The Unpolished - Absolute incredible example of a 5513 Submariner with Maxi MK4 dial. This watch seems to have been worn very sparingly and must have been tucked away for most of its life. The condition of the entire watch harmonizes in all of its components, the sharpness of the unpolished case, bracelet and bezel gives it a very strong and powerful look rounded up by a flawless dial with a vivid vanilla patina. The most iconic tool watch of all times, the 5513 is also one of the most beautiful watches, in this condition.
|Excellent strong unpolished case showing very little wear from age. The lugs remain fat and bear the very well defined factory bevels. Reference and Serial numbers are crisp and fully intact. The bezel is equally sharp and unpolished, bears the original insert. The Pearl is cracked internally but does not fall out, it glows when exposed to UV, assumingly has been replaced.
|Bracelet / Strap
|Original matching 91350 Oyster bracelet with clasp code G, standing for 1982 and matching with the case. The bracelet is in equally crisp unpolished condition and only shows minimal stretch from age, has 11 links
|Excellent Maxi MK4 dial with very strong Vanilla Patina and flawless surface free of any deterioration, bubbling or tool marks. The hands are also in excellent condition and have a matching patina
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.
