About This Watch:

The Rolex Submariner is one of the most iconic timepieces made, by any watch manufacturer, ever. Designed as a sports/dive watch, its classic styling remains the model for many modern watches in production today. This Ref 5513 has a Matte Dial “feet-first” depth rating and dates to the production year of 1971.

The History:

The Rolex brand needs no introduction. Founded in 1905 by Hans Wilsdorf and his brother-in-law, Alfred Davis, these visionary men set out to do what had not been successfully and reliably done before. Build a timepiece to be worn on the wrist, that was both highly reliable, functional, and durable, as well as stylish. Wilsdorf’s dream was to create a watch that could accompany its owner through all facets of life and withstand any environment. His innovative approach and high standards for quality re-shaped the watch industry as a whole. It has made the Rolex name synonymous with quality, innovation, and elegance.

The Watch:

The Rolex Submariner Ref 5513 has a 40mm stainless steel case, with acrylic crystal. It features the Caliber 1520 movement and rotating bi-directional bezel. The 5513 has rounded crown guards and a 7mm crown. The hour markers and hands have tritium lume that has developed an eggshell-colored patina.

The Details:

This Rolex Submariner 5513 is in very good condition, with wear that is consistent with the age of this timepiece, as visible in the photos. This piece dates to a 1971 production year and has a feet-first depth rating on the dial. The tritium pearl is still present on the bezel. The stainless steel bracelet is a 9315 folded link, with 380 end-links. Included are the original outer and inner Rolex boxes, the Rolex Chronometer booklet, and a cleaning cloth.
