I am considering purchasing this Polerouter. However, I have never seen this style of dial. Would anyone know if this is a legit Polerouter dial or possible a re-dial?

Also... There is some stain-corrosion at 4 o'clock outside the chapter ring. Any idea how this happens on an otherwise pristine dial? Just wondering if it is a sign of hidden trouble... Because I can't get the case back off.

no pix of back. But it is very clean. Little scratching and the 12 sided back cover looks like it has never been messed with. I suspect the back has never been off. The watch functions great. Keeps incredible time. +\_7 sec. I have tried the sticky ball and a crescent wrench ( but very gently of course ) to no avail. Any place I can send the watch to get the back off?

Thanks

Everything about the dial, hands seems correct but I've never seen a chapter ring like that before. Anybody? I'm very curious as well.

Peace,

Is the watch solid gold? These sometimes had fancier dials.

Fonts look original to late 1950's. Do you have the case reference and serial numbers?

There were many variations of Polerouter design. See for some - Polerouter - sammlung. I've not seen that chapter ring either - but I think its probably original. I take it the hour hand's under the minute hand in the picture.;-)

Yes. Both hands are present. I am also still trying to get the back off to look at the mechanism....hoping it's the 28 jewel. Didn't post a picture of the back. It's very clean. I don't think the back has ever been off. And it's keeping time to +\- 7 sec per day.

If it says Microrotor it's a 28. Be really careful about taking that back off mine is beat up pretty good by the wrong tool being used.

Peace,

I realized that I was replying to this thread in the wrong way after posting. (New to this- haven't quite figured it all out...still not sure I have yet) I added some new info that was asked for and I wanted to thank those who gave time to help.

Looks like this was @giotime's first post. Now the question is whether he still has the watch 4 years later.

One of my earliest acquisitions and still one of my favorites. Also added a couple of things along the way. The UG wrench that goes to the Polerouter caseback and after some research what I believe to be the correct and original leather band and signed buckle.

That watch is a keeper, for sure, and I like the gifts you bought for it. ;-)
