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.

    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.
