Just Because: The Fugliest Rolex Submariner 5512 On Earth

by on Oct.28, 2010, under Review

Fugly is right. This thing is a waste of a rolex. It kinda looks like someone with too much money came across a beedazzler and went to town on their spare watch. You really need to check this thing out. I can respect those brave enough to try something new and ride the line between flashy and hidious but this is outright crazy.  Check this out and make your comments from the peanut gallery.

Somewhere, Steve McQueen is rolling in his grave.

The Reference 5512 Submariner has always enjoyed a certain quiet masculinity as the other Submariner.  You see 5513′s everywhere, but a 5512, a good one at that, is pretty hard to track down (not that we haven’t done it, of course).

Today we’re here to show you what is, without a doubt, the ugliest, most offensive Rolex Ref 5512 ever concocted on this here planet we call earth.

The Rolex you see to the right is indeed an authentic Ref 5512 – it’s just been modified beyond any form of recognition.  To be specific it has: a custom gold band, a custom diamond bezel, 8 diamonds on the inside of the watch, 4 gold nuggets and custom hands.  Oh, and of course, no soul.

This monster has been in one man’s family for over 30 years (not kidding) and the seller’s grandfather apparently won it, although he doesn’t say for doing what – we have our own guesses. It is currently listed at $9,000 OBO on eBay.

Click here for details, if you dare.  PS – Notice the seller’s name? Yup, he’s not kidding.
