Green is the new black. Well this being the world of watches I should say green is the new blue. For years its seemed like every watch was getting the blue dial treatment and then bam, overnight it seems like every watch has a green dial. Luckily, just as in fashion, this isn’t a new trend and green as a favorite color also had a movement in the 70s as seen in this fantastic Universal Geneva Unisonic with a striking green dial and original green strap. As we look at this watch and the green watches of today we learn that not all greens are created equall. Todays greens are darker, more tame, and radiate a more earthy and natural tone. This green would give the Hulk a run for his money. The 70s were a time to make a statement and this watch certainly does.
The 34mm stainless steel case is in excellent condition. The case shape itself is quite unique and the stepped bezel emphasizes the unique lines. The signed crown and snap on case back are both correct for the watch and thought to be original. The icing on the cake are the rarely seen original matching green Universal Geneve signed strap and buckle.
The Dial and Hands
The dial is the highlight of this watch and its bold green color provides a unique look that cant be found on modern green dialed watches. The design is extremely minimal leaving all of the focus on the dial color. A design choice that we approve of. Overall condition is excellent with no major flaws.
This watch features an electric Universal Geneve Unisonic tuning fork movement. The watch is running and the service history is not known.
