Super full Set - We have here a great example of a early feet first 5513 Submariner. This watch has it in it. The case is super fat and is showing beautifully bevelled and well defined lugs. The bezel is sharp and is holding a period correct insert that has faded to a super cool gun metal grey insert. The bracelet is a US C&I Rivited Oyster with a matching date stamp. The bracelet is showing some wear from age. The Serif dial is near flawless and bears original tritium plots that have aged to a vivid and dark pumpkin color. The hands are original and matching. This very pretty 5513 is a feast for the eye. The combination of the strong pumpkin color on the luminous material with the gun metal grey insert is insane and is a magnet for looks. If that all was enough, this watch comes in a super full set with orig. box, carton, certificate and a stack of Service papers. We haven't had such a nice 5513 in for a long time

Released in 1954 at the Basel Watch Fair, the Submariner was the first watch to be water-resistant to 100m. The most recognizable watch in the Rolex line-up. The Submariner is characterized by its iconic black dial and diving bezel. A tool watch with a strong Rolex DNA, the Submariner is not only the most iconic Rolex, but probably the most iconic watch of all time.
