1972 Royal Navy MOD Sub


Adam at EoT found this incredible-looking Rolex. Looks like something James Bond wore in basic training.

“Large stainless steel case, with brushed case sides, fixed strap bars, screw down Rolex crown, and acrylic crystal. Fitted with the 60 minute marker bezel unique to the military issue Rolex Submariner. Screw case back with military issue markings. Original black dial with luminous dot and baton hour markers, outer minute marks, and signed Rolex Oyster Perpetual, 660ft=200m, Submariner, and Swiss T-25, with a white T in a circle. Original white metal sword hour hand, pencil minute hand, and arrow centre seconds hand. Nickel plated Rolex calibre 1520 movement with hacking seconds (seconds hand stops when the winder is pulled out to allow time synchronisation). The watch is fitted with a NATO-style nylon strap. It is estimated that around 1,250 Rolex Submariner watches (ref. 5513 and 5517) were bought by the British Ministry of Defence and issued up until the late 1970s. Model ref. 5513”
