Incredible 1959 Rolex 5508 Submariner in fantastic condition.
This stunning piece comes from our private collection of over 10 years and has a gorgeous deep mirror dial in perfect condition with perfect gilt two tone gold and silver print and original lume that has gone a beautiful yellow tone and matching hands. The dial is one of the best we have ever seen on any small crown watch and is why it has remained in the private collection so long. A really rare chance to purchase a watch of this quality.
The case is in lovely condition as can be seen in the photographs with bevelled lugs, clean sides and brushed lug tops and has a 488,xxx serial number clearly visible engraved on the case dating the watch to 1959. It comes on a really nice straight end rivet bracelet stamped 2.59 also (end links can be added if wished). The bi-directional bezel is in great condition and has a beautiful original faded seal grey fat font insert.
The movement is the correct 1530 calibre and is clean, serviced and keeping time.
This is a wonderful piece that would not be out of place in the collection of any of the most serious vintage watch collectors.
Video available by request and viewing in person in the East Midlands (elsewhere by agreement) highly recommended as always.
