I was lucky enough to get a Universa 2nd hand and I'm really fond of it. The only thing that really bothers me is winding. It's really stiff and uncomfortable - and the crown, while very pretty, does the rest. As a comparison, I have only my Speedmaster and my GS, but I can not imagine that this belongs so. Does anyone have similar experiences with the manual winding? Would a service at the watchmaker help? If nothing can be done about it, I'm almost tempted to sell it again and try my luck next year with the automatic version.
