    Hi

    I purchased this watch in Germany a little over a year ago and have been strugling to find anything about it at all. It has a calibre 2-27 25 jewel movement in it, I'm thinking from the 70's. I found one example of a similar one in a stainless steel but not in the gold as of my example, any help?

    Not a Unisonic. Those have tuning fork movements. Also not gold, but gold plated, to judge from the steel back. 1970s sounds right.

    thanks for the information, would you have any idea on the model of this watch?
    it must not have been worn much or it has a high micron level because there is no signs of wear that you would usually see on a gold plated watch of this era.

    527600 should be the model number, according to UG convention

    I don't know very much about Polerouters but aren't they inscribed as such on the dial?
    The serial no. of your watch isn't much help. The only serial no. list I can find on the web (http://forums.timezone.com/index.php?t=tree&goto=2373331&rid=0) doesn't go further than 1996/7 and terminates with 2574942. I'm surprised there isn't a more uptodate list anywhere..

    Exactly it's not a Polerouter as it would be on written on the dial and also I believe that all Polerouters had the micro rotor. It is however very similar to the late 70s Polerouters.

    It's very similar to the one above but still the dial is different. What I may have found off the internet it seems to be an unamed model inbetween the late 1960's polerouter and the late 1970's unisonic. That's where I'm at with my studies at the moment from the comparison of the dials and movements

    The Cal. 256, with the traditional center rotor, was used on Polerouters and we must not forget the electric Polerouters and the quartz Polerouters

    We've been working in shifts for the last 4 years since the previous post, and this is what we have come up with:
    Its a ladies watch from around 1970 +/-.
    Ladies references often imitated the mens references in some way, and the dials usually did not have a model name designated.
    Yours is similar to the late mens polerouter references here: https://universalgenevepolerouter.com/galleries/869125-869126-871107-polerouter-iii/

    I just responded on the other thread. I think late 60s. Whatever ... it’s not interesting to most collectors.
