This early Universal Polerouter is in fantastic all original condition and is ready to wear. It is one of the most solidly built watch cases I have ever seen with huge Bombay style lugs which flow beautifully around the wide flat bezel. The black dial is near perfect, as is the mirrored chapter ring which surrounds it. The predecessor of the famous Micro-rotor movement, this in house built caliber 138 SS bumper style automatic is near perfect and running well after a recent service by our watchmaker. A sharp, classy dress watch with the rugged sporty look, this beauty fits in as well today, as the day it was made 55 years ago. Now that is timeless style at its best.
