original Submariner 6538 James Bond 4 Liner ( very rare ) Big Crown from 1956 with box .

"Manufactured between 1954 and 1959, this watch has a special place in history, as it is considered the original 'James Bond/007' Submariner, worn by Sean Connery in several films."

"Perfecting the Submariner !!!

In the years following the release of the Submariner, Rolex felt that the watch could be improved a bit further. Further, revised versions of the watch appeared. The greatest evolution came with the development of the chronometer-certified and revolutionary Rolex Calibre 1030, which was used in the 6538 and 6536 references. Also, a milestone in the history of this watch was its appearance in "James Bond - Dr. No," which was instrumental in the 6538's success story."
