A Universal Genève Polerouter is a great choice. But do you know the dive version ? This Polerouter Sub is a very rare watch, actually 2nd execution of the 2nd generation of Polerouter Subs, famous by its unusual asymetric case. Designed with the objective of protecting the crown, it gives the watch a very bold look and a strong presence on the wrist.

Very well preserved, this watch comes with its extremely rare Gay Freres bracelet in very good condition and with good length. To add to the rarity, the glass is original to the watch, featuring the famous trapezoïdal date magnifier and engraved with the UG logo in the middle. Oveverall, the look, construction and this gorgeaous patina make it a highly desirable and rare timepiece.


Brand: Universal Geneve
Model: Polerouter Sub
Reference: 869116/02
Year: Circa 1960
Case material: Stainless Steel

The watch is overall in excellent condition. The case looks great, showing light and usual wear marks, most likely unpolished. The dial is in perfect condition, showing a stunning patina. The bracelet shows little stretch. The movement has been professionally serviced.
