Watch details

This is an extremely rare Rolex James Bond Submariner reference 6536-1 from the mid 1950s. What makes this particular watch more rare then the ordinary 6536-1 is the depth ratio on the bottom which is written in red. This watch is in top condition with a beautiful dial, case and the original early bezel.

The Rolex Submariner

The Rolex Submariner is without a doubt one of the most successful Rolex models in history. Not only because it more than aptly served its purpose as diver’s watch, although I am pretty sure only a small number of Submariners has ever seen a spat of water. Its appearance in several James Bond movies certainly helped as well. If you omit functionality and marketing, the Submariner success is mainly due to its elegance as a timeless dress watch. It’s just one of those watches you keep looking at, regardless of wanting to know the time of day. The Submariner was launched in 1953 and officially presented at the Basel Fair in 1954.
