Vintage Rolex Submariner 5513

By Paul Altieri

The Rolex Submariner Date 5513 was one of the first references in the line to offer a crown guard, proceeded only by its predecessor the reference 5512.  When detailing the history of the Rolex Submariner 5513, it’s important to mention the ref. 5512 first as it offers a style that is nearly identical but with a chronometer-rated movement.  Both models were produced alongside each other with the 5513 out-producing the 5512, thanks to a lower price point that was made possible by a non-COSC rated movement.  The longer production run – approx. twenty years - also equates to a greater availability on the pre-owned Rolex market, making the ref. 5513 relatively affordable and easy to obtain.

The vintage example that is presented here is in exceptional condition for a watch of this age, showing light wear with bevels intact as well as crisp serial and reference numbers.  There are a handful of bezel and dial variations available, with this particular Submariner presenting the time on a rare matte “Meters First” dial in a creamy patina.  Not only is this variation exceedingly difficult to find, but it also indicates that this is an earlier model 5513.  A “Long Five” fat font bezel insert accompanies the rare dial and is characterized by an elongated “5” at the 50 marker, creating a highly desirable feature set.

    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.

    Everything is fantastic, box, papers, warrenty, tags.... But the bracelet has been polished, while it said it didn't, and the watch itself has many more little and light scratches that I didn't expect, for me it's condition 2,not 1,as you said..... Not very happy about it..... Best regards. Jacopo anticoli

    This was the most seamless and transparent buying experience. I purchased the watch on a Monday night and received it on Wednesday morning. I cannot be more pleased with both the purchasing process and the outcome.
