Universal Geneve Tri Compax "Evil Clapton" ref 88101/02
The inverted Slow Hand chrono…
The ‘Evil Clapton’ is the ‘reverse panda’ version of the UG chronograph that Eric Clapton famously wore. This is a rare and desirable watch featuring a rare black ‘SWISS T’ dial that remains in very good original condition. The Tri-Compax features (therefore called TRI compax!) three complications; triple-calendar, moon phase and chronograph.
The 37mm case, which features twisted lugs, is in completely original condition and was manufactured by Huguenin Freres HF, who also made Omega Speedmaster cases. The black dial has four large sub dials, the top featuring a date track and moon phase cut-out. Either side of the top sub dial there are day and month cut-outs with the text in red. The steel hours and minutes hands remain in good condition and the watch is fitted with a red stopwatch hand. The rare ‘dot over ninety’ bezel remains in good, unrestored condition. The well-regarded calibre 281 movement has been fully serviced by our watchmaker.
