By Paul Altieri,
The reference 5513 was produced from the mid 1960’s into the late 1980’s, and can be recognized by its matte black dial. This particular Model 5513 was from fairly late in the series, produced around 1982. Collectors like this model for the simplicity and symmetry of the dial. The lack of the date and corresponding Cyclops, that is a trademark for Rolex, give the dial a nice clean feel that is appreciated by a lot of divers. The original dial is in excellent shape with both the markers and matching hands a light eggshell patina making it a nice uniform patina.
This 7.1 million serial submariner has a case that is in fantastic shape. It was only minimally polished in is lifetime and as a result has its original bevels intact and visible. The case shows light signs of wear giving this watch a character that you should expect from a nice, vintage piece. The mark V dial is in beautiful shape showing off its dial applied hour markers well. Also, having the hand patina match the dial patina is a definite plus for this watch. The bezel insert shows signs of age complimenting the case well. All this is held on by a complimentary, Italian, leather black strap that finishes out the look with taste and style.
