This Universal Geneve Polerouter Date 869112 has a mechanical automatic self-winding UG Caliber 1-69 micro-rotor movement. It's rhodium plated, with fausses côtes embellishment, and it's constructed with 25 jewels, a shock absorber system, a straight-line lever escapement, and a monometallic balance. It includes a shock-absorber, a self-compensating flat balance spring, a 21K gold micro rotor, and the "stop oil" chemical treatment preventing oil from shifting, and thus reducing service intervals.

The Universal Geneve Polerouter Date 869112 with the cal. 69 movement was introduced in 1962. The Polerouters were designed by Gerald Genta for Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) in 1954 for their pilots who had accomplished the Copenhagen to Los Angeles polar route flight path.
