Universal Genève Space Compax

Post by koimaster » June 5th 2021, 12:32am

This watch, the Universal Genève Space Compax, is one of the classics of 1960s design, with all of the great elements needed to make a fairly complicated wristwatch seem practical and attractive at the same time. In the 1950s, the final DNA Chain double helix was discovered and influenced furniture designers with their coat stands and hat racks. Later, the 1960s were all about racing cars and ultimately Space Travel. The thoughts on the name of this watch are that Universal Genève wanted to create the idea that its watch could also be adopted by NASA for the Space Programme… but actually, it was just the epitome of European styling.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
