Rolex Submariner Sells For £192,000
15th May 2018
Selling for £192,000 (inclusive of premium) was this very rare vintage Rolex Submariner 5512 with the 3-6-9 Explorer dial.
Purchased by the vendors late father, a former RAF officer in the early 1960s, the watch had remained in the family since and amazingly came with all the boxes and papers, it was also in great condition for the period with odd mark and glass scratch excused!
These rare Submariners with Explorer dials were believed to be produced in very small numbers during the late 1950s and early 1960s.
A similar watch with this style of dial was sold at Bonhams, 15th December 2010, ex lot 434 for what was then a staggering £78,000. Only a few examples are known to collectors with this style of dial printing.
