Ref. 5512: Nice early Submariners have been exceedingly difficult to find in nice condition, so we are proud to feature this gorgeous pointed guard 5512. This watch has a super glossy and richly aged dial and razor sharp bezel. With just the right amount of patina, this is an amazing example for the serious Submariner collector.
Pointed crown guard case is in excellent condition with sharp crown guards and thick lugs. Lug chamfers have softened with age but are clearly visible and straight. Numbers between the lugs are clean and visible. Casebook stamped 1962.
Original gilt dial in excellent condition. No swirls or hand drag, surface is like a mirror. The original domed crystal has very light crazing which can be seen in some angles, but does not seem to be visible in photos. Original tritium hands have matching luminous as dial and pearl (slightly darker).
Comes on an original 7206 expansion Swiss rivet oyster band. 12 links and 80 end pieces. The bracelet has little to no stretch and is in excellent condition.
