Rolex's Submariner is perhaps the single most recognisable watch today. From its start as a diver's tool watch and appearance on James Bond's wrist to being mentioned by numerous rap artists, the Submariner has never been one to shy away from the limelight. Rightfully so, as it has arguably become a design icon in addition to a horological one.
This watch is in excellent condition for its age. There is general wear and tear to the bracelet, which has some very light stretch. The dial and lume is in excellent condition.
Comes with vintage Seahorse Rolex outer card box and inner green slash card box type.
Known by many simply as 'the Crown', Rolex has certainly done much to deserve its reputation. From its founding just over a century ago by a German immigrant in the UK, Rolex has grown to become an international behemoth, recognisable (and indeed visible) across the globe.
Compared to other modern watchmakers, Rolex is in the near-unique position where its vintage watches have developed an almost entirely distinct collector base. It's no surprise, however, given the diversity and iconic status of so many Rolex models. The vintage Rolex community has arguably brought vintage watch collecting into the mainstream by shedding light on the beauty of old, worn watches which had so long been ignored by most.
