Universal Genève
Polerouter Date
Rare Black Dial / Serviced / 1960s


Intro

This Universal Geneve Polerouter Date from 1960s features its iconic layered index ring. This is truly a beautiful piece that any watch collector can appreciate. This watch has been serviced by our local watchmaker at the end of 2021.

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.
