Rolex Submariner Metres First 5513


The Classic MF Vintage Sub

At Bulang and Sons we love celebrating these classic Subs through our No Date Sub Club. And so we have another classic Rolex Submariner no date that is fitted with a dial version that was the very first matte-finish dial that Rolex mounted into the 5513, following the gilt glossy dials. The dial is in great, original condition, with cream-coloured hour plots.

The hands have the original lume, which has aged to a slightly darker shade. The fat font bezel insert has naturally faded to a blue hue. The rivet-link Oyster bracelet has a clasp stamped ‘66’ and is fitted with the correct reference 80 endlinks. The watch has been fully serviced by our watchmaker.
