Rolex Submariner 5513 Maxi MK1 Vivid Patina


The Mk1 was the first version from the last run of matte dials in the 5513 Submariners known as the Maxi Dials. It is a watch that we love, here at Bulang and Sons, and it is one of the most versatile sports watches you can own – it looks good on any strap for any occasion.

In fact, we love the 5513 and other Submariners so much that we launched the “No Date Sub Club”! You can read about this here.

This watch is in great condition with a lovely, strong case.
The dial is great with the oversized hour plots and hands having taken on a vivid vanilla/cream tone, we love it as it makes this watch come alive on the wrist.
The bezel insert has aged very gently and faded only a little bit and lume pearl has been filled we believe.
The bracelet is an Oyster 93150 flip-lock in good condition with 580 endlinks. The watch has been fully serviced by our watchmaker.

This month we have some incredible vintage Submariners here at Bulang and Sons so please get in touch to arrange a visit or for a call. We’re here to guide all you watch lovers!
