Up for grabs is a rare and very well-preserved first execution Universal Geneve Polerouter Sub. The first iteration of the Polerouter Sub was built as a compressor, fitted in a steel 42mm large case, and features an inner rotating bezel. This example is in excellent condition. The case does not show signs of overpolishing, if any at all, and is still thick and even. The glossy gilt dial retains most of its shine, and has aged a dark tropical brown color. The original radium lume is still present on both dial and hands, aged to a light brown and yellow color.
This watch also comes fitted on its original Gay Freres, Universal-signed bracelet, a rarity in its own right.
