1969 Rolex Submariner (Ref. 5513) "Tritium Service Dial"

The Rolex Submariner Reference 5513 is the embodiment of the classic dive watch. Simple and sophisticated, yet also rugged, the 5513 is a purpose-built dive watch. The absence of the date function seen on other Submariner models (eg. Ref. 1680.) contributes to the clean look of this archetypal style. First introduced in 1962, Rolex produced the reference until 1989.
