The Swiss Watch Co UK Ltd offers this rare example of a Rolex Vintage Submariner.

Very rare to find with the meters first followed by depth in feet, featuring the world-class craftsmanship that Rolex is so famous for, this vintage watch features an all-original black matte dial with applied luminous hour markers and railed dial edge, the hands and hour markers have built up a nice patina which only adds to this incredible watch.

On the dial, the "L" in Rolex lines up underneath the coronet which is one of the telltale signs of a meters first dial along with "Swiss-T<25" at the bottom of the dial covering 5-minute hash marks. The watch features a stainless steel 40mm case, oyster bracelet with a brushed and polished finish and original period correct bezel and bezel insert with luminous pip.

Originally purchased in Circa 1968, the watch comes in Good condition for its age with all the marks and blemishes remaining present. The watch comes with a green Rolex felt pouch, recent 2019 receipt from Rolex UK and SWC authenticity card.

Just like to say thanks to John, Tim and Dee for today. My pride and joy in my watch collection are my 2012 stainless Daytona and 2014 SD4K but I felt it was time to upgrade my daily wearer which was a Tag Heuer Link Chrono Automatic. Found a lovely 2017 Carrera Calibre 16 Fangio Edition on their site. At first all my communication was with Tim who was very patient with me and all my emails. He offered me £700 for my Link in part ex for the Carrera, which I deliberated over for a day or so but thought this was a good offer on a watch that I’ve had 10 years and worn almost every day. We agreed the deal via email and I drove from Bristol to Chiswick today. I have never bought from a used watch dealer so was a bit apprehensive. When I got there I was greeted by Dee who took me in to meet John. The service I got was brilliant, really nice people and it doesn’t matter if your spending £1000 or £50,000 they make you feel your custom is equally valued. When John bought the Carrera out I was blown away by the condition, you could have put it in goldsmiths window as brand new!!! Ok, I traded in my old watch but I feel like I’ve only paid £1600 for a watch that was £3250 two years ago, an absolute bargain. I will definitely deal with these guys again, fantastic service Thanks again guys Colin Colin Smith Bristol
