Do you know anyone that uses their Submariner for scuba diving? The vast majority of Rolex Submariners never touch water let alone get used for their designed purpose of diving. Why is that? Is it because the owners are afraid to trust the water seal? If that true it’s a waste of incredible engineering including a screwdown case back, a trip-lock, waterproof crown and pressure sealed crystal. Is it a fear of the time keeping not being accurate enough to record your air tank capacity? If that’s true it’s a waste of a state of the art movement (no matter which version of submariner you have). I think the real reason this that the watch is stunning, simple, bold and iconic and people don’t care about diving. People just want a stylish and beautiful timepiece to wear! The submariner delivers in spades there.
This 5513 Submariner is in excellent shape with a strong case, pierced lugs and a newer 93150 oyster bracelet. It has a replacement, chronometer certified, 5512 dial that is in beautiful shape. The hands have aged to a wonderful eggshell patina and the minute hand luminous material is slightly cracked. The fat font bezel insert is in excellent condition. It also comes with a Rolex service card dated 4/18/2013. If you have any questions, please 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 .
