The watch comes with box and tag, without documents
The first watch to bear his aesthetic, the Polarouter, was commissioned by the Scandinavian Airlines Systems (SAS) to be given to their pilots upon the completion of the historic Copenhagen-Los Angeles polar flight—an endeavor that effectively cut hours off flight times by opening routes over the North Pole. Officially released in 1954, the Polarouter—named after said polar flights, though the line was later rebadged Polerouter—would become the springboard for most future references within the collection. The watch is also important for its designer: Gerald Genta.
