Our Opinion

Offered here is a marvellous example of the Rolex Gilt, Gloss & Meters First Dial Submariner reference 5513 manufactured circa 1964.

This example has the correct dial for its 103---- serial number. These early 5513 Submariners are the true portrayal of Rolex vintage collecting & this example has all the DNA from the early integration of the Submariner with its gloss, gilt & meters first dial.

The 5513 was introduced in 1962 & there was still a moderately revised model up to 1989 - making it one of the longest running model references in the Rolex line up.

The condition of this vintage Date Submariner overall is good. The case has been lightly polished in the past, but still retains strong equal lugs & crown guards along with the brushed finish to the top edges & chamfers remaining defined, the bezel has no dings or scratches & compliments the general appearance of this Submariner along with its service replacement insert. The gloss black dial has taken on a uniquely special tropical finish now to a beautiful consistency of ageing, the tritium hour plot markers & hands have also aged in line with the dial & only enhance the overall appearance of this vintage piece. The Plexi glass is free of any detrimental scratches or marks.

The watch comes on a slightly later Submariner folded link type of 9315 Oyster bracelet & 380 end links. This polished vintage bracelet is showing consistent wear & stretch with no discernible dents or scratches for a bracelet of this age.
