Watch details

This is an incredible Rolex Submariner reference 5513 from the 1970s. It is a real time capsule in close to new old stock condition with the original hang tag and original sticker on the back. The watch has never been polished and the band stands straight out! The dial and hands are also in mint condition with beautiful matching patina. It is difficult and rare to find a 1970s Rolex Submariner in such mint condition as these were tool watches and typically have a lot of wear and tear.

The Rolex Submariner

The Rolex Submariner is without a doubt one of the most successful Rolex models in history. Not only because it more than aptly served its purpose as diver’s watch, although I am pretty sure only a small number of Submariners has ever seen a spat of water. Its appearance in several James Bond movies certainly helped as well. If you omit functionality and marketing, the Submariner success is mainly due to its elegance as a timeless dress watch. It’s just one of those watches you keep looking at, regardless of wanting to know the time of day. The Submariner was launched in 1953 and officially presented at the Basel Fair in 1954.
