Description

Maunder Watch Co are pleased to offer this Rolex Submariner Reference 5513.

First introduced in 1962, the reference 5513 Rolex Submariner had a very long production run (even by Rolex standards), as it remained in production until 1989. The reference 5513 was almost identical to Rolex’s other, no-date Rolex Submariner at the time, the reference 5512; however, the reference 5513 was fitted with a non-chronometer-certified caliber 1520 movement, and lacked the additional “Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified” lines of text on the dial.

Initially, the reference 5513 Rolex Submariner was fitted with a glossy, gilt dial that had gold lettering; however, in 1967, Rolex switched to the classic matte black dial with white text that can be found on many other vintage Rolex watches. Due to their narrow production window, reference 5513 Rolex Submariners with gilt dials are considered quite rare and highly sought-after by collectors.

The dial variation that is of interest to collectors is the “meters first” depth rating, which is also indicative of an early production run. The original gilt dials, and some of the very first reference 5513 matte dials have their depth rating printed with the meters measurement listed first, while all later Rolex Submariner 5513 dials and contemporary Submariner dials have their depth ratings printed with the feet measurement appearing first.

This is certaintly one of the best exmaples of a gilt meters first 5513 we’ve had the pleaseure of owning.
