By Paul Altieri,
The 5513 is one of the most recognizable and sought after Submariner references in the market, but this version is the much less often run into “transitional” version. It has a black gloss dial rather than usual matte, and its hours markers are surrounded by a ring of white gold giving it a much more modern design than its earlier counterparts. It is and interesting model that spans two generations and holds a special place in history as a result.
This particular model was made in 1985 and is in beautiful shape, with its sharp, black, glossy dial and recently polished case. The dial has “spidered” with lines running across the dial giving it an even more unique appearance. This later version is sought after because it is the transitional version between the 5513 and the next generation 14060. This 5513 has the double line, feet-first dial, and the white-gold-surrounded indexes characteristic of the 14060, but has the plexiglass crystal used in the earlier 5513’s. The black bezel insert does show signs of scratching and wear further adding to the loved and used quality of this timepiece. The 93150 bracelet is in excellent condition with minimal stretch. This is such a beautiful timepiece, rugged and classic. If you have any questions please contact Larry at [email protected].
