1955 Rolex Submariner James Bond 6536/1

Product no.: RO181661


This is a fantastic example of a no-crownguard Submariner and one of the earliest that we have ever come across.

It has a stunning glossy gilt chapterring dial with the coloured depth rating. The Radium indices glow for a very small time, when exposed to a UV lamp - just as they should. Which is also the case for the very nice gilt handset with lollipop second hand.
One of the main features of this watch is certainly the no-hash bezel insert, which is scarcely ever seen anywhere.
Matching the fantastic condition of dial and bezel is the case. It has hardly any signs of wear and is still in its original shape.
The acrylic domed crystal is in nice condition, as well. On the pictures you can see some smaller scratches around the edges. They are well visible under a photo-lamp. In real they are hardly noticable and can be polished off, of course.
The cal. 1030 movement has still its original butterfly rotor. It's running ok but it has not been serviced, yet. A service can be provided at extra charge.
It comes on a very nice 1969 marked rivet Oyster bracelet and with the original box but with no paper work.

All in all the watch delivers a very coherent image of a well preserved, rarely worn Submariner in its stunning original condition.
