Back to overview

The watch brand Universal Watch, founded in 1898, pursued the goal of producing complicated timepieces, primarily with chronograph function, as well as trading in watches of all kinds.

Thanks to ambitious financiers, Universal was able to create an attractive collection of precision timepieces in the mid-30s, which was mainly appealing to the Mediterranean countries. In 1937, Universal patented the first chronograph with a 12-hour counter, particularly popular among collectors, the Compur and Compax models - the Aero Compax has an additional dial, the Medio-Compax has a pulsation scale and the Tri-Compax models with chronograph with full calendar and moon phase.

In 1958, Universal introduced an automatic model with a micro rotor - the well-known Universal Polerouter.

From 1967 to 1977, the company Bulova took over the heritage of Montres Universal SA, which also includes some tuning fork models called Universal.
