Vintage Rolex Submariner 5513

By Paul Altieri

This 5513 is a real looker. The combination of the ghost bezel and off white colored lume patina on the dial and hands gives this watch a great look. Collectors gravitate towards these faded bezels because they all fade a little differently over time making each one unique.

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 .

Great company

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.
