By Paul Altieri,
The Rolex Submariner reference 5513 was launched in the early 60’s and made until the late 80’s. The Submariner 5513 production has the longest production of all Submariner models. Its undisputable success can be credited to many features, all of which make the reference highly sought after by collectors around the world. From their gorgeous dial and bezel variations to their waterproof oyster cases, Rolex has designed features that subtly evolved over time; early models are coveted most by collectors.
The watch presented in this listing brings together many features that check the boxes for collectors. Produced in 1969, the watch is fitted with a matte dial and features a meters first variation as opposed to the more commonly seen feet first variation. The dial has its own charm and personality with its lume plots aging different shades and hands that match. We can assume these watches were used and worn often by the recipients in military environments, the present example is especially well preserved in overall excellent condition, making it a worthy example for the discerning Submariner collector.
*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 .
