The Rolex Submariner 5513 was introduced in 1962 with no COSC printing on the dial (different from the 5512) and was the perfect tool watch for professional divers. First with the caliber 1530 and then, during the same year, with the caliber 1520 and updated crown-guard design.


This particular example with serial number 2,912,xxx dates back to 1972. It features a beautiful black matte dial with ‘Serif’ creamy patina lume hour markers and matching hands. The faded/ghost bezel is in very good condition as well as the matching patina on the pearl, giving it a distinctive look. The fat 40mm stainless steel case is in great condition with sharp bevels. The domed plexi has no scratches.


The watch is running good and keeping time. It comes suited with a vintage Rolex Submariner 9315 bracelet with 380 endlinks and stamped 1/76.
