Owned this watch since 2 years ago and this is one of the only few watches that until this day, I am truly enjoying it. Certainly not a good choice of watch to merely read the time; as I am always admiring its beauty, be it the dial or the superdome xtal, I cannot focus. If I have to choose only 1 watch (without any consideration to monetary value) to wear for the rest of my life for some reason, this 5512 will be the top in my list.

There is every reason why the Sub is arguable the icon for Rolex, hard to debate really.


Enjoying an afternoon of sun and took these pictures just for fun:

Noticed that the slightly lighter patina on the 12, 3, 6, 9 markers versus the rest of the slightly darker patina round shaped lume? Interesting how different shaped lume influence the aging process.

Not the most expensive Rolex Sub, not the rarest, not even close, but just a watch I love alot.

Happy Watch Hunting!
