Kind of appears to be like this Triple Disc, but some details are different.

^Thanks for that, Moo.


The two watches do indeed look very similar.


The auction you linked to was by the same seller as the auction that I'm looking at. I don't know whether that's reason for concern, or not.


I also noticed that the UN watches look very, very similar to a vintage watch from the 1940s called the "Harvel Date-o-Graph":



That may just be coincidence, or perhaps UN was making a similar watch under license (or vice versa), but the very, very close resemblance - down to the "BREVET+" writing between the 31 and the 1 on the outer dial - does give me further pause and does make me more suspicious that it could be a frankenwatch with a refinished dial that has had "Ulysse Nardin" inscribed on it instead of the far less well known "Harvel". Hmmm...

Well, at the risk of sounding both obsessive and boring, I found another very similar watch by a defunct brand called Election Grand Prix or something similar.

The movements look very similar.
