1971 Rolex Submariner Ref 5513
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 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 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.
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.
