The reference 5513 was produced from 1966 to the late 1980’s, and can be recognized by its stark matte black dial. This particular Model 5513 was from fairly early in the series, produced around 1969. Rolex printed early dials of this model the meters listed first in the dept rating up until 1969, making this one of the first of the new style dial with the feet first markings. The original dial is in excellent shape with both the markers and matching hands a light eggshell patina making it a nice uniform patina.
The case is also in great condition with minimal signs of wear and bevels showing crisply and clearly. The original, fat font bezel insert has faded to a light gray that will one day (with luck) become ghost! The later bracelet from 1982 is in good condition minimal sign of stretch. This is a beautiful and clean piece!
