Universal Genève
"Polerouter" Automatic
Gold-Capped Case / 1968


Intro

This Universal Geneve "Polerouter" from 1968 features its iconic layered index ring and gold-capped case. This is truly a beautiful piece that any watch collector can appreciate.


Story

One of Genta’s most stunning contributions to watch design is also one of his earliest, occurring nearly two decades before his work with Audemars Piguet and Patek Philippe. As the story goes, in 1954, Universal Genève tapped Genta–then just 23-years old–to design a watch to commemorate SAS’s (Scandinavian Airlines Systems) polar flights from New York/Los Angeles directly to Europe. That watch would come to be known as the Polerouter–later renamed to Polerouter–and it would spawn a highly successful family of watches for Universal Genève.
