Universal Geneve Polerouter
Gerald Genta, ever hear of him? He’s the Swiss dude that, after some sketching, kinda created both Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak and Patek Philippe’s Nautilus. Yup, that guy. Well, before those flashy steel legends, at the fresh age of 23, he started his first big hit for a little company called Universal Geneve. He began designing the watch that would, one day, be the most iconic watch the brand would ever produce – this watch, the Polerouter.
This particular “Chronometre” variation is both rarer and a little sleeker than its brother and sisters. Instead of being defined by the famous Polerouter bullseye dial, this example features a beautiful champagne crosshair. But, of course, it retains its famous proportions and twisted lugs. Powered by the Universal Geneve caliber 215 (their first microtor movement), its a feat mechanically too.
It is, without question, an exemplary vintage wristwatch. We couldn’t be more proud but to be offering it here!!
