Offered here is an incredible version of a Rolex “Small Crown” Submariner, Reference 5508, popularized by its use by James Bond in the films of the same name. This example dates to 1962 and has a radium “exclamation” dial before Rolex transitioned away from radium and applied the luminous material with tritium. This Submariner is in incredible vintage condition. The case does not appear polished, with beautiful and prevalent original thick beveled edges. The dial is beautiful, with no marks, scratches, etc. Finally, the original radium lume is present on both dial and hands, aged to a nice yellow color. The bezel insert is a period correct “Long 5” insert, in great condition, in perfect condition. Finally, the watch comes equipped on a Rolex Swiss rivet 7026 bracelet, with 64 endlinks, dated to 1960. The bracelet has 12 full links and very light stretch.
Further, this watch comes with its original early Rolex box and paperwork/brochures (papers not filled out), and the watch comes fresh from the family of the original owner from Canada.
