The perfect replica Submariner ref. 5513 is one of the most iconic Rolex sport watches out there. The non-date watch pays tribute to the original Submariner that came out in 1953, and today, Rolex still offers the Submariner sans date. There is something about a non-date Submariner that collectors gravitate toward. Whether it be the symmetry or the simplicity, it’s something that gets us fired up. The two lines of text at the bottom of the dial coupled with the moniker and “Oyster Perpetual” text at the top of the dial is just perfect. It’s not too much, but just enough to know what you have on your wrist and its capabilities. My favorite things about vintage Rolex sport watches are all the tiny differences between the same models that most people don’t see and, quite frankly, don’t care about. We thrive off of those, and when you can spot a tiny detail from afar, it’s seriously satisfying.
The ref. 5513 we have in the Online Shop today is the perfect example of this. This Swiss made fake watch features a Mark 3 Maxi “lollipop” dial, which is quite sought-after by collectors. This dial has a subtle feature where the lume plots are super close, or nearly touching, the minute hash mark next to the plot, making it look like a lollipop, hence the nickname. Also, due to the nature of the dome crystal, this detail can be accentuated. These Maxi 5513s are great watches for all occasions, and when you want a new look, popping off the bracelet and slipping on a NATO or leather strap is super easy, especially with the lug holes.
