FSOT: 1966 Rolex Submariner 5513 Meters First

That's a very nice Vintage Submariner that makes a great daily wearer. It's a very early meters first dial in beautiful condition that has only a little of the lume left.
The case back and the bezel insert are service replacements. The hands are an original tritium set which was probably an early service replacement. All in all this makes now a very nice matching combination of dial and hands.
The bracelet is a later 93150 Oyster band with flip lock clasp. It has some stretch and some signs of wear but is still well wearable.
