Rolex Submariner 5513 Maxi MK1

immaculate dial - no date Submariner - timeless classic

This no-date Rolex Submariner 5513 was produced in 1977 and features an absolutely perfect matte dial.

The Rolex Submariner is the mother of all diving watches. Throughout its long history, the Submariner has been continually improved and modified. This circumstance created many versions that are studied and admired by vintage collectors. The no-date reference 5513, which was manufactured from 1966 to around 1984, is particularly popular. Due to the symmetry of the dial created by the lack of a date window, the watch has that classic look that many vintage collectors fall in love with. Another feature that makes the reference 5513 instantly recognizable is the two-line dial inscription at 6 o'clock.

The present Rolex Submariner 5513 features a maxi dial, which has larger hour markers compared to previous versions. There were 5 different executions within the Maxi family. The very first version (MK1) is the easiest to identify, because it was the only one with the word SUBMARINER under the depth rate. On all later versions, "SUBMARINER" was written above the depth rate.
