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.

    Watch shows better then in pictures . Second watch purchased from Bobs since October. Very happy with both experiences . I mistakenly overpaid on the price.of my last purchase. Along with the watch was a check for the overpayment. I feel Bobs as honest and trustworthy. Thanks
