|Oyster Perpetual Submariner
|WRIST ICONS watch pouch if ordered at WRIST ICONS
We are proud to present a really gorgeous tropical Submariner from 1957. Rolex introduced the Submariner in 1953, so this is a really early one with a very nice brown dial. The glossy gilt dial with radium hour markers is completely original and untouched (NO repaint NO relume) and has turned completely tropical with really nice different shades of brown. It looks completely similar as the example in the Mondani book; so get yourself the textbook example!
Rolex introduced the Submariner in 1953. Two years later they came with 6536-1 reference which was sold until 1959. It’s a really nice clean Submariner model with its thin case and its small crown. With the later 5508 reference, collectors call these the small crown Subs due to the small 6mm size of the crown and the thin case without crown guards. The case and lugs are thinner than the later models and the case and back are stamped 6536/1 and III.57 (meaning 3th quarter of 1957). The 6536-1 has gilt Mercedes hands powered by the early cal. 1030 movement with butterfly rotor.
So this is is the quintessential pure sleek looking Submariner. Tudor has introduced the Black bay with a similar kind of look.
This particular watch has just undergone a full service. This work was carried out by our Rolex authorized watchmaker using Rolex parts. This stunning example of the Rolex Submariner 6536-1 reference comes with a very nice tropical brown gilt dial. The dial has a beautifully even gloss black paint with uniform caramel brown patina, and full and intact lume plots with an excellent matching hand set. Comes with a dome plexi crystal, under which the dial markers are warm and creamy with sharp and bold gilt text, a truly original and well preserved dial that classes this example in the premium range for condition.
If you’re looking for an honest and no questions example, this is it, a true rarity as these rarely become available in this condition. Check the high res pics, even more stunning in the flesh, and no disappointments.
Overall, the Rolex Submariner 6536-1 is noteworthy, both for its design and execution. This Rolex Submariner 6536-1 is remarkably well preserved. As with all of our pre-owned watches this watch comes with a full 12 month warranty with ourselves that will be invoked from the day of purchase. If you put it on your wrist, you feel you have locked and Wrist Icon!
