Rolex Submariner 5512 Meters-First Matte Dial


The meticulous matte 12…

We are delighted to offer this very rare 5512 with stunning matte dial. The 5512 was the chronometer-rated brother of the 5513, both no date Submariners in the Rolex family.
This example dates to 1967 and features a four-line matte dial in really stunningly good condition, which is rare for these dials!! The zinc sulfide hour markers and hands have no corrosion and have turned a pleasing dark cream colour. The case is good and strong in all areas. The fat font bezel has faded to a cool navy-blue hue that really pops in the sunlight. The caseback has a light inscription("David Kim"), which would easily polish out, but we like it as part of the Sub’s story!
The reference 9315 folded-link Oyster bracelet is in excellent condition, has the rare mis-spelt ‘PATETED’ diver extension link and 380b endlinks. The watch has been fully serviced by our watchmaker.
