Rolex Submariner 5513 MK I Maxi DialFor sure one of the craziest Sub’s we have in stock right now. This super cool piece from 1978 comes with the Mark I dial. So, this is one of the very first versions of the latest series of matte dials, with reference 5513, that Rolex made. The MK I dial also is the only 5513 maxi-dial without the ‘sub on top’ what makes it even rarer. The bezel-inlay has a magnificent bluish fade and the domed plexiglass gives the maxi dial an even cooler look. Be quick to get this one!

Introduction

REF. 5513The 5513 is the longest-running Submariner reference, having been in production for a whopping 27 years (from 1962-1989). The rare pointed crown guards made their first appearance with this model and were later replaced by the rounded crown guards. The 5513 uses the calibre 1530 movement, which is not chronometer certified, and therefore has a dial that bears 2 lines of text (as opposed to the 4-line chronometer dials on the ref. 5512). Early executions of the 5513 featured the rare ‘meters first dial,’ because the depth rating in meters was printed before the rating in feet (“200m = 660ft). Around 1969, Rolex switched to printing the feet before the meters to satisfy the growing American customer base.
