With attention to detail: The Vintage Rolex Submariner

Vintage is not a short-lived trend but a passion for watchmaking history which is why collectors from all over the world are always on the lookout for rarities. The Submariner series from Rolex is one of the classic divers' watches and features some of the most interesting and sought-after vintage models in the world. An example is the Reference 6538, which accompanied Sean Connery alias James Bond in Doctor No (1962) on his hunt for crooks.

Whether you are looking for Ref. 16610, 5512 or 5513, at CHRONEXT you can buy a wide range of Rolex Submariner Vintage models online at attractive prices. Our 24-month CHRONEXT warranty offers you maximum security and minimum worry with every purchase.

Reference 6538

Ever since Britain's most popular secret agent appeared on screen with his watch in 1962, the Reference 6538 has been one of the most sought-after vintage Rolex Submariner models of all time. The 38-millimetre stainless steel sports watch features Calibre 1030 ticking with the dial and bezel in classic black. The model is extremely rare, and finding it in a well-preserved condition is all the more difficult.

Reference 5512

The Rolex Submariner Vintage Reference 5512 with black bezel and black dial was launched in 1958 and has been manufactured for a total of 20 years. Due to the long production time, this watch is not one of the most exclusive models from Rolex, but the reference has its price. For a well-preserved model of this vintage Submariner, you will pay up to 29,000 Pounds. At CHRONEXT, you can find better offers.

Reference 5513

Similar to the Ref. 5512, the Ref. 5513 was produced for a long time, even by Rolex standards. Available on the market from 1962 to 1989, the two Submariner Vintage models are similar in appearance down to a particular detail. In addition to the classic stainless steel Oyster bracelet, the Rolex 5513 is also available in a sporty version with a leather strap. Depending on condition and design the price varies between 12,000 and 17,000 Pounds. Make a deal with CHRONEXT and our team will be happy to advise you on your available financing options.

The CHRONEXT Vintage Guide

When does a watch become "vintage"?

There is no clear definition as to when a watch is categorised as "vintage". Basically, it can be said that time plays a decisive role in the evaluation. Specialists usually orientate themselves by the age of a model. At CHRONEXT, every watch that is older than 20 years is considered vintage.

What should be considered when buying a vintage watch?

1) Trustworthy dealers

If you are interested in purchasing a Rolex Submariner vintage watch, you can avoid the risk of replicas by contacting trusted dealers such as CHRONEXT. Our experts are both watch enthusiasts and specialists. Thanks to our many years of experience and know-how, we can assure you of the authenticity and quality of every watch sold. This is further guaranteed by our 24-month CHRONEXT warranty.

2) Original condition

From fading to patina: The original condition of a watch is honoured by collectors. It is not important whether the desired vintage watch is in perfect condition. Much more interesting is the question of whether elements such as the dial, hands and crown had to be replaced. Spare parts give a vintage model such as the Rolex Submariner a new shine but reduce its value.

3) Adding value: Watch box & manufacturer's papers

Watch box and manufacturer's papers have a price-increasing effect on a vintage model. However, this does not mean that you have to avoid vintage watches without papers and box. In order to guarantee the authenticity and quality of your timepiece in the absence of such documents, our certified watchmakers work in our in-house master workshop every day. We check every model extensively and provide it with our 24-month CHRONEXT warranty for maximum safety.
