The 5513 Submariner is often seen as the “entry level” model into the vintage Rolex market. Being both plentifully available and having a price range can satisfy both the beginning collector and the most experienced aficionado, it is a beautiful and versatile collectible.
This timepiece has a superb glossy gilt dial with tritium hour markers aged to a beautiful creamy yellow color with its handset matching the plots as well. The 5513, having switched back to a Non-C.O.S.C. model enjoys the 2 line dial. With minimum verbiage on the dial, this cleanliness appeals to many collectors. This dial shows minimal signs of age and is excellent condition.
The 40mm case has been previously polished but is in excellent condition for its age with a bezel insert that has a nicely aged, “fat font” printing with the correct “long 5” indicator. The oval link, “Big Logo” jubilee bracelet that has been added to this is an unusual addition to this timepiece. Not ever supplied from the factory in this format, this Jubilee bracelet give this 5513 Submariner a unique look while still maintains its Rolex quality.
