SERPICO Y LAINo PCG 5513
Original swiss only gilt dial is double signed by the famed Venezuelan retailer, "Serpico Y Laino." The dial has aged evenly throughout. Part of the white swiss below 6 o'clock has chipped off. The original hands match perfectly and have the unusual long hour hand. The SYL signature is absolutely guaranteed to be original to the dial.
Excellent pointed crown guard case shows average wear throughout, but the lugs remain thick with great beveled edges. Original crystal, crown and rare early slim 4 bezel insert in excellent condition.
Custom black leather strap with Rolex steel buckle.
Double signed early gilt submariners are extremely rare. SYL gilt subs are among the rarest. Serpico was the Tiffany's of South America, but always maintained a sexier feel, thus making this watch a must have for any serious submariner collector.
