    Looking at universals (couldn't fall asleep) and came across this 18k watch. Looks very similar to the same model Tri compax posted by Larry S. I checked the serial number and this watch is actually 3 digits before his.

    Studying his watch this one looks to have had the crown replaced and case polished l. Any issues with the dial? Brazil seller...

    Correct on crown ... not even a later UG signed one. Case is polished. Will need a service. What is going on with that dial? 31 looks like smeared red sharpie. Hands are rough. I feel sorry for watches like this. So much potential. If you go for it push hard on that price although it is already significantly lower than what I paid for mine. Crown can be corrected. Dial might be ok to live with while you cast about for a replacement. Hands ... fuggetaboutit!

    Are the “memento” hands correct? I’ve seen different variations, but these seem out of place.

    Be careful with this one, it's a scam. I bought this exact watch from this seller a few months ago and lost my money. I have contacted the website twice and they won't do anything about it.

    Letting everyone know so that it doesn't happen to anyone else.

    I've edited it to add the pictures.

    Did anyone here snap up this Polerouter sub on eBay?

    I'm pretty sure the bezel is wrong but I didn't know how easy it would be to source a replacement. Otherwise it looked like a interesting project.

    These hands are usually seen on the other type of second generation Polerouter Sub but I have seen this combination before. With a new bezel, a relume of dial and hands, a thorough service and polish of what looks to be the original crystal it could look great.

    I just wasn't sure that after all that work, there was any value left, given that it eventually sold for $3200.
