Description

There's no shortage of vintage watches, and certainly no shortage of wrists on which to don them, but rare is the watch that can check multiple boxes in the heart and head of a collector.

Take for example this lovely Universal Genève stainless dress watch. Dating from the 1950s, it features a Polerouter-style twisted lug case sized at 33.5mm, Calibre 138SS automatic bumper-wind movement, and a silver satin dial with applied dart indices with Arabic numerals at the quadrants - giving it a distinctive Explorer-esque vibe. It also uses a 'dauphine' handset with center seconds and features an applied logo at 12:00.

Pushing this lovely watch into the realm of true rarity, however, is the secondary signature on the dial - that of J.E. Caldwell & Co - a storied Jeweler in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, who originally retailed the timepiece. This signature, as obscure as it might be for those outside the Keystone State, is a window into how the industry used to be run. Today, finding a retailer signature on a contemporary piece is incredibly rare and usually only found on ultra-luxury brands. But in the 1950s the world of mechanical timekeeping was experiencing boom times, and major houses such as Universal Genève were more than happy to produce special dials for their key accounts.

This lovely piece is not only a work of art, but a legitimate historical artifact!
