Links to online auctions and other sites: Links to online auctions, dealer sites or other listings of items are permitted, but you should be careful to ensure that such listings will comply with our other ChronoTrader Policies. In addition, we request that sellers linking to online auctions or listings offer some benefit or accomodation to ChronoTrader readers (for example, some discount or an undertaking to end an auction early, to keep a watch "in the family"). Photos must be of the actual item for sale in its present condition. No counterfeit or replica products. No post for the same item may be repeated within 7 days, except to lower the asking price. Commercial dealers are limited to three unique posts per day. [More...]
Rare early Polarouter model for sale. The watch was renamed the Polerouter within the first 12 months of production and these Polarouters are seldom seen as they were made in relatively small numbers.
I am selling this with an original Polarouter box. Whilst the box is not in perfect condition, this is an extremely rare survivor indeed and these boxes are very rarely offered for sale. These boxes are thought to have accompanied the original SAS Polarouter watches.
