Rolex Vintage Submariner 5513

By Paul Altieri

Often seen as the “first step” model into the vintage Rolex market, the 5513 Submariner is readily available and has a price range to satisfy both the cost conscious collector and the most seasoned aficionado.

This timepiece has its original Mark 1 dial with its maxi markers aged to creamy yellow color. Its original handset has aged to one shade darker than the dial. This 5513, Non-C.O.S.C . dial has only 2 lines of printing on the dial which collectors find clean and appealing.  The 1520 movement is in excellent condition and is running well.

The 40mm case has been recently polished but is in excellent condition for its age with a bezel insert that has beautifully aged and faded. The caseback is correctly stamped 5513 inside. The 93150 Oyster bracelet shows signs of some stretch consistent with age but matches well with the rest of the watch.

    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.

    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.

    I knew the watch I wanted and did the bulk of the sale online. I only had a few questions regarding payment and shipping which were quickly and thoroughly answered with one phone call.
