5513, Hafez Al-Assad Syrian Dial Submariner, Steel
An extremely rare ref. 5513 Submariner made for late former President of Syria Hafez Al-Assad with his signature in red Arabic script. Sometimes referred to as the Syrian Submariner, this example is one of just a handful known today. This is an important piece in the history of Rolex and their decades catering to some less savory world leaders, an example with an incredible story in just the last two decades.
