Didn't realize that either, although I really like the looks of their vintage stuff and have read some things online really praising Universal's workmanship. I was in that 99.9% group. RogerP ...thanks for that. Great story and I'm glad you were able to get that one "back in the fold". Mimo, those are all awesome pieces. Of the three, just for personal preference, I really like the beauty of that Vacheron chrono. And Mrs. Carter .... not too hard on the eyes herself.
