Up for grabs is a stunning example of a Rolex Submariner, Reference 5513, circa 1978. This example features a desirable 4th execution (MK4) “Maxi” dial, denoting the larger size of the lume plots, as compared to the Submariner’s predecessors.
This Maxi-dial Rolex Submariner is in excellent vintage condition. The case does not appear polished (or if it ever was, it was very light), with sharp edges and original beveled chamfers still visible. The dial is immaculate – not a flaw in sight. The original tritium lume is present on both dial and hands, aged to a creamy yellow color. The bezel insert is period correct to this reference, and in excellent condition.
The watch comes equipped with a flip-lock 93150 bracelet with 580 endlinks, and is in excellent condition with 10 full links (additional links can be provided on request, if needed) and almost no stretch.
