The Submariner 5513 was in production for more than 2 decades, with production ending in 1988. In its initial years the 5513 came with a glossy dial, but later examples switched to the matte dial, as in the example you see here. Moving away from the dial, you find the robust 40 mm case, rounded crown guards, and beveled lugs for which this reference is known. Rolex simplified this model by not handing it over to the COSC for chronometer certification. As a result of this, the dial is less cluttered and cleaner to read.
This timepiece has been previously polished (but left as it came to us) with its newer bezel showing some wear from use. The original “Feet First” dial is in pristine condition with a patina of a light eggshell color. The Tritium hands have aged as well and match the dial as well. A newer 93150 Oyster bracelet accompanies the head and shows matching wear from use. Durable, classic and timeless are just a few of the adjectives that can be applied to this timepiece.

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.
Just the way I expect it to be, excellente😊 This is my second purchase from Bob’s Watches , the service is great .
Excellent model 5513 Submariner
