Universal Geneve Gilt Shadow Ultra-Slim

Universal Geneve Gilt Shadow Ultra-Slim

SKU: VWS-1257

Here is a stunning, all original ultra-slim Universal Geneve Gilt Shadow from 1975 in near mint condition. The brushed brown dial is in very fine condition with barely any marks. It has gilt lettering UG logo and golden strip hour markers. The golden fils hands are in excellent condition. Note that due to the ultra slim profile, this watch does not have a seconds hand.


The gold plated tonneau case with the original crown and crystal is in very fine condition, with only light overall wear. The stainless steel case back is in very fine condition, with a brushed pattern and just a couple of small marks.


The watch comes on an after market leather strap of good quality.


Inside the watch, UG’s fantastic 2-66 movement with the micro-rotor contributes to the ultra-slim profile of the watch. The watch was fully serviced in November 2021 and comes with a 12 month warranty on its proper mechanical functioning.


This is an iconic 70’s dress watch, looking larger than it is due to its very slim profile. This is a watch not only for vintage enthusiasts but for anyone wanting a watch on their wrist combining stylish and timeless design with leading edge engineering.



Our watches are delivered in a luxury wooden watch box, fully serviced with a 12 month warranty that covers the mechanical functioning of the watch under normal use. We offer 14 days full return rights and are very proud of our reputation for outstanding customer satisfaction.


NB! Note that the buyer is responsible for any import fees their country may impose on a purchase from abroad. Ask us if you have any questions.
