To some, this is just a Submariner, but to those that collect vintage Rolex, it’s a Mark II Red Submariner with a meters first dial. In comparison to the earlier Mark I variant (which is also meters first), the Mark II dial is characterized by thinner white text along with a bolder line of red text. The printed depth rating is the main source of change, with open sixes in “660,” and a taller, redesigned “f” to follow. As you’d expect, the best way to get familiar with all the different dials is to handle as many examples as you can, and if there’s one thing to be learned from doing so, it’s that this example is the cream of the crop.
