Pictured before you is a spectacular 1978 Rolex Submariner 5513 with a “Pre Comex” dial. For those that don’t know the “Pre Comex” term was coined to differentiate between itself and the “Maxi” style dials. These had a short production period of approximately 2 to 3 years making them a scarce wristwatch to source. And when you find them with some character it can really elevate what you have. This example has an incredible ghost insert that really amplifies its appearance. Mixing that with the original yellowed luminescent and clean matte black dial and you end up with a real winner. There’s something about having a level of patina on the original hands that just draws you in. A nice thick Oyster case adds excellent definition. When the caseback is removed you can see how there is zero pitting in the underside of the case making for a nice clean seal when screwed on. The Oyster Perpetual caliber 1520 automatic movements are always on point, will never let you down. And having a solid link steel bracelet with fliplock clasp for additional durability is a great feature. If you want to see some extra photos and know more about this watch click riiiigghhhttt here.
