Exceedingly rare 5512 4 line two color gilt submariner with pointed crown guard case.  This variant was only produced for a very short run in the early 60s.  This particular example has a dial that while still very glossy has the appearance of an old oil painting with various small areas of aging  –  The aged gilt hands also match nicely. The case was recently refinished and exhibits sharp bevels.  The serial and reference number are worn however can be seen under magnification.  The original skinny4 insert is in excellent condition and the bracelet is the original 7206 rivet band with 12 links.  The movement is running strong and keeping excellent time.
