Price and Value
BusinessWeek cited the market value of most Universal Genève watches from the 1960s as approximately ranging between $2,500–$3,500 (figures adjusted to 2010 inflation)
Among the rarest and most expensive of Universal Genève timepieces includes the 'Golden Janus', a 1994 centennial of the 1930s Cabriolet, which were limited to 10 in number and have realized at an upwards $50,000 (43,700 CHF) at auction.
Universal Genève's 'A. Cairelli Rattrapante' - an aviator's chronograph - consists of a 24-hour dial with a 16-minute register. Manufactured in Rome, the wristwatch was produced only sporadically between 1939 and 1945 and was originally meant for the Royal Italian Air Force (Reggia Aeronautica Italiana). At auction houses such as Sotheby's and Christie's, the Universal Genève Cairellis have closed between an estimated $30,000 and $130,000.
