ROLEX SUBMARINER 5513 B&P
The 5513 Submariner, the absolute Classic Vintage Submariner and archetype of all dive watches!
This stunning Rolex Submariner was manufactured in 1970 and remains in a great condition with a strong case, still the original no. 700 crown and tube, and a very well conditioned 7206 Oyster bracelet with 80 end-links. Furthermore, The black inlay on our 5513 is a very rare MKI fat font inlay (this inlay alone will buy you a Datejust) the glossy black factory finish on the inlay has disappeared throughout the years and the inlay is now showing a nice matte black finish. This 5513 is accompanied by it’s original boxes, green folder, peeled 5513 case-back sticker and stamped HK warranty from 1971.
But the thing we all absolutely love is a perfect conditioned dial. The dial is very important with watch collecting and the one inside this 5513 is in a near perfect condition! This grainy matte black dial is without scratches, spots, moist damage or any other marks that might ruin a vintage watch dial. Also, no chipping of the paint on the outer edges where the stainless steel rehaut meets the dial – conditon, condition, condition! All hour-markers show a beautiful creamy patina which matches absolutely perfect with the hands. Not only does it match, but when viewed with a 12x loupe one can clearly see the Tritium composition in the hands is the exact same as the indexes, both also react the same when hit with a UV torch. The dial is a so-called feet first, non-serif dial where the printed depth rating is above the word SUBMARINER. The 660 ft depth rating shows the wonderful and desirable open sixes while at the top of the dial the late 60’s style, fat Rolex coronet is king.
This is one hell of a Submariner in a very, very good condition with all the correct parts and the desirable Riveted Oyster bracelet – To top it off there’s the original warranty and other goodies as described. You won’t find another 5513 like this anytime soon! This No Date Sub was fully serviced according to the Rolex specs and will be sold with a 12 month warranty.
