James Bond, the fictional spy made famous by Ian Flemming is his books, proudly wore the Rolex model 5513 in several books and movies. Often it was a modified version of the standard model with lasers, buzz saws and other gadgets but it is a testament to Rolex that the base model is durable enough to be considered good enough for the flamboyant “007”.
This present watch was manufactured in 1987 and is a great example of the later transitional models of the 5513. The gloss black dial has the white gold surround markers and is in beautiful shape. The hands have tritium luminous material and match the dial perfectly. The case is in good condition and has recently been polished and it shows off the sharp lug bevels very well. The newer bezel insert has a few slight scratches and shows proper signs of age. The 93150 bracelet is in excellent shape with minimal stretch. This piece is gorgeous and priced to move, make sure to grab this one! If you have any questions feel free to contact Larry at [email protected]

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 .
