Note: Special 5513 Submariners were British Royal Navy military issues with specific adaptations. The strap bars were soldered in place to ensure they could only be fitted with a non-reflective cloth strap. The dial was marked with an encircled "T" to indicate the use of the luminous material tritium. Some versions such as the present example were fitted with a special fully calibrated bezel. The watches were also fitted with the hacking feature to allow for a precise synchronization of time. The rare 5513 offered here was previously sold at a Sotheby's auction December 18th, 2008.

Important: Heritage cannot arrange for the delivery of Corum, Rolex, Piaget and/ or Franck Muller watches to the United States because U.S. laws restricts the import of Corum, Rolex, Piaget and/or Franck Muller watches. These watches may not be shipped into the US. Heritage will not void a sale that involves importation into the US nor be liable if the watch is seized by customs. It is the buyer's responsibility to determine whether there are any import restrictions and to comply with such restrictions.
