With copy of Rolex Geneva invoice dated 13 June 2008 for the total overhaul of the present watch. It is understood that the Rolex workshops replaced worn parts of the movement with matching pieces of the younger production.
The present watch is not only one of the earliest examples of reference 5512, but also a very attractive specimen featuring a black lacquer dial with gilt printing and the designation "Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified" printed in white underneath the gilt "Submariner". It is furthermore fitted with the pointed crown guards whereas subsequently produced ref. 5512 models show the rounded shoulders. For this reason, the present model is also known as the "Cornino", meaning "small horn" Submariner.
