The Rolex Submariner 5513 with Maxi dial is a great watch with a strong presence on the wrist. The larger lume plots in combination with the domed plexi crystal is why collectors choose the Maxi. The present watch is a great example from the last dial version in 1984 before it was discontinued. The greyish aged bezel together with the cream colored lumes give it a very warm and pleasant look. A watch which will go with everything.

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.
