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 the original fat font bezel insert and Tritium dial. It has a stainless steel Rolex USA rivet expansion link bracelet which is in beautiful shape. The unpolished case has the original rotatable black bezel, fantastic bevels, and houses an automatic 1570 movement. Its original matte black dial has yellow creamy hour makers and the original hands match beautifully! 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! This 1966/1967 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.
