THE KING OF THE MAXIS


The last run of matte dials that Rolex ran in the non-date 5513 Submariners were known as the Maxi Dials. The Mk1 Maxi is the one hat started it all and is the most desirable of the five variations. The tall, elongated coronet and the fact that the word Submariner (with its ‘z’ shaped S) appears below the depth rating are the key identifiers of the Mk1. The watch is in fantastic condition - the case is still very strong with a nice small bevel on the lugs.

The dial is flawless with the oversized hour plots and hands having retained a lovely bright light coloured shade; an effect often seen on Mk1 Maxis. The domed crystal makes the plots almost dance and change shape depending on how the light catches it. The bracelet is a 93150 flip-lock in good usable condition.
