My 5513 I inherited in 1984 and was able to wear in 1996 when I graduated college. Service crystal and crown. Everything else original. I have the rivet bracelet too.

It’s the OG tropic strap (tropicstrap.com); super soft rubber and vintage style. I also purchased a yellow one.

Thank you very much.

I believe it's the 94613 from 1984 all original minus bracelet. I had it thoroughly overhauled and it runs beautifully. I had the hands relumed because it had a touch of mold on them.

Proud to have purchased our uncles red sub from 1971. This workhorse was worn everyday during his career with Onassis shipping, and beyond. Original bracelet is long gone, but we love the look and family history.

Slightly better images without reflections! Both keep phenomenal time, the 1675 makes a beautiful noise "tin tin tin ting ting ting tin tin tin" 16760 only GMT II with a matte dial which I prefer over gloss.
