The Submariner was first released in 1953, following a challenge to Rolex founder Hans Wilsdorf to create a dive watch that was not only functional but also appropriate for evening and dress wear. What came from that conversation was the Submariner—a tool watch with a rotating bezel, luminous markers, and a less-sporty design that could transition into any situation.
Although all vintage Submariners do possess an indescribable rugged charm, few standard issue Submariners are as impressive on the wrist as the Ref. 5517 and 5513/5517 military Submariners. “Some of the rarest Submariners ever made.” Issued exclusively to enlisted members of the British military, these fixed bar dive watches are commonly regarded as some of the ultimate tool watches.Please use the pictures to determine the condition to your own standard as pictures are of the exact watch being offered for sale.
