    I think it is Super clean and nice, just not in the category where people craze about.

    It's a three-handed UG with no connection to airplanes or scuba diving. *yawn*

    I assume that it's a buggered dial that somebody has tried to cover up.

    UG used the Accutron tuning fork on license from Bulova and called it Unisonic.
    Here is a very similar dual-time Accutron watch c. 1974
    The upper crown jumps the hour hand forward or back, the lower crown changes the date and when pulled out hacks the watch and sets the hands. I wonder if the UG operates in the same way?

    That's what you find in Twickenham on the day after a rugby match.

    I can't comment about the hands specific to the case reference; I don't believe sufficient data is available for these type of 3 handers. The juxtaposition of a sword-shaped hour hand with a non-sword minute hands seems to be quite common and I'd say that it's fine.

    Hi everybody! I am kind of new in the field, and I appreciate experts' advice. I love polerouters, and I have an idea of their market price. Monodatic somewhat interests me as well, but I really don't know how to give them a value.
    They ask 650 euros for this, which seems expensive, given that I've seen a fantastic guilloche version in this site for less than double.

    What do you think is a fair value?
