God that Patek is gorgeous. If only it didn't have all those damn diamonds on it.

Following this exploit, Universal Genève introduced a watch with the name "Polarouter" in fall 1954. It was created and designed by one of the most admired watchmakers of the 20th century, Gerald Genta. He later created the "Royal Oak" for Audemars Piguet and the "Nautilus" for Patek Philippe.

I am pretty sure that the JLC is a P478, and it is approx 32-33mm. Nope, it's not an old Daytona - it's the Heuer equivalent, an Autavia. See pic below!

No knock against CW, as I haven't ever handled one and they look fine, but they are not unique.



sorry to quote something so old...but name, model number and link for the hamilton, please? also, any additional pictures of this watch? maybe a straight shot of the dial?
