Rolex Military Submariner 5513 – Repair & Restoration – Milsub

It is always nice when we have such a rare and valuable watch like this left for repair and service. A Rolex 5513 Military Submariner still in the hands of its original owner and showing real signs of use and wear. Can you imagine the military now issuing a Rolex Submariner to special forces service men? These watches were little understood and undervalued for a long time, thankfully now the true value of these has been realised.

This vintage Rolex Submariner came into our workshop, Perspex fractured and chipped away. Dirt building up around the thread of the case tube and under the bezel.

The movement had not been serviced in a very long time and the watch had not been worn for an equally long period of time, still perfect and untouched, but oil dried and congealed.
