Great submariner. What always turns me off them (not that I can afford one) is they are everywhere, but having the faded hands and lume sets this out from the rest.

Best place to shift a watch with no box etc? Got this same model but with a stainless steel strap

Also how much price cut from the ongoing rate should I expect for the lack of box and paper?

thanks! thats why I just have vintage watches because every piece is unique. best afordable sub imho is the 16610 or 14060. not so bulky like the 6 digit ref ones

Yeah in fairness that 5512 is a beaut, lots of character developed as it has aged

Always look strange on the right hand to me. But, yes, like them both.

Watchgecko has decent straps, vintage canvas ones are nice.

Bulang and Sons if you're feeling spendy.

These are really nice mate. A lot of people put them up there with the Omega ones. I love mine. No fraying at all after 2 years….
