The Submariner reference 6200 is recognized by collectors as the "King Sub" - to many collectors the most desirable Rolex Submariner model. The reference 6200 was the first Rolex to feature an oversized crown, nicknamed the "Big Crown" for its 8mm size to assist. Notably, the reference 6200 features a black dial with Arabic 3, 6, and 9. It also features gold or "gilt" printing done through a galvanic process and a "chapter ring" whereby there is a circle visible around the dial showing the minute hash marks. Most examples also do not have the word "SUBMARINER" on the dial, adding to their allure and simplicity. This example is of the common version that is known and only states "ROLEX" above "OYSTER PERPETUAL" on the dial. The "Oyster" moniker notes the watch's enhanced water resistance while "Perpetual" indicates that it has an automatic movement. The present watch could be considered one of the finest examples of the reference 6200 known to the market. It features an unpolished case and has spent most of its life sitting in its original Rolex box. The Submariner reference 6200 is certainly one of the most desired vintage Rolex watches and a "holy grail" watch for sophisticated collectors.
