This specific 1978 Rolex Submariner Ref. 5513 is in absolutely stunning condition and retains its original Mk. II MAXI dial. The MAXI II dial is commonly seen in the 5 mil and early 6 mil stamped cases and was introduced in 1978. This was the first time that “SUBMARINER” would be printed above the depth rating in a matte dial.

The previously polished case retains even and thick lugs. The original fat font insert is in good overall condition, the previous owner replaced the once missing pearl with a Rolex luminova pearl service replacement. The Rolex 93150 bracelet w/ 593 end pieces shows some wear from use but has very minimal stretch.


The original matte black MAXI Mk. II dial is in excellent vintage condition. The large lume plots have aged to a beautiful golden yellow coloration and show no lume degradation when inspected under U.V. light. The original hands have aged to match the dial perfectly and remain fully intact when inspected with U.V. light.


None. The watch is running at spec and keeping time perfectly but additional service history is unknown.
