1960s Universal Geneve Polerouter microrotor “chocolate”

Universal Geneve polerouters are usually cool, but this one is special. Formerly owned by a member of the royal family of Morocco, it features an incredible milk chocolate dial, making it a unique timepiece. For some reason, the hands have been half-painted in white. Some may hate, some may love, but it is part of its history.

Its caseback is also special. Like very few Polerouters, it displays no logo, but a serial number instead. The original glass features an engraved UG logo in the middle, which adds to the rarity of the watch.

This is the kind of timepiece that makes the essence of Sabiwatches.
