Steve McQueen's Rolex Submariner (Ref. 5512)

By TLex An interesting read below about Steve McQueen's Rolex Submariner . . .



From Antiquorum Antiquorum experts will be offering Steve McQueen's Rolex, Ref. 5512 Submariner produced in 1967.

The timepiece is a fine, center seconds, self-winding, water-resistant, stainless steel diver’s wristwatch.
The watch was given by Steve McQueen to his good friend Jimmy Brucker in early 1980, to whom he also subsequently willed his airplane hangar at the Santa Paula Airport where he had stored his airplane, bikes and an extensive memorabilia collection.

Most of the other items that had been given to Brucker have been auctioned, so this lot remains one of the few items that Jimmy Brucker received from Steve McQueen and kept. Estimate $10,000 - $20,000
