After many years of collecting and four focused years of research, the Polerouter book is finally ready.
The book begins by telling the story of the Polerouter’s connection with the inaugural trans-polar flights by Scandinavian Airlines System in 1954. It continues with a chapter for each of the Polerouter models and includes additional chapters for reference material.
We collaborated with collectors from all over the world in order to curate 120 of the finest and rarest examples. Each watch has been captured in its own way to best display its unique characteristics.
The book was written with the support of Universal Genève who allowed us unique access to their archives. As a result, the book features masses of previously unseen material including technical drawings, catalogues, brochures and advertising. Also included are the original production records illustrating numerous references and bracelet options and updated information regarding serial numbers, reference numbers and logos.
The Polerouter is a cult classic and staple of any vintage watch collection and this book celebrates its history, design and diversity and is an essential purchase for not just Polerouter or Universal Genève collectors but for all vintage watch enthusiasts.
