Rolex Submariner 5512 

The first very first Rolex Submariner was released in 1955. The Submariner 5512 was debuted just a few years later in 1959. This vintage timepiece comes with an Excellent Mark 1 Maxi dial.  Its stainless steel 93150 Oyster bracelet is stamped I5.  The Excellent case has the bi-direction rotatable black bezel and houses an automatic 1570 movement. The tritium markers have aged to a beautiful creamy color. The second and hour hand match perfectly while the second hand has aged one shade darker. The reference 5512 features a chronometer rating (making it stand out from the more common 5513) and it was the first Submariner to feature the now signature over-sized crown.  The Submariner 5512 was famously worn by Steve McQueen. His personal watch sold at auction in 2009 for $234,000! Manufactured in 1979, this watch is a spectacular example of a vintage Rolex and a true find for anyone who would like to have a piece of the brand's history.

    I believe they are trustworthy. Their products are exceptional and match their descriptions.

    Everything is fantastic, box, papers, warrenty, tags.... But the bracelet has been polished, while it said it didn't, and the watch itself has many more little and light scratches that I didn't expect, for me it's condition 2,not 1,as you said..... Not very happy about it..... Best regards. Jacopo anticoli

    This was the most seamless and transparent buying experience. I purchased the watch on a Monday night and received it on Wednesday morning. I cannot be more pleased with both the purchasing process and the outcome.
