The Quintessential Vintage Rolex Submariner

  • Najib Benouar

We love a good vintage watch, but sometimes finding the ideal specimen requires a good deal of legwork.

But if you happen to be in the market for a vintage Rolex Submariner, look no further than this 1968 beauty (part of a spectacular cache of vintage Rolexes and Omegas over at UrbanDaddy Perks). A classic Ref. 5513—the same one worn by James Bond in Live and Let Die—this would be a handsome addition/start to any collection. And thanks to a quirk on the dial that displays the depth rating in meters before feet (one of the many subtle rarities that aficionados obsess over), this particular watch is even more collectible.

Now to find yourself a young Jane Seymour to match.
