Overall I went for what seems like originality over than a nice condition refinished watch. I love the look of the date version but don't want another non-quickset watch in my collection! Timekeeping is showing plus 12 sec per day which seems reasonable for a watch that is older than I am.

    Here's a video I made of it.
    Looks similar to mine although mine is gold plated. Need to find it really!

    This thread makes me want to get one. Beautiful watches. Perhaps i'll consider trading one of my omegas for one of these.

    I think I am right in saying one was worn in an early bond film.

    The Polerouter Sub is a sexy thing. Not so easy to come by i guess.

    The micro rotor idea always struck me as strange, I fixed one if these once and I was impressed with the quality of the watch, but still couldn’t see why a micro- rotor was deemed to be a good idea. It keeps rhe movement slim, but Omega managed a fairly slim movement with the 550 and an even slimmer one with the 1010.

    Some nice examples on this thread!

    The earlier Polerouters had bumper movements, of course, rather than micro rotor movements, albeit in a noticeably larger case...

    Apparently the milling on the chapter ring is 1/8 second apart which matches up with each movement of the second hand.

    Snapped at the Oxford History of Science Museum and flattered that my image featured in Roger Michel's virtual tour.

    You seem to have everything in multiples. That is quite a bunch of Polerouters.
    One day, whenever you are ready look forward to seeing your collection in entirety.
