  • The end game for connoisseurs of UG and appreciation of iconic and rare timepieces.

    This Universal Geneve BA Polerouter, like the Omega 2915-1 Speedmaster and the Rolex Daytona are iconic watches with amazing designs that have stood the test of time. You can search for a decade and not find a good example of this watch! I have not seen many examples and to find one with this incredible lume preservation is genuinly exciting.

    The Gerald Genta design is an example of watches pushing design bounderies. This combination of the lume filled broad arrow hands and outer 12 segments of lume were proof of that.

    This is a automatic bumper in good running condition with a caliber 138ss.

    The watch has its original signed UG crown, and the case and serial numbers are visible and not polished out.
