Overall, the watch is in excellent condition. The black glossy dial is in perfect condition – absolutely flawless, showing an amazing patina. Both dial and hands show original radium. The watch case appears to be unpolished, in excellent condition. The watch was recently serviced by our watchmaker, keeping very accurate time. It is running with an amplitude of over 300° and +10s/d time deviation. The watch was acquired from a passionate collector in Rome, Italy.
This is without a doubt, the rarest and most interesting Polerouter. The idea to come up with a radium circle and leave open spaces as hour markers was new and bold. This is one of those watches that you can hunt for years without finding a good example for sale anywhere.
