... model ( 4 years into the production of the Sub.) . There's no documentation offered and it looks to have a later model of bracelet. Maybe $10,00.00 tops (w/documentation) but looks like some folks have gotten caught with "auction fever" .

that's a lot of $$$ for the condition and extras. A collector may get aggressive on price for a model like this but those guys like to buy through antiquorum where the condition is clearly stated and service records and such are provided..




I'll live with my forthcoming MKII Kingston... $700-800 invested.

There is another from 1978 and it's at $6100 and I thought that was a little high as well, but this one has passed ridiculous.

But I wouldn't bet on it. I'm tracking it, and saved the seller, so we'll see what kind of feedback he leaves.

.... even THINK about looking on the 'bay !! As much as we all want a "deal" this is one brand that you HAVE to do your homework with and when you find what you are looking for, you usually will have to pay around market value for it. (that's reputable market, NOT the 'bay). By dealing with reputeable dealers and collectors, you will increase your percentages of getting the real thing and in the condition you want. Right now, in this market, the handwind models from the 60s/70s in either SS or 18k cases are to be found in good condition in the $1,00.00 and under range. The Subs will ALWAYS bring much, much more. If you don't mind a 34/35mm cased watch on a strap, you can get these readily and have a VERY GOOD all around watch JMHO

... I bought this one from a dealer in London last year for LESS than $10k (with all taxes and duties and shipg.) .
It came with original sales ticket and service records for it as well as the dealer had clear pics of it as you can see. It is a 5513 cal from 1967 and has been working flawlessly from day one. From it's records, it had been serviced by Rolex in London in 2002 so should go for several more years with no problem.

with price tag..not sure of vintage but 1990s? I have kept the photo for references only haha!..googling seems to show the price is average listed for this model. Michael's 1960s Nam model versions are selling around $4-6000 on eBay.

in his 90s??? adding one too many zeros? ....just wondering...He obviously is a WIS from his description vocabulary....

Just looked at the bidders list. The owner started at $10.usd ( a common bid trick to start the ball rolling). It soon escalated past $10,000. A bidding war started between 2 bidders pushing the bid past $30,000usd....serious guys!!!!
