A metres first Submariner originally from 1968/69.
This is a really lovely old submariner which has fallen victim to the modern craze for body enhancement. Fortunately, it has not been to a tanning salon, had liposuction or any form of Botox.
It has however been back to Rolex UK in 2015 and had at vast expense a complete new middle case fitted. This work along with the service, cost the original owner £2482. This work probably halved the value of the watch.
The rather wonderful thing is that Rolex never replaced the dial. It is a beautiful example of a metres first matt dial in stunning clean condition. As is usual when Rolex replaced the middle case, they maintain the original back. If you look at the detailed pictures you will see that the back has the 5513-ref number along with the date stamp from 1968.
The new case number now corresponds to the Rolex service card from 2015.
The bracelet is a non-flip-lock bracelet ref. 78360 with 580 end pieces with a date code from 2006.
There is also a receipt from 1998 from another Rolex AD for bezel insert exchange.
This is an example of a Rolex tool watch which has been bought to be used and updated to ensure that it functions properly.
The watch runs beautifully with an amplitude in excess of 265 in various positions, keeping very good time.
