€40.000 EUR

Since the appearance of the 1st Submariner at the Basel Fair in 1954, the 5508 is the 6th evolution of the model and the last Submariner produced without a protective shoulder.

Review. Heir to the famous 6538, the legendary James Bond watch worn by Sean Connery in his role as secret agent 007 in 1962 in the film James Bond against Dr. No in 1962 date of fabrication of our model !

The Rolex Submariner 5508 succeeds the 6536 when it first appeared in 1957. 

The sporty and professional aesthetic of the 5508, necessary for the use of the instrument for the time, is accentuated by its graduated bezel and an all-steel production. But times and fashions vary.

Thus, today, this model is sought after for its chic vintage side and its rarity. At the time of its marketing, this Submariner was initially equipped with a black lacquered dial and gold hands. It was then offered with a matte dial. Moreover, at that time the dial of the 5508 was declined in a large number of variants in terms of markings :

Gold markings; gold and white; golden and red; white; exclamation at 6 o'clock or not; one, two or even three lines of text.

The model we offer has one of the most sought-after dial configurations: the dial says 4 lines. The production of this diver's watch was will stop in 1961 to make way for the Submariner 5512. The 5508 is the last Submariner offered by Rolex with water resistance to 100m and an unshouldered crown, hence its nickname "Small Crown".
