By Paul Altieri,
The Rolex Submariner 5513 was in production for more than 25 years, ending in 1988. Initially it came with a glossy dial, but later examples switched to the matte dial and finally it switched back to the gloss dial where it added white gold surrounds to the hour markers giving the watch a much more modern look. In addition to the dial, you find the legendary 40 mm case, crown guards, and beveled lugs for which this reference is known, all adding to the mystique of the Submariner.
This particular timepiece is an “R” serial indicating a manufacturing date of 1987 marking it one of the last years this model was manufactured. It has the sturdy 1520 automatic movement and a recently polished case showing off its beautiful lines. The newer bezel has been in place long enough to show signs of wear. The newer hands compliment the original dial well and truly show off this watch. The newer 93150 Oyster bracelet is in fantastic shape and comes with 12 links. This is a beautiful timepiece and a great example of 5513 in is closing years of production. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Larry at [email protected].

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.
