If you're in the market for your first vintage Rolex - or perhaps you wish to add an affordable vintage dive watch to your collection with an intriguing story - then the Submariner 5512 is an excellent option to consider. It came to market in the late 1950s and was among the first Submariner watches to feature crown guards. It was, notably, produced for several years alongside ref. 5513 and is nearly identical in design. What sets the two watches apart is the fact that the movement powering most ref. 5512's is chronometer rated, while the movement inside the ref. 5513 is not. You can often tell the difference because ref. 5512 will have the distinction "Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified" on the dial. The COSC rating also means that ref. 5512 often commands a slightly higher price on the pre-owned market than its counterpart 5513.
