The 5512 features a bezel with minute divisions for the first fifteen minutes, silver triangle, and depth rated to 200 mt. This watch is a very special Submariner thanks to its conservation and ageing. The indexes and hands have turned to fascinating, incredibly and totally evenly light yellow, which doesn’t happen very often. The riveted Oyster bracelet with deployant is simply special, the black graduated bezel is fresh and with still very noticeable knurling. The dial is something really difficult to find, as the most careful observers will have noticed, presents the rare characteristic of the “meter first” and the certification of “superlative chronometer officially certified”. Iconic and rare, this watch is a piece of history that speaks and is just waiting to be heard.
