Rolex Submariner 5508 ‘Tropical Dial’

With high probability we can say that this is the most beautiful Submariner we’ve ever had. 

This Submariner carries the famous reference 5508, dates back to the year 1959 and runs on the automatic caliber 1030. It has a small, delicate, stainless steel case with a size of 37 millimeter, which is a bit smaller than we’re familiar with. The watch has a slightly newer ‘7206-stamped’ riveted Oyster bracelet and ’80-stamped’ end links.

Beneath the acrylic crystal we find the gorgeous ‘Swiss only’, ‘Meters first’, ‘Tropical’ gilt dial that has coloured beautifully and almost has the look of a wooden dial. This piece still has its original radium index, as well as its original radium hands.

This beauty may not be the best daily beater around but is definitely one of the best Submariner collectors’ pieces you can get at the moment. So, make you’re move and bring this baby home.
