With its astoundingly designed reversible platinum / 18K pink gold case, this Universal Genève Golden Janus will surely stand out in your collection like no other timepiece. As a rare, limited-edition watch, this Golden Janus is one of only 150 pieces produced, and can prove to be a challenge to obtain.

Inspired by the Universal Genève Cabriolet timepieces produced between 1927 and 1929, this Golden Janus celebrates the 100th anniversary of the brand: 1894–1994.

Measuring 26 x 42 mm (including the lugs and excluding the crowns) and a slim 9.5 mm in height, the case offers two silvered dials: one dial features the time with applied gold Roman numerals at 12, 3, 6, and 9 with leaf-shaped gold hands, while the other dial displays a jumping hour, a minute track with Arabic numerals at 15, 30, and 45, a day / night indicator, and a subdial at 6 that displays a date track. Note the reversible 1894 / 1994 stud at the bottom of the case.

This design proves to be a brilliant reference to the ancient Roman god Janus who had two faces, which allowed him to oversee the beginning and end of a conflict as well as preside over larger concepts, such as duality, time, and transitions in life.

This manually wound watch is driven by the UG 42 caliber. It possesses a brand-new Hirsh alligator leather strap with an 18K gold and stainless steel deployant buckle.

Also included with this watch is a Rollerball Montegrappa pen that was produced specifically for this Golden Janus edition. Lovingly crafted in sterling silver, it is thoughtfully engraved with the company’s insignia and comes in its original special box complete with certificate of authenticity, accessories, and pouch.
Standout feature(s): Rare, limited-edition timepiece: one of only 150 pieces produced; phenomenal reversible platinum / 18K pink gold case; unique jumping hour function; 18K gold stainless steel deployant buckle; includes special Montegrappa pen.
