Watch details

Purchased from an estate, this watch was clearly must have been a one-owner watch and was barely ever worn. The case is in phenomenal condition, never polished, with the original Rolex 5513 caseback sticker. The bracelet is so crisp it appears the previous owner may have only worn the watch on a strap the few times it was worn. The dial is flawless, the incredible chamfers are very clean. This is a rare opportunity at a watch that feels like it just came out of a time machine. This watch comes with it's original hangtag, box and display anchor.

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.
