In 1953 Rolex presented the iconic and until today beloved Submariner. The first reference of this model was the famous 6200. From the beginning the characteristics
of the Submariner were: An easy and simple use, and a good readability. The main target was to create a timepiece which should serve divers under water, simply a truly
functional tool; and this goal had been achieved. Of course this model went through a steady evolution and changed continuously. As early examples do not have the crown guards to protect the
winding crown against shocks or damages, also the cases became more solid over the years.

The here shown 5513 left the Geneva motherhouse in approximately 1983. This specific Submariner reference became famous because of Q´s modifications for the world
famous agent James Bond (Roger Moore) in the 1973 movie «Live and let die». Of course this was one of the reasons for the tremendous success of this pure timepiece.
The dial as well as the hands and even the luminous dot bear a beautiful patina which looks appropriate for that age. This watch is in perfect original condition throughout and received
a full service, and was moreover guaranteed by Rolex Geneva – another proof for the stunning quality of this icon.
