Not sure if i said it before… but the most ‘Sex on the wrist’ you can get for your money is the Rolex 5513 Maxi Mk1 Submariner. You have seen some 1680 Maxi’s on my website with #19 superdome plexis on top… all to simulate the amazing look of this all time favorite of mine. The Maxi Mk1 shows the biggest indexes Rolex ever made. Just eye poping on your wrist and under an #19 superdome just pure magic at every move of your wrist.

These Maxi Mk1’s are only made in a certain serial range end of the 70th. And they are the ‘mother’ of all Maxi dials, like also used in the 5517 Milsub.

As you can see, this example is in a very nice condition, so hard to find these days. Nice MK1 5513’s get very, very hard to find.

We are happy to be able to present you this all time vintage classic in a nice package. We added some of our signature line products to give that beast even e bit of extra style.

This watch still has an fat case and an amazing dial. The Maxi indexes just pop under the #19 superdome plexi. The hands are also tritium but show some darker patina then the indexes, as more often seen on maxi dial submariners. The images show that well. And its less visible in daylight on your wrist. As we prefer honest watches we did not want to change anything to the watch and hands.

But we did not stop there. As you know us we love to create a matching package around these great pieces.

With this watch we wanted to add some of our Signature products like the all handmade canvas/leather watch roll, the Signature Watch Tool and an Oskar Gydell handmade bracelet. But we will also add some more. You get 2 of our handmade watch straps. Amazing vegetable tanned leather straps from our Signature collection that are a perfect compliment for your vintage watch. Ready to dress up your watch and go in style.
