Rolex submariner 5513 pre comex 1978
Just received this fantastic little "submarine" with timeless design: 5513 pre comex.
The more I get involved into watches, the more I understand why the Rolex submariner design is the most succesfull watch design of all times. This watch has it all: sublime marker and hands patina ( not too yellow, just that beautiful creamy white ), absence of an ugly cyclops that ruins the dial, black charcoal dial, blue-grey faded bezel insert, the lugs still fat and hardly scratched and finally that great James Hyman leather strap with contrasting stitches. I'll be back with some more info on that "pre comex" story. Enjoy this picture of the watch.
