Evening Gents. I got my 5508 Submariner head back from service and was glad to see that all my lume is still intact. It is very scary to have the watch opened and possibly have some lume disturbed since under magnification I see it is 100% intact on the plots.
The caseback says III 59
Hope everyone has a great weekend I think I will have a James Bond marathon although this isn't the exact reference it does have the look.

Mine is chipped, worn and missing the rim in a few spots.

hi buddy, you should try placing a WTB advert here in the Vintage Market.
I'm sure there's a few guys here who might be able to help you out.

Enjoy that beauty
cheers
Pete

Very nice. You need an original domed 16 next.

I have one NOS condition but I have a silly idea that I should save it for some reason.
