    Universal Geneve Polerouter

    My first Polerouter, 14K gold capped case. Movement is a 218-2 with micrometric adjustment of the regulator. It is in quite good condition. The dial can be a challenge to read in direct sunlight, so this is strictly an evening watch.

    Absolutely beautiful, thank you for sharing. "Quite good condition" is an understatement; the case and dial look nearly flawless from the front!

    Stunning example Erik - well bought. As it happens, I've been my Polerouter Jet for the last couple of days. I'm sure you'll enjoy that watch.

    I find delphine watch hands to be very visible in limited light... I had never considered the problem of reading the dial during bright light... I guess because I don't have a beautiful gold dial behind them.

    Nice, quite beautiful watch.

    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Thanks all. It is the best condition vintage wristwatch I have. In fact, it stands up well compared to my best condition pocketwatches.
