The 6536 replaced the 6205 using the new 1030 calibre.There were a number of Submariners for sale at the same time and were offering the choice of a professional divers watch  at 200meter or a slimmer version for the non professional at 100meters.

The 6536 fits the category of the slimmer 100 meter watch -1 after 6536 indicates it has been graded as a Chronometer.

The Gloss Gilt Dial Radium has aged beautifully,the closed minute track dates the watch to 1955,faint but visible with a loop and written above submariner is 100m=330ft.The hour,minute and sweep hand are also original to the dial and period.The bezel has aged with time and has faded to a light grey. The case is free of dents, scratches and corrosion. The movement hasnt seen alot of servicing,the bridges and plates shine like new. Marked inside the case back is 6536/1 III.57.

The watch comes ready to wear on a folded s/s Rolex genuine bracelet number 7836.

I also have another 6536 for sale compare the two,the other has been fitted with a new dial,hands and bezel insert.
