This is a piece of real Rolex history. This Rolex Submariner was bought new in 1962 by the current owner; in fact he received it from his grandmother for his 18th birthday…

In it’s life the watch has been serviced a few times by different Rolex service centers (in North- and South America), and was cleaned and serviced recently when it got a new glass and second hand (the old hand was heavily damaged, but is present).
