The Rolex submariner has had many looks over the years: Red letters, domed crystals, fold over bracelets, no crown guards and more currently a Ceramic bezel. All of them have their own charms but to many collectors, the 5513 is a must own. Acrylic, domed crystal, 2 line lettering dial and most have aged to a creamy lume on the hour markers. All this combines to give an owner a beautiful vintage watch that has Rolex’s quality and submariner styling.
This 5513 was made in 1967 which places it fairly early in that production run. The case is in excellent condition with the lug bevels nice and crisp. The matte black dial is in great shape with some minor oil spotting. The bezel insert is aged and missing the luminous capsule further contributing to the vintage look. The newer 93150 oyster bracelet is a robust bracelet and is in excellent condition. 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 .
