Why We Love it

We. Love. Polerouters.

Most likely, that will come as no great shock to those of you who know us. As far as general aesthetic, history, provenance, and wearability go - the Polerouter is one amazing value proposition that punches far above its weight class.

The one we have here represents a great entry point to the model with all the hallmarks of the classic Genta design: curved lug case, crosshair dial, silvered rehaut, and dauphine handset.

Powered by the Calibre 138SS bumper-wind automatic movement and paired up with one of our new Analog:Shift leather straps, this is an incredibly fun and rewarding watch to wear and collect with true historical significance!

Brand Story

+
Universal Genève was founded in 1894 by Numa-Emile Descombes and Ulysse George Perret.
In the brand's earliest days, it established itself as a manufacturer of in-house movements of exceptional quality. Universal Genève was also among the first watch manufactures to specialize in wristwatches. In 1897, Louis Eduoard Berthoud — noted designer of complicated watch movements — joined the company. His involvement ensured Universal Genève's supremacy in the development of complicated watches in the 20th Century.
It was under Berthoud's leadership that the brand's reputation as a producer of chronographs was solidified. Chronographs, in particular — namely the Compur and the Compax lines — attracted the attention of watch aficionados, aviators, and militaries around the world. Even the Royal Family of the Netherlands issued a royal charter for Universal Genève to outfit the Dutch military with its chronographs.
Universal Genève was also once responsible for some of the most beautiful dress and time-only watches of the mid-20th century. From the purpose-driven Polerouter to the ornate Cabriolet, UG had a touch all its own and breathed incredible beauty and craftsmanship into every piece they produced. Although the brand is currently dormant, there is tremendous interest in collector circles for vintage models, and is regarded very highly by horological historians and design enthusiasts alike.
