1954 Rolex Submariner 6205 | Very Rare and Well Preserved

There are rare watches and there is the 6205, that was only made for one year 1954, the same year the very first submariner was released the model 6204. Finding a 6205 in this condition, a full spec example as delivered new is an absolute dream to any collector. The bezel and insert are in incredibly good condition and show no signs of wear on the edge like these pre-5512 bezel Submariners get. The original bracelet that came on the watch is an important piece in and of itself. It is dated 3/54 designating the third quarter of 1954. It shows no signs of stretch and all of the elastic links function perfectly. I would consider this a transition watch since the 6205 was the first submariner to have the word submariner written on the dial and this a watch that was prior to that designation. It is also the first submariner along with the 6200 to use Mercedes hands. While this example has the 6200 hour hand it has the earlier seconds and perhaps the most interesting and desirable feature about this watch is it’s unique minute hand that I’ve never seen before or in any literature. Examining it in comparison to the other hands it is clear that it is 100% original to the watch and it is really really stunning.
