Rolex 5512 Meter First Box & Double Papers 1966 - MTH1x875
Very collectible circa 1966 meter first MK1 matte dial Submariner ref 5512 with 143xxxx serial number.
Original matte dial with tritium/zinc-sulphide markers and matching hands which means that when treated with black light, the tritium will still glow for a short while after (Pls see the night pic).
Original Mk3 insert is still in excellent condition.
Watch case has been polished. Dial would rate as near mint if not for some of the missing print of the last two lines of Superlative Officially Certified Chronometer
Case back is correctly marked 5513 and with year IV.65.
Movement has been serviced and is working perfect. It sports a 1560 chronometer rated
movement with matching chronometer papers that corresponds to the movement number.
Set also comes with the original papers stamped 5512 and the year 1966 (sold in 1966).
Original 200m anchor and green tag included. Original period correct Rolex box as well.
Priced just right so don’t bother to lowball.
