The Small Crown Sub with it all…

This is truly a trophy watch for the vintage Rolex collector and we are thrilled to be able to offer such a rare and fabulous quality watch. This so-called Small Crown Sub features a classic 50’s style case without crown guards and a small 6mm winding crown.

This is a beautiful example with original gilt dial, with its full gloss finish, lume plots intact and deep copper colour gilt text. As you would expect to see, the lume at six is a slightly different shade to the other hour markers.
The original hands are present, including the iconic white seconds hand. The case remains in fantastic condition with evidence of the original factory lines.

The insert is the original one with red triangle at 12, which is worth a small fortune on its own! The rivet bracelet is a reference 7206 and is in really great condition and has ref 64 endlinks and clasp stamped ‘4 56’. The watch has been fully checked and regulated by our watchmaker. It really doesn’t get better than this in No Date Sub land!

Our Service

Each vintage timepiece is individually selected and carefully inspected by our team of experts. After we buy a watch it is mechanically inspected and fully checked by our watchmaker. If necessary, the movement will be fully serviced and tested to ensure it is running to our exacting standards.

We will always describe the watch as fully as we can in our sales texts. Our zoomable images are of the highest possible quality and form an important part of each watch’s description. We will never hide or cover up any element of any watch we sell.

Key to our unparalleled service is Fedex Priority shipping, fully insured. Once you have received your watch, we encourage you to inspect it thoroughly. If you are not 100% satisfied, please let us know. We offer a 14 days return policy. Simply return the watch to get a full refund of the original purchase price.

Our Warranty

We offer a one-year warranty on the mechanical function of the watch, starting from the day of purchase. We do not guarantee the waterproof nature of any (vintage) watch, unless expressly made in writing. Therefore, our warranty will not cover any damage done to the case and/or movement by water or moisture entering the watch. Our warranty does not apply to accidental damage or mishandling of your watch and does not extend to the bracelet, case parts (including pushers, winding stem, crown and bezel), watch glass, dial and hands.
