Our Opinion

"The Rolex Submariner 5513 is arguably one of the most collectible Submariners in the series. It was introduced in 1966 following the highly successful 5512 that had been in production since 1959 and featured a chronometer 1530 movement.

The 5513 was mainly produced with a 1520 calibre, and in greater numbers without an officially certified chronometer. While this meant that perhaps the timekeeping was less accurate, it also meant there was less wording on the dial with its two lines of text instead of four below the hands. To many, this was a more attractive, less cluttered design.

This model has an intense tropical dial showing prominent ageing marks in the form of flaking and bubbling of the dial paint. This effect is often due to simple humidity and pressure changes over decades and gives a totally unique patina to each watch in this way.

The dial of this 5513 has it’s original lume in tact with some degradation to the lume spots and black dial paint. The hands potentially have serviced tritium but have also cracked and discoloured due to ageing. The case back is in good condition with some small dents and scratches. The bezel is serviced and has a replacement superluminova pearl.

The watch comes on a brown leather strap with Rolex pin buckle, plus an additional G10 leather strap. The serial dates to 1964 and the watch comes with a Xupes presentation box."
