    bad redial, wrong chrono sweep, wrong crown, maybe wrong pushers (can't tell if they are rose on a yellow gold case or if that's just the crown?)

    Apologies for my obnoxious visceral reaction::facepalm1:: ... I’m sure it looks better in the metal than these pics. Wear in good health.

    Thanks for the heads up. I knew a few things looked off and couldn’t find a similar watch.

    Cheers.

    Congrats on the purchase... When it arrives could you measure the crown if possible? Mine has a replacement crown and i'd really like to know what diameter to be searching for!

    Curious as to why no one’s biting at that grey/blue one right now...

    No problem. As it's a bumper, I would be very surprised if the crown was not just one of the standard signed domed Polerouter bumper case crowns.

    I'll check and let you know when it arrives.

    I'm delighted to say that the Broad Arrow Polerouter arrived today and it seems to be a truly great example. The case seems unpolished and everything seems entirely original including the crown (5.1mm diameter @rahilb) and amazingly a signed crystal too. Now it's off to the watchmaker for a service and to have that chapter ring aligned correctly.

    I was having a look at this Polerouter date on eBay and it seemed weird to me but I just couldn't figure out what was wrong with it. I know it's not the correct case but still, something seemed off with the dial. After a while, I figured out that it just looks like someone added a Polerouter Date dial and chapter ring into a case. That's innovative... a Polerouter Fusion.

    Spotted this piece on Analog/Shift. Thoughts?

    I think it's correct. I remember this model because there are several design elements that look jarring to me, but I have researched it in the past, and found other identical examples.

    Personally, I don't like the Dauphine hands with the stick applied markers, the blank space on the outer edge of the dial, and the proximity of some text to the edges of the subdials. But this is just my subjective opinion about the design, other examples I have seen are identical. Probably not the type of comments you were asking for. ;)

    the dial looks not really attractive to me personally, but it's just my taste, other than that everything else looks fine.

    Oops, now I feel bad for criticizing the style.

    [Edit: Nope, I took a look and I'm still not a fan. ;)]
