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. What started as an effort to commemorate SAS’s (Scandanavian Airlines Systems) polar flights from New York/Los Angeles directly to Europe, has become not only one of the most famous wristwatches of all time, but among the most beautiful.
