Here we have a Vintage Rolex 5508 Submariner For Sale from 1962.
The gilt dial Rolex 5508 is one of my favourite watches and is never easy to let go.
But needs must and it’s replacement is already here, so this is a chance for someone to get hold of a really beautiful piece.
The rare vintage Rolex 5508 submariner dial on this watch is a real beauty. The gloss is incredibly deep and the gilt printing is simply perfect and the gilt chapter ring dial has no chips whatsoever.
Few pieces are as good looking as very good gilt dial submariners in my opinion.
A strong fat case with clear serial and model numbers and original 1530 movement, this piece is going to look great in any collection. A one owner watch bought new in 1965 but sadly without any of the original paperwork. Serviced by Rolex in 1972 and in 1986 as also inscribed inside caseback.
Often incorrectly referred to as the James Bond Rolex it is still extremely cool!
I will let the pictures do the talking. It won’t hang around….
