The Vintage Rolex Submariner reference 5513 is one of the longest running sport watches Rolex has ever produced. With a production run of nearly 30 years, the Submariner ref. 5513 is one of the more commonly seen of the vintage Rolex watches, but for good reason - it was the design of the 5513, and its counterpart reference 5512, that has continued to inform the design of the Submariner to this day.
This particular watch is in incredible condition and features a pristine dial with an incredibly well-aged, ghost, "kissing 4" dial. While the reference 5513 Submariner may be a slightly more common collectible, there is plenty to love about this uniquely beautiful vintage Rolex.
*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
