  • Rarely does our collecting direction turn from the enlightened path that is old Rolex tool watches, but we could make an exception for a 1970 Tudor 7031/0 chronograph with a dial in the condition of this one ! Would we wear it ? No, but we can appreciate it for what is. For fellow geeks ( if you are reading this page, it may be time to face facts ), the movement is a 7734 calibre and the case number is in the 756xxx range.

  • This gilt dial Submariner 5513 from 1965 was sent to us by a client in early 2014 for verification after he purchased it elsewhere.

  • The Submariner 5513 was fitted with a surprisingly large number of different dials through the years, from what are now £50,000+ Explorer dial versions fitted in the early 1960s through standard gilt-dial versions to white text 200m-660ft dials, several white text 660ft-200m variants, highly sought after military issue and Comex issues, finishing with white gold surround indices in the early 1990s and even luminova dial variants available at service to this day. This well-used watch has an especially nice maxi dial with over-size luminous dots, similar to the markers on 5517 mil subs. It was sold by us soon after the millennium and returned for a light glass polish in Summer 2014, still running well.

  • A three-colour exotic or “Paul Newman” dial Daytona 6262/0 is unusual in itself, but when our MD took this one from our special selection personally for service at Rolex in London something even more remarkable transpired. Look at the service notes on the Rolex schedule of works : they describe the dial explicitly as being a “Paul Newman.” This was never Rolex nomenclature and it is quite extraodinary for them to have adopted a name given to a variant by the wider vintage community. We do not know of another such Daytona where the dial has been so irrefutably established as a genuine PN !

  • We don’t know what they were “shmoking” at Geneva when Rolex designed this dial. At least if Daphne from Scooby-Doo ever visits Miltons we will have just the watch dial for her. Apparently, the metal numerals on this dial are made from a unique Rolex alloy, HannaBarbarium.

  • What happens if you place a Rolex warranty card under a UV light ? It’s always worth trying these things. Fake Rolex warranty cards are already available so be careful. If the bad guys can make fake airplane parts and credit cards which get through the relevant systems, a Rolex warranty card is child’s play.

  • In November 2014 Miltons acquired this wonderful Submariner 6536/1 from the late 1950s. It has a low 3xx,xxx case number, original dial and bezel insert, 1030 calibre movement and six service marks from Rolex on the inside of the III.57 case-back. It cost us a five-figure sum but here at Miltons we’re always ready to make the bank transfer, no matter what the size, for a vintage Rolex that floats our boat. The bezel looks to be in a perilous state, but in fact this red triangle version with no hash-marks up to 15 is a rare, original survivor from this batch and represents a major part of the watch’s value.

  • In December 2010, just before two years of significant price rises, Miltons spent £168,000 in a single day buying over 60 unworn, stickered Rolex watches including Sea Dwellers 16600s, stainless steel Date Submariner 16610s, Yachtmaster 16622s, Explorers 14270 / 114270 / 16570 and others. Oddly, all the watches lacked bracelets. The story was that HMRC had intercepted the watches being smuggled into the UK in parts; Customs had seized the watch-heads and ultimately auctioned them off in a single sale to an audience of international dealers and private buyers in London. Miltons were the largest buyer by far and took home over a third of the entire sale. With the blessing of Rolex UK we were then able to purchase all the new, genuine bracelets required to make the watches complete, but for another £40,000+! The watches all sold some time ago and we fear that such an opportunity may never arise again.

  • Rolex collectors across the world are aware that Miltons have purchased and handled an extraordinary number of military issue Rolex Submariners, out of the original, mere 1,000 or so which were supplied to Royal Navy Clearance Divers, helicopter pilots and others in the 1970s. These watches are now so valuable that some will try to make a plain, civilian Submariner look like one of the genuine “mil subs.” Small details can be very hard to fake, though. This photograph shows the case-back of a genuine mil sub with its NATO coding and a conspicuous rippling effect in the metal. The rippling has been caused by decades of the nylon webbing strap rubbing slightly across the case-back, perhaps helped by the constant presence of salts and sand in its typical environment. It is galling now to think that so many of these issued, historical watches were sold off by the MOD over twenty years ago for as little as £50 each, whereupon dealers often butchered them to make them more like the normal, civilian Submariners.

