This is an incredibly rare "Lollipop" seconds hand for 50's era Submariners including the Rolex 5510, 6538, 6536, 5508, etc. This is a FLAT hand. This part is painted white and the paint appears to be original. This is for caliber 1030. It also fits on Cal 1035, 1060, 1065, 1520 and 1530. This is 100% genuine and made by Rolex in their factory in Switzerland.
Pre-owned but wow, amazing condition considering this is from the late 50's. The white paint appears to be original and it is very good with one or two tiny tiny chips. Hard to see even under a loupe. This would present very well on a top-end submariner from the 50's to very early 60's.
The Rolex BC in the 6538 and 5510 /5508 in the 57 – 59 range enjoy these great big white lollipops seconds hand.
They are a very distinct vintage look.
This is one is Radium version just before tritium.
It was not a standard issue and as with Rolex no particular information other than the obvious visibility that the white seconds hand provides on a dive watch.
It was by no means a standard issue.
This second hand lollipop is very nice with a radium color as yellow, not luminous, not restored.
The white color of this Rolex hand turn off white snow shades.
Condition is used, only hairlines of wear on sides (check carefully pictures) but worked perfectly on cal 1030 and 15xx.
Estimated period year : 1958-1959.
As usual this Rolex part is guaranteed 1OO% Genuine Rolex Factory, not refinished or restored.
