Universal Genève Microtor UG 101

Launched at Baselworld 2007, the refined, high-performance Calibre UG 101 is a worthy descendant of the line of high quality movements conceived and developed by Universal Genève throughout its history.

The Microtor UG 101 is inspired by the key technical characteristics of the Microtor UG 100 issued in 2006 in a limited edition, including a chronometer-quality escapement.

Decorated with circular Côtes de Genève, finely engraved and gilded, the bridges of the new movement are reminiscent of the movements produced by the Manufacture in the 1950s. Specifically adjusted to meet the criteria of industrial production, this new calibre heralds the launch of an infinitely “horological” collection.
