The Rolex Submariner 5513 was the longest produced Rolex reference for a very good reason, it is “The Dive Watch” of all dive watches. This Submariner carries that highly sought-after reference and dates back to 1966 when England won the world cup!
The classic, “pointed crown guard” stainless steel case weighs in at 40mm and houses the stalwart Calibre 1530. This is not chronometer-certified, and so has a dial with two lines of text (as opposed to the 4-line chronometer dials).
Underneath the replacement plexiglass crystal is a late series 5513 glossy black “feet-first” Service dial with white gold surrounds that encapsulate each of the tritium hour markers, all complemented by a contemporary hand set.
The watch is in overall good condition with only minor stretch on the ‘78360’ Oyster bracelet dating from 1987.
The 1530 movement has been recently serviced and is running perfectly.
The bezel is in good condition but has lost its 12 o’clock ‘pip’. The vintage condition case’s thick lugs still show original chamfers and the serial and reference numbers are fully intact and are clearly visible between the lugs.
Needless to say, this is a very good example of a famous Rolex reference.
