A restrained and yet spectacular anniversary model, inspired by the legendary Calibre UG 66 produced in 1966, the Microtor UG 100 signals the grand return of Universal Genève movements. Two years of research and development were required to produce this new off-centred micro-rotor self-winding tribute movement, chronometer-certified by the COSC. Its components are manufactured according to extremely stringent quality criteria, while the movement is more accurate than ever and now also drives a centre seconds hand.
