If you are looking for an immaculate 204612-2, you found one. Case appears to be unpolished with some scratches due to age. All the markings are still visible and sharp, including the serial and reference number. The crown is the original and correct big crown featured on this reference. The dial is black and glossy, with all the tritium present. The correct applied U in the dial is in perfect condition. The alpha hands are also in great condition, with no patination whatsoever. The caliber 218-2 is working flawlessly. It’s a true pleasure to wind this watch.
The Universal Geneve Polerouter is one of watchmaking’s best pieces. It is not the most complicated, neither the highest quality. This watch represents an era in which watchmaking was trully aimed at a specific purpose.
This particular watch was developed by Universal Geneve (and designed by the famous Gerald Genta) for the SAS (Scandinavian Airline System) to fly over the North Pole in the 1950s. This is a true aviation watch that, in our opinion, is still undervalued.
