"It is a highly rare early waterproof model called 'Spireno,' which is a masterpiece Tricompax made by Universal in the mid-1950s. It is a rare piece that added waterproof functionality for the first time to the Tricompax, which is a representative model of Universal. It features a small round pusher and a dust cover, and its round and thick case form showcased a distinctive presence among the varied Tricompax models. The manufacturing period was short, and the Tricompax with waterproof functionality was later changed to a twist lug case in the late 1950s. Therefore, the initial Spireno case is believed to have been produced and distributed in extremely limited quantities. It is equipped with the renowned Cal.281, a masterpiece representing Universal, which features a triple calendar, moon phase, and three-register chronograph."
