1956 Universal Geneve Polerouter ref. 20217-4
What We Fancy
The Polerouter is one of those watches that you need to wear on the wrist to really appreciate its genius design. Famously designed by a young Gerald Genta, you know, the guy who designed the Nautilus & Royal Oak. The Polerouter has so many great qualities for such a simple watch that one can only think it will continue to steadily rise in value. The perfectly executed dial flows well w/ the hefty steel case. The long twisted lugs make the 35mm case wear considerably larger. The outer imposing silver track carries some serious Mad Men dress watch vibes. This being an earlier model, the case is slightly larger than most Polerouters on the market.
