1966 Vintage Rolex Submariner 5512 with Post-Tropical Gilt Dial Dial
Case & Bracelet
Excellent case that has previously been polished and shows some wear from use. The case has been “Sleeve polished” and the matte portions of the case appear shiny. The black bezel insert has faded to a medium grey and is in excellent condition showing light wear from use.
Excellent USA oval link jubilee bracelet with 19 links and matching end links.
Very good gilt dial with a post-tropical patina. The hands have aged a warm creamy hue and glow brightly when exposed to UV then fall off rapidly at the same rate. The hands are newer tritium service units and have aged an orangy hue. The hands no longer glow when exposed to UV.
The watch was sourced from the family of the original owner who is in the photo wearing the watch.
The watch is running at COSC spec.
