Why We Love it

Why We Love It

The KING of Submariners - the 'Big Crown' Reference 6538.

Viewed by collectors worldwide as the holy grail of Submariner collecting, Big Subs tend to be end-game watches for enthusiasts. 

Unfortunately for most of us, they usually come with eye-watering --if not downright unattainable -- price tags. Recent examples of the top tier have commanded seven figures at auction. This example, while genuine, doesn't come close. 

Fitted with a very early matte tritium service dial with chapter ring, service handset, a 'Big Triangle' tribute bezel insert and sporting a nice case refresh and a slightly later riveted Oyster bracelet, this piece has  all the style at a fraction of the price of an untouched example.

In short, its wearable, usable, and just plain awesome. Drop us a line to learn more!

The Story

The Rolex Submariner commands respect. It’s a watch with a story, guts, beauty, and an indisputable pedigree that few other watches can claim. Whether one loves it or not, it’s the world’s most iconic sports watch, and it demands (and deserves) a place in any collection, vintage or modern.

There is no doubt that the model is ubiquitous, but what’s so enduring about its appeal is that there’s a model of Submariner for anyone. Its long run (sixty-three years and counting) produced many references, and though every execution shares some similarities with its forebears, each model is very much a watch of its own, with its own character and charm. Date or no-date, big crown or small—there’s a Submariner for all.
