In 2014 we were very pleased to add this late 1950s Rolex Submariner to Miltons’ special selection. The diver’s model had been evolving quickly since its launch in 1954 and this 5508 version featured the 1530 calibre movement which would then be used in many models for several decades. The 5508 Submariner itself was inevitably destined for a short life and its small winding crown / lack of crown guards would both be addressed in the 5512 of 1959 and the non-chronometer 5513 of 1962. The dial seen here is a Rolex service dial fitted over 20 years ago; the original would have featured gilt (gold colour) text.
