Up for grabs is a stunning example of a Rolex Submariner, Reference 5513, circa 1979 (6.0m serial). This example features a very desirable 1st execution (MK1) “Maxi” dial, denoting the larger size of the lume plots, as compared to the Submariner’s predecessors. Additionally, this example comes with its original “punched” Rolex Guarantee Certificate, dating the original sale to 1982 in Pennsylvania, USA.
This Rolex Submariner is in great vintage condition. The case appears unpolished, with beautifully beveled edges. The dial is immaculate, with no chips, scratches, or flaws. The original tritium lume is present on both dial and hands, aged to a vibrant yellow color. The bezel insert is period correct to this reference, and is in good condition, with a light fade setting in.
The watch comes equipped with a flip-lock 93150 bracelet with 580 endlinks, and is in good condition with 12 full links and no stretch.
