Novedades de Universal
Parece que los nuevos calibres microrotor son realmente nuevos, y no meros NOS "de incógnito" Buena noticia...
"The new automatic Microtor UG 100 calibre was launched in Basel this year and was very well received in Basel - although I didn't get to see it. It is being made to the company's own specifications by a leading movement specialist that works for several other high-end brands. At the moment, production is very limited and the first series will be a limited edition of 100 pieces. Full production is scheduled to begin on October 1 this year and then availability will increase steadily. Universal Genève once had a very good reputation and it seems that although the brand is now Hong Kong-owned, it is the current owner's intention to earns once more the level of respect the company once had and to ensure that it continues to be very much a Swiss brand. The Microtor mvoement is an important step in that direction and its new off-centre rotor is 30% smaller in diameter than the original version. I am told this has been achieved by creating a thicker rotor, "working on two levels". The date window is at 3 o'clock."
Me alegro, ya era hora que una marca como Universal intente al menos renacer, con esa bas de movimiento puede hacer muchas cosas interesantes como reeditar sus famosos cronografos entre otras cosas.
