The Raw 5513
The Submariner is the most famous tool watch ever made and collectors love it in the used 'raw' condition showing character, scars and memories. This 5513 Maxi MK5 is one of those examples which has been loved and worn and is shown character from age. The unpolished case is still showing original chamfers on the fat and original condition case. The dial is in excellent condition with ivory color lume plots and matching hands. The seconds hand has corroded and taken on a rusty brown color. If only the watch could talk, we would love to hear those stories.

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.
