Rolex Submariner 5510, caliber 1530, 1958, 60,000CHF-80,000CHF, considered the rarest of the Big Crowns as it was only produced for one year and there are believed to have only been 300-600 ever made Lot 114.
The much anticipated Phillips “Geneva Watch Auction: One” takes place this Sunday. And for this article, we selected four of the most uncommon Rolexes from the upcoming sale — excluding the Daytonas — which we already know can exceed a million Swiss francs.
Here is the list: 1- 6452 GMT-Master with Bakelite bezel, 2- Submariner 5510 Big Crown, 3- Submariner 5513 with Explorer underline dial 4- 6541 Milgauss with honeycomb dial and “lightning bolt” hand.
In total, these four Rolexes are expected to fetch between 340,000 CHF to 610,000 CHF. That’s a huge range, but considering the auctioneer is Aurel Bacs – the sky’s the limit.
