Universal Genève Microtor Cabriolet New Dial Versions

First launched at Baselworld 2008, the Microtor Cabriolet is now graced with two new dials enriching a range already comprising six different versions.

In response to the ongoing success of its new model, Universal Genève has decided to treat it to two new resolutely “UG” dial versions – meaning understated and stylish. The galvanic anthracite version features grey-painted and white-rimmed Arabic numerals, while the white-painted version has grey-rimmed blue Arabic numerals.

The typography of the numerals has been stretched out to blend in harmoniously with the shape of the model. While the hour and minute hands are diamond polished and solid on both models, the seconds hand is blued on the white-dial version.

These two new references are available on a black genuine crocodile leather strap as well as on a black Barenia leather strap featuring a folding-buckle clasp.