Still has sticker on the case-back and comes with special Breitling box set, instructions, slide rule calculator & booklet, uniquely-numbered 50-year leaflet, chronometer certificate and UK warranty booklet dated March 2013. The list price NEW is £6,060 ! Please note that the Navitimer is NOT water-proof for swimming etc. This rare watch is one of just 1962 made to commemorate 50 years since a Navitimer Cosmonaute became the first chronograph in space, strapped to the wrist of Scott Carpenter on the Mercury Aurora 7 mission. This is a serious “geek-piece,” as our colleagues would say, being manually wound and featuring a 24 hour dial ( hands rotate once rather than twice per day ). This is a feature some will find awkward, but others will treasure for its significance to a piece celebrating space flight. The NEW RRP was £6,060 ! Please ask for our Breitling specialists, Phil Ellison and Paul Aspinall, to demonstrate this watch to you at our Liverpool / St. John's store.

  • This is an especially nice example of the acrylic-glass Date Submariner model 1680/0 with 1575 calibre movement. It came from a former helicopter pilot and retains its original boxes and numbered papers. Full sets like this are always priced at a premium in the vintage market, but we think a great watch should never be turned down simply because a previous owner did not keep his box or documents for 40 years as, fortunately, this gentleman did.

  • The 1960s and 1970s were a period of diving innovation, with the move to saturation diving to meet the demands of the oil industry in places like the North Sea. British divers often led the way and a generation of them trained in the Royal Navy, qualified as members of the legendary Clearance Divers and then moved on to work for the specialist diving company Comex. While they would often be issued with a watch to use during service, some preferred to buy their own. This rare “Double Red” Sea-Dweller model 1665 was one such watch, bought by a former RN Clearance Diver while later diving commercially. The lives of these modest men were remarkable and we owe much to them and their many lost colleagues. It is always a privilege to meet such divers, to hear or read their stories and perhaps buy their trusty old watch from them!

  • While any Submariner 5513 is usually worth a few thousand pounds, one like this on our hirsute MD’s wrist a few years ago can be worth over ten times as much. The “Explorer-dial” Submariners are those made with the unusual “3 – 6 – 9” dial format similar to those more commonly seen on plain Explorer models. Earlier Submariners than this could be found with them, but 5512 and 5513 variants from the early 1960s era are especially favoured by many. There were in fact several versions of the Explorer dial during the short period of production and this one, with its uncalibrated depth rating, has become widely recognised only in the last few years. This particular watch was subsequently sold at auction.

  • The Orange Hand Explorer II model 1655 is something of an oddity, but its rarity has made it collectible in modern times. This typically well-worn example appears to retain its original bezel; note that the seconds hand, unlike the other example shown on this page, is the later all-white version with high visibility dot. The model has at times been called the “Steve McQueen” as it was rumoured that the famous actor had one, but this has never been substantiated and the apparent misnomer is heard less and less these days. For what it is worth, the star appears to have had a Submariner 5512 and perhaps a TAG chronograph.

  • In the late 1960s Rolex added a date display to the steel Submariner, with the new model 1680/0. For the first few years the word SUBMARINER was written in red and these models are especially sought after now. Do be careful, as the difference in value has tempted many to try to turn a genuine watch with an all-white text dial into one with the precious red text. Note that this genuine example ( which is in need of a new acrylic glass ) has the 660ft = 200m format of depth rating. An even earlier version with red text and the reverse 200m=660ft depth rating is worth more again.

  • This well-used Submariner 5513 from the 1960s is especially nice for retaining its original gilt-text dial, rather than having one of the later white-text versions. Note the depth rating, presented in metres before feet on the early examples like this. The 5513 was launched in 1962 and remained in production with little change for 30 years. Roger Moore would wear one in his first outing as 007 in “Live and Let Die,” but for real-life professionals including the UK’s pioneering Royal Navy Clearance Divers the watch would prove a genuine, reliable workhorse.
