1960 ROLEX SUBMARINER
REF. 5512

Description of this Rolex

General description:

With very rare MK1 dial, this watch is one of the earliest 5512. The watch is all original and would make a great addition to any collection.

Case:

Incredible unpolished case has ultra sharp original beveled edges. The bezel, insert, crystal and crown are original.

Dial:

Original MK1 gilt gloss chapter ring dial with silver depth rating. The dial remains super glossy, while the top coat of lacquer has completely crazed in a rather beautiful manor. Reminiscent of an old oil painting the dial is bright and alive. There is some aging around each luminous marker. The hands are original and have aged a touch lighter.

Bracelet:

Excellent swiss made riveted expansion bracelet dated 1960 in excellent condition is original to the watch.
