With its large winding crown without crown guards, this is one of the rarest "Submariner" variations. Reference 5510 was produced for only a very short period of time and it is believed that less than 300 examples were manufactured.
This Submariner combines various features that every vintage Rolex collector desires. It has a black gilt dial, that has slightly changed its colour over time, creating a beautiful symphony of dappled shades. The charmingly aged toffee-coloured luminous indexes and Mercedes hands add to its overall pleasant appeal. The black bezel has an ultra-rare inlay with a red triangle, a missing pearl and a "Big Logo" Rolex bracelet, which is particularly beloved by collectors today.
