The watch has been just serviced and keeps good time
It is in very good cosmetic condition: note just some very minor signs of use and a discoloration on the dial between hours 5 and 7 (not really to be noticed when the watch is on your wrist)
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.

    OK except a scratch on the bottom of the case that was not mentioned into product description making me doubting it is in solid ref gold as described - looks more like a painted or plated -

    Response by seller
    Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.
    Dear Pierre,
    it is pretty impossible to describe everything, what I always do (even in this case) is to take a pic of every detail: in this case 63 pics !
    This said, the watch is used, even if in very good condition and any (small) scratch can be easy polished.
    No doubt at all that that the watch (case) is 18kt gold, being hallmarked 18K 0,750 (see the 2x detail pics).
    Yours was a good catch, being the same watch on Chrono24 quoted between 2.490 and 3.640 !
    Kind regards
