‘THE SHADOW’ – A UNIQUE FACTORY BLACKED-OUT ROLEX SUBMARINER 5513 ‘MILSUB’

There are watches so legendary, people who have seen them in the metal are haunted by them for the rest of their life. You read about it in oldschool watch forums where watch enthusiasts who have heard the stories shyly ask if they really exist. Watches that are single-handedly responsible for a whole new genre of watch customization. I am talking of course about the famous teflon coated South African Milsub. Nicknamed ‘The Shadow’, it is the only known factory blacked-out Rolex which happens to be a Submariner Ref. 5513 made for the South African Special Forces in the mid 1970s. A lucky bastard, I had the unique chance to spend some hands-on quality time with this metallic dream come true.
