Comments

Very few armed forces throughout the world, ordered watches directly from Rolex, to be issued to their elite members. It will remain a mystery why the small Peruvian Air Force had several models special ordered to be engraved FAP and issue numbers on the backs. While all FAP Rolex are rare, the red submariner is probably the rarest model. This model is in excellent original condition and comes directly from the family of the first owner in Lima.
