When it comes to Maxi dial Submariners the 5512 MK1 is the Maxi King. The production of these was very low and there aren't many around. The watch offered here has been loved and worn, shows the character of a real tool watch with some overall wear but still retained in nice condition. The four liner dial has very whitish and large lumes which are highlighted through the original Dome crystal. The bracelet is matching with the case and shows that it has been on the wrist rather than safe kept in the safe. The bezel on this watch is awesome, has aged to a near perfect gunmetal grey. A great tool watch for every day and don't underestimate the rarity of a MK1 Maxi dial, they don't show up much.
