear train is back in place.The movement back together and ticking. I do not wind the watch fully for testing, as the winding wheel is not held in place before the auto winder bridge is back in place.The movement back in the newly restored case.Auto winder mechanism back in place looking good.Performance is excellent for such a old watch!I bought the watch from the US so the case is made by Star watch case & co. This was done so that the dealers could save on import duty. I guess collectors prefer the Swiss case, but I enjoy this piece of history.A good looking classic with a great movement.This watch is nice and thin and makes for a great dress watch.
