Rolex Submariner Ref.5513 “Meters First” Watch, Watch Replicas Online Free

The Rolex Submariner is one of those truly ‘icon’ models and remains the pinnacle of diving watches today. Among the Submariner models, there are quite a few precious models, usually of limited production period or deficient production; Ref. 5513 “Meters First” is one of them.

Ref.5513 is one of the models coveted by many collectors, released in 1962. Back then, the Submariner was a pure tool watch replicas, not as closely associated with a luxury lifestyle as today. The design of Ref.5513 is simple and practical, the case diameter is 39 mm, and the protective device can protect the crown from impact. Most Ref. 5513 watches have conventional hour markers on the dial, but this model uses the explorer’s classic configuration, with Arabic numerals as 3, 6, and 9 o’clock markers.

The small dot below the 6 o’clock position makes this watch even more unique. In the 1960s, regulations surrounding the use of radium were tightened, and the small dots indicated that the clock was less radioactive. This type of dial has been nicknamed the “exclamation point” dial, which is very apt. The name “Meters First” is based on the waterproof performance of the “Meters” (meter) unit marked on the front and the “Feet” (feet) unit marked on the back.

This is an early Ref.5513 watch, which is often used as a tool watch and is rarely in such a good state of maintenance. The watch even comes with an original Oyster bracelet, further adding to its appeal. These highly collectible watches have wholly transitioned from tool watches to undeniable luxury.
