vintage ROLEX SUBMARINER 5513

By Paul Altieri

Rolex made the reference 5513 from around 1962 to 1989 and here is a later example from circa 1989. The defining characteristics of these last generation 5513's would be the white gold borders around the hour markers, this is known as "white gold surrounds." This is a characteristic that started in the mid-late 1980s and is still featured on Submariners of this day. This example has been worn, but taken care of over the years and is ready for a new home.

    Watch shows better then in pictures . Second watch purchased from Bobs since October. Very happy with both experiences . I mistakenly overpaid on the price.of my last purchase. Along with the watch was a check for the overpayment. I feel Bobs as honest and trustworthy. Thanks

    I have made several purchases and one sales through Bob’s. The order process, payment, processing, and most importantly delivery have all been absolutely flawless. Very quick and efficient. I never look anywhere else for used Rolex.
