    I just realized there's no thread here that compiles our UGs. Inspired by the "Post your Longineseses'" thread in the Longines Sub-Forum, I'm creating this thread. Maybe this can be a sticky too (hint, hint, mods :whistling:)?

    Here are mine:

    My first vintage UG, a Polerouter Date I got from @jordn:

    My Polerouter Sub:

    I spoke about how I got this here: https://omegaforums.net/threads/my-polerouter-sub-journey.33775/

    Next is the 262 I bought from @woodwkr2 for me, I mean my wife ;) :

    Then, here's the Tri-Compax I got from Private Eyes Tokyo (https://omegaforums.net/threads/my-new-tri-compax-from-private-eyes-tokyo.37891/):

    Here's my latest acquisition, a Black & Gold Polerouter:

    A bit of a lazy post from me, I have been on the road a lot lately so compiling my own WRUW posts that are part of my UGs

    It started from 0 now I think I can almost make a baker's dozen.... The population increase could almost be solely attributed to the UG thread in this forum. I even went as far as getting 2 for my Daughter who is now 4 years old....

    I must confess I don't get the Polarouter thing but with these pics I'm starting to change my mind.

    I have one, it's a ref. 884.420. It's a good watch, maybe not the most loved in a collector point of view but, imo, it representes the last sigh of UG as prestigious brand.

    Congratulations

    Thanks for the reply gop76, yeah I think it was a good deal, i paid a thousand euro for it, with the original steel bracelet. After an inspection from my watchmaker the watch is still 10 bar waterproof but the movement needs a service.
