Abel Finds His Grail Rolex!!!

Abel Finds His Grail Rolex!!!
1959 Rolex Submariner [Reference 5508] 37mm

Abel is from Buenos Aires, Argentina and he has been a big fan of Jake's Rolex Watch Blog for a long time now. As a matter of fact I dedicated the Mocha GMT story to him because he has been such a great fan.

Abel recieved his first Rolex (Submariner) from his parents when he was 18 as a high school graduation present–and that was 42 years ago!!! Abel wrote in originally and shared a great story about how he had been a big fan of the I Spy TV show which stared Bill Cosby and Robert Culp and Abel used to be fascinated with their Rolex Pepsi GMTs.

Ever since, Abel has been in love with the Rolex brand but he always had his Grail Rolex he wanted and after all these years he finally got it!!! It is a "No Crown Guard" James Bond Submariner. Abel sent in these photos of his fantastic new grail watch to share with you. On behalf of all the readers of Jake's Rolex Watch Blog, I would like to congratulate you Abel and extend our best wishes that you wear your Grail Rolex Well!!!!

Thanks for sharing!!!

Abel shot his DEEPSEA SEA-DWELLER next to its great grandfather.
