A great example of a Rolex Submariner with maxi dial.Matte dials with larger lume plots have gained more attraction in the last few years, the distinctive and powerful look is what collectors are after. Though a meters first 5513 is around 10 years older and obviously rarer by numbers, the later Maxi dial shave over taken these in popularity as well as in value. The present example is in a very strong condition with a razor sharp case and a very clean dial with strong vivid patina.

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.
