A rare Rolex watch has emerged for sale for £150,000 - despite being damaged.<br />
<br />
The 1958 Rolex Oyster Perpetual 'Big Crown' Submariner has badly scratched glass, surface marks on its hands and a loose bezel.<br />
<br />
It is so valuable because it still has its original 3-6-9 Explorer dial which was produced in very small number during the late 1950s and early '60s. <br />
<br />
The majority of dials would have been replaced when they were serviced in the intervening six decades, so finding a timepiece with an original dial is the holy grail for collectors.
