Rolex Vintage Submariner Transitional Model

Date: 3rd Dec 2018
Was 8,995.00
Code: 20500S
Manufacturer Code: 5513

True vintage style never fades, as this Rolex Submariner Non-Date from the late 1980's proves with one glance. Featuring exceptional provenance and presentation, with full complement of Rolex booklets from that era, with original stamped warranty certificate, green Rolex document holder and inner and outer presentation boxes, it has to be stated that these are all in pristine condition, and this piece has clearly been very well looked after over the years.

A must-see from vintage Rolex fans, this Submariner features a black tritium dial, with dot hour markers, with a stainless steel case and link bracelet, with pin-hole shoulders. Originally purchased through Michael Jones jewellers of Northampton UK in November 1989.

A charismatic vintage Rolex, showcasing the truly timeless and exceptional attention to detail that Rolex is known for across the world. This is a very collectible and sought after transitional dial model.

The original case and bracelet have been sympathetically polished only, to retain the heritage and charming vintage patina that this watch has achieved over the years.

Dear Dee, Please accept my apologies for having taken so long to acknowledge receipt of the Rolex GMT that I found on line and then spoke to you on the telephone from the Isle of Man before purchasing. I received it on Tuesday of last week. Although thrilled I was nervous having spent rather a large amount of money using only pictures and verbal assurance. I waited until the evening when all was done and calm to open the parcel. I was thrilled with what I saw. The watch was running and the time was correct so I inspected it, placed it on my wrist and read through the enclosed paperwork. It was like welcoming an old friend back into the fold. I have worn it every day since receipt and smile every time I check the time or use the bezel. I am so very glad that ‘Island Fever’ got the better of me but more importantly know that I can trust your site and especially your word and guidance. Thank you. I have one or two other watches including a Tudor Pelagos Blue Titanium and had seen some very favourable reviews of the Tudor GMT that had tempted me but I am so very glad that I stuck with what I wanted. When I had my GMT 20+ years ago it was a big watch. It’s a slim-line tonic by todays watches and relatively light. Most importantly to me it is a joy. Very many thanks, Dee and I shall make a point to drop in if/when I get my act together and visit my friend in Chiswick. In the meantime I have to resist your site and continue to enjoy what I have – which is very easy. Very Best Regards, Ian
