Rolex Submariner 5513 BP Tanker
A special engraving giving a glimpse into the history of this watch, issued to a cadet in 1968
Dated 1968 this 5513 is a really interesting piece. The case back reads 'Prize Award Best Navigating Cadet 1968', issued by the BP Tanker company on successful completion of their offshore training programme. The watch has come from the family of the original owner, coming to the market for the first time after 52 years of service.
The lume is raised, without any damage, and consistent in colouring with the hands. The case is in good condition and not over polished. The bezel insert has a mark between 25 and 30 but otherwise in good order with the original pearl still in place. The bracelet is later 78360 with H clasp code.
