Universal Geneve Arrow-Head Polerouter SOLD

Superb early example from the Universal Geneve Polerouter series with awesome stylized arrow-head hands and full luminous chapter ring.  This beautiful timepiece features an original factory printed black dial with cross-hair detail, a 35mm solid stainless steel case with thick solid 14k gold cap and the famous early in-house Universal Geneve bumper automatic movement caliber 138SS.  This is one of the only models in which the chapter ring, around the outer edge of the main dial is filled in with luminous between each hour mark...you can imagine how this thing would have glowed when new.  Most often on these models you find the original luminous has been removed making this piece a very rare example.
