This is one of two submariner wristwatches (lots 212 and 213) given to Stanley Sayer by Rolex and has been in the family since. Stanley Sayer was a film cameraman working for Technicolour, he set up a special effects company, and also worked on several film sets including Superman and Star Wars. He was a keen diver and inventor of the minisub. The minisub enabled divers to move underwater effortlessly, steer a course and to light their way ahead. Although he himself did not patent the design, it attracted widespread interest.Around 1959 Rolex were interested in using Stanley and his machine in their advertising portfolio and took a number of photos with him in action wearing one of their watches for publication. In payment for his services, he was invited to keep the watch that he wore in the press shoot (lot 212) and also given a second Submariner (lot 213), which he then gave to his son in 1961.He wore the watch daily until he passed in April 2000. The watches have been consigned by his son.  Please note, additional images are from the British Sub Aqua Club.Condition reports are offered as a guide only and we highly recommend that you inspect any lot to satisfy yourself as to its condition.Plymouth Auction Rooms do not guarantee the working order or accuracy of any watches sold. Please refer to clause 15 on our terms of business.
