VINTAGE ROLEX SUBMARINER 5513
By Paul Altieri
This lovely Mark III Maxi "Lolipop" Submariner gets it whimsical nickname from the large hour markers on the dial being so close to the minute hashmarks next to them, thus reminding us of a lollipop. In addition to this example having a Maxi dial, it comes with a full kit of box and papers with all the accessories it would have come with when it was sold new in the 1980s. Unfortunately the guarantee was never filled in, which is something we have seen many times before. A couple neat things about this set is that the hangtag bears the case number on it and the box has the original "5513/0/B" sticker on the side indicating this was the box for the model. It even comes with the anchor which is something we love to see.

Fantastic transaction and watch even better than described / pictures. Tanya was great to deal with, easy communication, give her a raise!
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
Excellent service . Fantastic communication. I couldn’t of asked for more .
The watch was delivered very quickly and was exactly as advertised. They even provided a few vintage pamphlets from the period. All my questions were answered promptly. Overall great experience. I will definitely buy my next Rolex from Bob’s.
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.
