For many collectors, the quintessential watch ever made is a Submariner without date – the reference 5513 to be specific. As tool watches, most examples of the reference 5513 have been heavily worn and/or have replacement parts such as hands, dials, etc. The present watch is special as it has one of the most attractive colors of tritium luminous material (also known as “lume”) on the dial we have seen, a beautiful warm cream color. Furthermore, this watch has the original and rare "Long 5" bezel insert.
*All Pre-Owned Rolex watches are guaranteed to be 100% genuine and certified authentic. All watches are shipped to fit the average size wrist (7 1/4" - 7 1/2" for men and 6 1/4" - 6 1/2" for women). Additional links can be purchased if needed.
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 .
Excellent model 5513 Submariner
