Footnotes

  • In the early 1970s, the British Ministry of Defence commissioned a very limited batch of Rolex reference 5517/5513 Submariners, designed to enhanced specifications to meet the demands of their Special Forces.

    These "Military Submariners", or "MilSubs", differ in many ways from standard production pieces. They feature thicker, sword-shaped hands for enhanced legibility, a rotating bezel calibrated to 60 minutes, an encircled "T" on the dial indicating the use of luminescent Tritium, and solid steel bars fixed between the lugs.


    The current lot is being offered by the original owner and comes with his logbook.
