Manufactured in the 1940s, this is a highly rare Universal Oyster Design Waterproof Chronograph with a very scarce Big XII Roman dial. It uses a rare early type screw-back case called the Oyster Design, which closely resembles the case of Rolex. The dial features a gray two-tone color with four sub-dials reminiscent of the Aero Compax, and at the 12 o'clock position, there is a large pink "XII" layout, creating a striking Big XII dial. Despite its small size of 33mm, it showcases a sense of weight and value unique to early waterproof cases, along with a precious original bracelet and an impressive Big XII dial that exudes a remarkable presence beyond its size. It is a superb timepiece that houses the Universal Cal. 381 movement.
