This is a highly rare Rolex Red Submariner for "Fuerza Aerea del Peru". When you do see a Rolex issued to the Peruvian Air Force, it is usually a Daytona. It is extremely rare to find a Rolex Red Submariner! Aside from having the Peruvian Air Force markings on the back of the case, this watch also has the issue number '47'. Usually the issue numbers have been polished away. This really is an exceptional and highly collectible vintage Rolex Red Submariner. The original dial is nice and clean and has a very pleasing lume. The case on this watch is also sharp and strong. This piece of history comes with Rolex Geneva Service papers.

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.
