Universal Geneve “POLAR Router” Automatic circa 1954


Much has been written about the history of the Polerouter, the first Gerald Genta designed model and the watch made to celebrate commercial airline travel over the shorter polar route, but not much has been said about the earliest version. This vintage Universal Geneve Polarouter, yes you read that correctly, is the earliest version of the famous U.G. watch, and was changed to the later Polerouter just a few months into it’s life.

Featuring a 35mm stainless steel case with bombe style lugs and steel screw down case back with U.G. logo. The Polarouter is powered by a self winding, 17 jewel Caliber 138SS  movement with sweep second. Beautiful condition original two tone silver dial with printed cross hairs pattern and aging that begins to dance in the right light. The outer edge is sloped milled metal, the dial has applied hour indexes and original tapered, luminous, dauphine hands and signed crown. This earlier no date model offers an especially clean, and unobstructed aesthetic.

Fully serviced and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate time keeping and operation. Offered on your choice of fine leather or exotic skin strap. Also accompanying your purchase is one of our beautiful handmade Italian leather watch travel pouches, a $45 value!
