Rolex Submariner 5513

By Paul Altieri

Sometimes a watch need some tender loving care due to damage and needs to be completely repaired with a new dial and bezel insert. To a high end collector this is devastating but to a beginning collector it affords an opportunity. Often these “pristine” vintages are priced to reflect their new parts and can be purchased a lower price than if they were all original. Still retaining their place in history and Horological culture, these “new” vintages lets a young collector or casual vintage admirer get into a desirable piece that is within their budget

This 5513 is precisely such a piece; its service dial is clean and white. Its handset matches as well.  The case is in excellent condition showing typical sign of wear, was recently polished but retains nice sharp lug bevels. The bezel insert shows matching signs of wear as well. The bracelet is in good condition with little to no stretch. This is a beautiful vintage piece at an attractive price!

    The condition of this vintage Rolex 5513 is nicer than I anticipated based on the age. Your staff was very helpful and went out of their way to help make sure I had enough links in the band.

    Everything is fantastic, box, papers, warrenty, tags.... But the bracelet has been polished, while it said it didn't, and the watch itself has many more little and light scratches that I didn't expect, for me it's condition 2,not 1,as you said..... Not very happy about it..... Best regards. Jacopo anticoli

    This was the most seamless and transparent buying experience. I purchased the watch on a Monday night and received it on Wednesday morning. I cannot be more pleased with both the purchasing process and the outcome.
