Rolex Submariner 5512 two liner 1961

Rolex Submariner 5512 gilt from 1961, a very early “two liner”  with minute tracking and exclamation dial plus tritium hands and the pointed crown guards-guards (PCG). This watch has been a gift to Dutch swim champion Herman Willemse in the early 1960’s – as seen on the postcard issued by Rolex. The watch was given to him for certain swimming goals. The original post card and a book about Mr. Willemse are also included. The case is so fat, perhaps even unpolished? Dial is certainly stained and used but this is pretty normal for a watch that is 57 years old and which has been a lot in the water. A lot of vintage Subs has been tempered with, not this one. Bracelet is a rivit Oyster from a later date.
