Military Rolex Submariner model 5513
This military-issue Rolex Submariner model 5513 was supplied to the Royal Marines in 1975. Note the peculiar hands, specified by HM Government. These watches were fitted not on bracelets but on a nylon strap secured over fixed bars between the lugs. At the end of his service the navy diver in this instance chose to fit a generic bracelet over the fixed bars. Originally it will also have had a bezel marked with full 60-minute divisions, but these were often lost during active service and replaced with a standard, civilian bezel as here. Even so, in this condition it remains a watch worth tens of thousands of pounds.
