The Rarest Rolex Submariner Big Crown of them all!
The History of the Rolex Big Crown Heritage with Ultra Rare Red OCC Ref 6538 Explorer 369 dialed BC. The extra fat bevel on the side of the ref 6538 case, we only see at these earlier vintage Rolex Big Crowns till 1957, then the case design changed, bevel became less obvious. I can show you some more additional pictures of the rarest Submariner we’ve found yet. The unmolested condition it still has, is really mind-blowing, see yourself…….
I love the spidered glass, due to the radium lume dust bouncing almost 60 years to the inside, making it look “Iced” and very original! 😉
