This is an excellent example of a 1950s Rolex Submariner reference 6538 known as the big crown "James Bond." This James Bond Submariner is in excellent condition with a very sharp case, beautiful original glossy dial, original bezel insert, and a very tight original Rolex oyster band. The case not been polished. The original dial is in excellent condition with its original gloss but does have some lacquer crazing. There were several variations of the reference 6538 and this particular one is highly desirable with the chronometer movement and four rows of writing on the bottom half of the dial. There is a huge following for Rolex James Bond submariners and to find nice examples available for sale today has become a challenging task as many of these watches were ruined from use and many are in collections.
