And from the SN Database:

SN:489259 III 1959 Submariner No crown guard 5508 #1530 mvmt #77565 black (faded) dial, gilt lettering and minutes track, steel mercedes hands, "Rolex" "Oyster Perpetual", "100m = 330ft" (in white lettering) "Submariner" , "Swiss" with lume dot below 6 marker

1962 Submariner No crown guard 5508 #1530 mvmt 26 jewels #92195, non-butterfly rotor, black dial, gilt(?) lettering (could be white), outer minute ring, outlines around luminous markers, steel mercedes hands, "Rolex" "Oyster Perpetual", "100m = 330ft" (in silver or lighter colored print), "Submariner", lume dot on tick mark below 6 marker, pictures do not show below 6 marker--from eBay auction w/pictures of caseback, sold by MrRolex

Small sample, I know, but interesting nonetheless.

P.S. Alas, no 6542s with Ex Point in our records!
