For a long time, the Rolex 5512 has been the only diver's watch offered by Rolex with a COSC movement, a detail made evident by the two additional lines of text appearing on the dial below the depth rating.
This improvement made it way more expensive - and, in perspective, rarer nowadays - than its non-COSC sibling ref. 5513.
The present example was manufactured in 1967 and still retains great overall conditions. The dial is a very desirable and sought-after “Meters first”, where we can see the depth indicated as “200 m = 660 ft”.
Another rare detail is that the dial is “gilt”, meaning that the prints are realized using gold paint.
Rare and collectible features, but the wonderful shade of brown that the dial acquired over time (also referred as “tropical”) is a non-replicable and mesmerizing detail.
Given the general desirability of this reference, the amazing shape and incredible (and unique) details of this piece make it a special and rare catch for every collector.
Case: 40mm stainless steel (n° 1.5xx.xxx) Movement: Automatic, cal. 1570, 26 jewels Reference: 5512 - 2 Year: 1967
