Rolex 5513 Submariner

Here at Oakleigh Watches we love a Rolex 5513 Submariner because it is everything that a classic Rolex sports watch should be:  Solid, reliable and understated while still looking fantastic on the wrist and possessing real presence – the vintage Submariner has a feel about it that the new ceramic version just doesn’t have – it’s a matter of personal preference but for me, this feels like a ‘proper’ Submariner.

This Submariner is another beauty and as it’s a 5513 it has the trademark plexiglass lens with its convex shape that gives it that vintage feel.

This is a relatively early watch from 1972 and it has an incredible vintage feel as a result.  The dial and hands are all original and superb – they all match well and have an unmistakable feeling of genuine originality.

The case is sharp and fat which suggests that it has never suffered any damage that has had to be polished out  – the lugs are even and very close to the shape that they had when they were new.  The bracelet is a 1987 93150 and it is also excellent.

The original 1980’s boxes are in great condition with the ‘5513 a/b’ sticker still attached and it also comes with the original UK papers, Submariner booklet, Rolex booklet, plastic wallet, and calendar as well as the case back sticker.

Just serviced by S Michlmayr & Co and running within the current COSC spec, it comes with a two year warranty expiring October 2022.
