1968 Rolex Submariner 5513 "Meters First" Caramel Patina
  • 1968 Rolex Submariner 5513 "Meters First" Caramel Patina

    This one is for the patina lovers: a probably untouched Rolex Submariner 5513 "meters first" dial with awesome caramel patina and a crazy gunmetal fat font insert. Just how we like Vintage!


    Serial: 23XXXXX (1968/69)


    Case: Excellent vintage case with factory bevels still visible and very thick lugs. Showing wear from use - this watch was likely worn as a daily. The caseback is stamped IV.68.


    Dial: Original "meters first" dial in very good condition with a gorgeous caramel patina. The tritium hands aged a few shades lighter. The original fat font insert faded to a crazy beautiful gunmetal/blueish hue and remains in a overall good condition with a small crack at the triangle.


    Bracelet: Original 7206 rivet bracelet with 58 endlinks in excellent condition. Obviously it has been restored in the past and shows no stretch. Comes with 12 links in total, clasp stamped: 4.68.


    Movement: Carefully checked by our watchmaker, running at COSC.


    Accessories: None.
