1962 Rolex Submariner 5508 with Rolex Papers from Hong Kong


“Tropical Amber ”

Case: Thick and sharp case with the factory profile intact. The case shows some wear from age. The bezel has faded to a medium grey tone and shows light wear from use.

Dial: Glossy gilt dial that has aged to a gradiated amber tropical patina. The lume has aged to a warm creamy hue and the minute and hour hands are matching. The second hands has aged to a dark brown hue. All lume glows at the same rate when exposed to UV light.

Bracelet: The newer 12 link USA rivet bracelet is excellent with light stretch for its age. The clasp is stamped with a 1970 date code.

Accessories: Hong Kong Papers

Notes: While this dial looks great under any lighting condition, it really explodes with color when it's out in the sun.
