Rolex made the reference 5513 from around 1962 to 1989 and here is a later example from circa 1984. This was right around the time Rolex switched from matte dials back to glossy ones, now they would have white gold circles around the lume. Collectors refer to this as "white gold surrounds" and this is still featured on Submariners of this day. This 5513 has aged nicely and the lume has all turned to a consistent yellow color giving the watch a quintessential vintage vibe. In addition to being a lovely example, this watch comes with its box and papers which is something we always love to have.

Fantastic transaction and watch even better than described / pictures. Tanya was great to deal with, easy communication, give her a raise!
Watch shows better then in pictures . Second watch purchased from Bobs since October. Very happy with both experiences . I mistakenly overpaid on the price.of my last purchase. Along with the watch was a check for the overpayment. I feel Bobs as honest and trustworthy. Thanks
Excellent service . Fantastic communication. I couldn’t of asked for more .
The watch was delivered very quickly and was exactly as advertised. They even provided a few vintage pamphlets from the period. All my questions were answered promptly. Overall great experience. I will definitely buy my next Rolex from Bob’s.
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.
