HISTORY IN BRIEF
The Rolex Submariner is one of the models that made the history of Rolex.
Over the years the Rolex Submariner has been modified several times both on an aesthetic and technical level to meet customers needs.
These changes happened during the years are very evident in two contemporary and very similar models: the Submariner reference 5513 and reference 5512.
The substantial difference between these two references is the caliber.
In fact, the first one available for purchase was the 5512 which came with a COSC caliber.
Circa 3 years later Rolex presented the reference 5513 which was more economical because the caliber had no COSC certification.
This small but significant change in the range of Submariner models was made to diversify the company offer in order to satisfy customers who wanted a waterpoof watch which was less expensive and more in their economical range.
The present specimen of the reference 5512 is exceptionally preserved.
The watch has surely been worn a lot by the previous owner but it has never been polished.
If we look close we can still notice the original factory bevels and finishing.
The dial’s patina is simply unbelievable, during the years the tritium plots gradually changed color to a fantastic pumpkin orange tone.
The watch was produced in 1973 and all of its component are temporally correct : Mk3 inlay, 4 Lines FT first dial, Triplelock crown, 93150 bracelet, 1570 COSC caliber, 5513 I/72 signed caseback.
Only the end links have been changed.
This fantastic 5512 also come with original papers, booklets, leather wallet, translation papers.
A true gem for a Rolex vintage collector!
