1965 Vintage Rolex Submariner 5512 with Meters First Gilt Spider Cracked Dial
Case & Bracelet
Excellent case that has previously been polished and shows some wear from use. The newer black bezel insert that shows some light scratching and is also in excellent condition.
New black NATO strap.
Good meters first gilt dial with extensive spider cracking patina. The 6, 7, 8, 9 markers have mostly flaked off do not respond to UV light, but the rest of the markers glow brightly when exposed. The hands have been relumed and stained to match the patina on the dial. Some of the hand material appears to have bled onto the steel portions of the hand during the process.
The watch is running at COSC spec.
