Watch details

The Rolex Submariner 5513 is probably the most collected Rolex today, not only because the number of models it was produced in but also for the variations in those. This later version of the Reference 5513 is the so-called maxi dial version. Characteristic for the Maxi are the larger lume plots which become more dominant and provide a more powerful look on the wrist. This very watch features the MK 4 dial and extremely well preserved. It gives you the feeling you just traveled back in time and are wearing a brand new watch. The overall condition of this watch is extremely strong.

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.
