Universal Geneve Polerouter Automatic


This vintage 1960’s UNIVERSAL GENEVE POLEROUTER is a very stunning watch on the wrist! The original case is full sized, gold capped with steel back, measuring 35mm. across. The two-tone dial; having black mid-section and raised, ridged, gold outer edge along with Dauphine hands is original and very fine. The crown is original. The micro-rotor automatic winding UNIVERSAL GENEVE movement is keeping excellent time after a recent cleaning. The POLEROUTER was designed by famed watch designer GERALD GENTA, who also created the Patek Philippe Nautilus and OMEGA CONSTELLATION. The Universal Geneve Polerouter/Polerouter was the official watch of the Scandinavian Airlines System and came to the market at the same time to introduce the new POLAR route which Royal Viking began on November 15, 1954. This flight was true elegance: flying from LA. or NY straight to EUROPE, flying over Greenland whilst eating fine food and vintage wines. Those were the days.
