The bezel insert is in great condition with normal signs of wear, the bezel has remained sharp and unpolished. The pip has aged to a soft beige and still holds a glow. The dial is in overall good, honest condition. The lume plots on the dial are all full and have aged to an attractive sand color and some show signs of degradation. The hands have developed a very light patina and the lume has aged to a similar sand color. The rivet Oyster bracelet is in excellent condition with normal wear and some stretch between the links which is not uncommon. 

Description: Vintage Rolex Submariner 5513

Pre-owned Rolex Submariner 5513 (1967) introduced around 1962 and it was in production until 1989. It was one of the longest continually produced references from the brand. Rolex initially used glossy dials in this model and swapped to matte around 1966, like this example. When Rolex went to the matte dial they also put the depth rating as "200m = 660ft" and these are known as "meters first" in the collecting community. Eventually Rolex would swap the depth rating to feet first around the early 1970s and have continued this trend to the modern offerings. One theory on this change is that Rolex wanted to boost sales in the United States, but to our knowledge Rolex has not made any definitive statements on this shift.

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

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.
