Just Because: A Rolex Submariner Reference 5508 With "Exclamation Point" Dial: ​A 1962 Rolex Submariner referenc...

​The first "Just Because" post of the new HODINKEE is upon us, and we couldn't have picked a cooler watch. You are looking at an absolutely beautiful Rolex Submariner from 1962. Of course, this Submariner pre-dates those silly little things the Submariner is now known for called crown-guards. It is, though, one of the last pre-crown-guard subs and one of the last Subs with this bezel style, complete with a red triangle. What makes this particular examples so great is the perfect patina on the dial and hands, the thickness of the case, and original faded bezel. This is also an example of the 5508 with a rare "Exclamation Point" dial (look at 6 o'clock and you'll see why), which were, according to some experts, onl​y produced in late 1961 and 1962. Just a beautiful old Rolex, don't you think?​
