    Universal Geneve Polarouter information

    Hello,

    I just picked up a Universal Geneve Polarouter and was hoping someone could provide some details about the watch (originality, condition, etc..). It has the bumper movement but I do not have a photo of it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Made 1954 to 1957 with a bumper type cal 138 SS. The name of these watches changed to Polerouter after either 56 or 57. Ar at least that is my understanding. Very nice condition. Looks all original to me. Someone liked to polish the case a lot.

    Looks correct. The only nitpicks would be the re-lume and some polishing to the lugs. Great guide for this model at the Springbar:

    Thanks guys. So, it isn't perfect, but is still a decent example?

    Also, here are some obligatory wrist shots!

    It is a really nice and interesting example, also, becouse of the original PolArouter logo.
    I don't think that the dial was relumed.

    Freight, that’s a lovely watch!
    Sheer cool masculine style

    I particularly like the ribbed rehaut, and I’m always a sucker for dauphin hands

    Enjoy!
