Why We Love it

The White Shadow is elegant and comfortable, comes from one of the best brands and watch designers, and was one for the record books. Need we even go on?

Universal Genève has been a mainstay of the watch collecting community, and with the recent news of the brand being revived by Breitling, their Polerouter and Compax models seem to be on every shopper’s shortlist. That said, there’s so much more to the brand than just those models, and for anyone in the market for a dress watch, the White Shadow just might be the perfect UG to add to the quiver.

Thanks to its record-breaking slim automatic movement, the White Shadow is a supremely comfortable watch. The 35mm stainless steel, cushion shaped case is impressively thin, but surprisingly provides a presence on the wrist with its case curves and stark white dial. 

Featuring printed black Roman hour indices and a matching black ‘pencil’ handset set, this piece offers a little something extra. Those with a trained eye will notice an additional signature stamped by the storied Swiss retailer, Türler.

Outfitted on an exceptional stainless steel mesh bracelet with a signed, locking clasp, this piece features a svelte, manual-winding UG Calibre 2-42 movement which explains why this piece sits so low on the wrist, making it a perfect choice for any formal endeavor. 

That said, if a t-shirt and jeans are more of your vibe, this piece absolutely works too, and only solidifies the White Shadow's versatility. 

Everyone and their mother’s are asking us about the Polerouter and the Compax. It’s only a matter of time before the same happens for the White Shadow! 

Brand Story

+
Universal Genève was founded in 1894 by Numa-Emile Descombes and Ulysse George Perret.

In the brand's earliest days, it established itself as a manufacturer of in-house movements of exceptional quality. Universal Genève was also among the first watch manufactures to specialize in wristwatches. In 1897, Louis Eduoard Berthoud — noted designer of complicated watch movements — joined the company. His involvement ensured Universal Genève's supremacy in the development of complicated watches in the 20th Century.

It was under Berthoud's leadership that the brand's reputation as a producer of chronographs was solidified. Chronographs, in particular — namely the Compur and the Compax lines — attracted the attention of watch aficionados, aviators, and militaries around the world. Even the Royal Family of the Netherlands issued a royal charter for Universal Genève to outfit the Dutch military with its chronographs.

Universal Genève was also once responsible for some of the most beautiful dress and time-only watches of the mid-20th century. From the purpose-driven Polerouter to the ornate Cabriolet, UG had a touch all its own and breathed incredible beauty and craftsmanship into every piece they produced. Although the brand is currently dormant, there is tremendous interest in collector circles for vintage models, and is regarded very highly by horological historians and design enthusiasts alike.
