Usually, the simple solution is the best one. This reference 5512 four line Submariner, defined by the four lines of text at the bottom of the dial, is a solid workhorse with great patina. I was lucky to pick this up from the original owner who used and wore this as the tool watch it intended. Not having a date on a non-quickset Rolex, is actually a luxury—especially when you don’t wear the watch everyday.
Finding an untouched, one owner example with great patina, on a strap from the one and only Nick Gabarro is most definitely GMS.
