Description

The last Mohikan      -      What we have here is a beautiful example of the iconic No-Date Submariner, the probably most popular Submariner configuration until today. This particular piece dates to 1997 and is one of the last examples with Tritium dial and hands, the one we all want. The creamy patina on the lumes and also pearl makes this one stand out from the crowd and much more desirable than the later Luminova versions. The case and bracelet are preserved in a beautiful crisp condition, the dial is flawless and still retains its full gloss.  If you are looking for your very first Vintage Submariner, this is a great one to start with.

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.
