Goldfinger - this stunning Rolex Submariner takes our breath away. Rolex Sports models in Gold have become quite strong in the past years with some even saying 'Gold is the new Steel'. This solid 18K Submariner from 1991 feel so good on the wrist, the weight is enormous so nothing for weak wrists. It is among the best examples we have ever seen in completely untouched and unrestored condition with an unpolished and a razor sharp case and bracelet. The lugs are well defined and still show the beautiful factory bevels. The previous owner owned it for a year after he had bought it in unworn NOS condition. He sparingly wore the watch a few times and tucked it back in the box, apart from very light hairlines the watch is literally new with zero stretch showing on the bracelet. To sweeten what you have just read, this watch comes with its original wooden box and carton and also with the punched, stamped and dated certificate from 1992 when it was initially sold in Spain.

Released in 1954 at the Basel Watch Fair, the Submariner was the first watch to be water-resistant to 100m. The most recognizable watch in the Rolex line-up. The Submariner is characterized by its iconic black dial and diving bezel. A tool watch with a strong Rolex DNA, the Submariner is not only the most iconic Rolex, but probably the most iconic watch of all time.
