    Just trying to help, no criticism.... your pictures are not good, lighting is too dark, they are not sharp, do not show the right angle we like to see. I'm sure better pictures would help. GLWS!

    My recordmaster is still available if you think the market has slowed, yes and no. Popular models will still fly out as soon as they are listed (slightly under market rates etc)

    I have seen your advertisements and I'm Still in the market for a compax / compur but as a ready buyer , your pictures are unattractive and the lighting makes the condition look even worse than it might be.

    Clear natural sunlight shots are the best.

    No the polerouter isn't for sale =P

    Your pictures are awesome ! So if the market is not declining then why are popular models selling BELLOW market value ? I never really liked Polerouters ! To each is own. That is a nice Polerouter !

    I know 2nd gen UG subs have many variations but this example while very nice looking seems to have incorrect hands from the later assymetrical variant. I've messaged the seller about this but he seems confident they are either unique to this reference else are service hands.

    I agree that they are hands from the reference with asymmetric case. This earlier reference would have had the steel hands.

    Indeed they are.

    They may have been replaced at a service interval or by someone in love with that style. Although later hands, IMHO they don't look out of place. I would be happy with them. If you really want to be picky, the bracelet is a 67 which was produced a couple of years later than the 2nd gen 1st execution polerouter sub.

    First time I come across this dial. Oversized two tone gold dial with HJ case ... I had to get it!

    Thanks for the reminder I was fixated on the lugs and forgot about the inside case back...

    Handsome steel bumper with London retailer's name on the dial.

    I've seen a few similar watches with a mix of gold and silver features on the dial but this one is nice with the silver numerals, silver hands etc

    Not sure if one of the hands has been changed. The hour hand looks correct for this reference but then there is no lume on the dial.

    Still looks cheap to me (I am not the seller :)).
