FS: NOS Universal Geneve Compax 1950 (EU)

Hi guys!
I'm glad to present you this stunning Universal Geneve chrono, in NOS condition. This model has a beautiful silver/white (depending on lighting) sunburst dial. Features beautiful deep blue sub dials and has gorgeous gold indices and hands. Features a blue second hand. This specific reference 884.480 has the famous UG cal. 84 or Lemania 1873 (same as omega speedy movement) is housed in the original 1950's style compax case.
An interesting thing is that a change of bezel can double or triple the value of the watch! Anyway I have chosen to keep everything in the original situation.

This specific item was NEVER worn. As you can see there still are adhesives on the back of the case. This watch comes with the original (and NEVER worn) croco strap, and if you want I can add a generic italian light brown leather strap. So, to summarize:

MODEL: Universal Geneve Compax 1950
REF: 884.480
CONDITION: NOS state, there are anyways a couple very little signs caused by... time. Check the pictures.
STRAP(s): ORIGINAL UG croco strap (blue) with ORIGINAL UG buckle AND a generic light brown italian handmade leather strap (the value of which is near to 100$)
OTHER: no box no paper

Now, some pictures of this stunning watch:

PRICE: For this wonderful piece of art the NEW (reduced) price is 2600 EUR + shipping in Europe or USA (with FedEx). Item is located in Italy.
PAYMENT: Direct bank wire is preferred. Paypal (gift only) is ok.
Please contact me if you need more pictures. 
Thank you all, thank you chronocentric.
