>>>A few photos of the latest addition to the collection...

...my watch collection of course! :rocks:

I picked up this vintage 1972 Rolex Submariner - a very rare variant with red lettering on the dial. They are very hard to come by, so even though the watch was in poor condition when I bought it, I was able to do a complete restoration. Like?

I've had one...very nice, but I actually prefer the white. It's more legible, and Rolex makes compartively fewer white dial watches.

Red Subs are bringing rediculously high prices these days....8k isn't unheard of. Double Red Sea-Dwellers are bringing over 20k.

I actually just did a 2 part article series on the restoration project. Here's the "before" picture of what the watch looked like when I first bought it:



And the "after" photo once all the work was done:



You can read the articles on my Rolex site, www.rolexreferencepage.com - they're marked "new."

Much less, and far more quickly than it would cost most other people - I'm "in the business."
