Rolex Vintage Submariner 5513

By Paul Altieri

The Vintage Rolex Submariner reference 5513 is one of the longest running sport watches Rolex has ever produced. With a production run of nearly 30 years, the Submariner ref. 5513 is one of the more commonly seen of the vintage Rolex watches, but for good reason - it was the design of the 5513, and its counterpart reference 5512, that has continued to inform the design of the Submariner to this day. 

This particular watch is in incredible condition and features a pristine dial with an incredibly well-aged, ghost, "kissing 4" dial. While the reference 5513 Submariner may be a slightly more common collectible, there is plenty to love about this uniquely beautiful vintage Rolex.

    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.
