1958 Vintage Rolex Submariner 5510 Big Crown with Rare "SWISS" Only Gilt Tritium Dial and Service Papers
Case & Bracelet
Excellent case that has previously been polished and shows some wear from use. The 1 o’clock lug has a small indentation on the bevel near the lug hole. The 11 o’clock lug has some scratching around the lug hole. The newer black bezel insert has faded to a bluish grey hue, is in excellent condition, and shows light wear. The pearl is a newer tritium service unit. The Reference number is obscured by end link wear. Caeback is stamped 1.58.
New tan leather strap.
Excellent and rare glossy SWISS only tritium gilt service dial with warm sandy markers and matching hands. The lume glows brightly when exposed to UV light and falls off rapidly at the same rate. There is a small portion of the lume missing from the hour hand near the center post section.
The watch is running at COSC spec.
