What We Fancy

Famously designed in 1954 by the legendary designer Gerald Genta, the Polerouter has become a legendary model in the vintage collecting community. Many different iterations have been released but this model has to be one of our favorites. The white dial with silver imposing outer track and thicker lugs make this wear much larger than the measurements entail. This example is in absolute mint condition with a perfect dial, an unpolished sharp case, and beautiful movement.
