A rare, early Rolex Submariner estimated to be worth between £40,000 – £60,000 is to go under the hammer at a Fellows auction this month.
According to Fellows the “fascinating timepiece” was one of the first models worn by Sean Connery’s 007 in early James Bond films, such as Dr. No. This particular Submariner was introduced in 1958, and it comes with original box and papers, which the group said is unusual for a vintage watch.
Laura Bishop, watch manager at Fellows Auctioneers, said: “We are delighted to be showcasing such a fascinating and rare item. These 6538 models do not come up for sale often so we are very excited to see how the bidding goes.”
