This is a vintage c. 1967 stainless steel reference 5513 Rolex Submariner with a "Meters First" dial and early "Kissing 40" bezel insert. The 40mm diameter solid three-body case, reeded bezel, and downturned lugs are polished/brushed. It includes a graduated bi-directional revolving black bezel for the decompression times marked in luminous Arabic numerals. The "Meters First" black dial has luminescent round, triangular, and baton hour index markers, an outer minute track, luminous steel skeleton hands, and a center sweep seconds hand. There is a screw-down solid case back and a protected patented Rolex Trip-lock winding crown with a crown guard. It's water resistant to 660 feet, and the 14.5mm thick case, dial, and movement are all signed.

The mechanical automatic self-winding Rolex caliber 1520 movement is rhodium-plated, and constructed with 26 jewels, and a shock absorber mechanism. It includes a straight-line lever escapement, a monometallic balance that's adjusted for temperature and 5 positions. There is a self-compensating flat balance spring, and a central hacking seconds mechanism.
