Rolex Submariner ref 5513 circa 1988 Amazing Lume!


An amazing example late production plastic crystal ref 5513 no date Submariner model circa 1988 with beautifully patina’d luminous plots, matching hands, and bezel pearl. Featuring 40mm diameter case with bi-directional elapsed time bezel, domed acrylic crystal and screw down trip lock Oyster crown, and with glossy black dial with tritium indexes and white gold luminous surrounds. Powered by self winding caliber 1520 movement with sweep seconds. With Rolex stainless steel heavy Oyster link 93150 bracelet with 580 endpiecees and deployment clasp. Guaranteed genuine, recently fully serviced by one of our veteran Rolex trained watchmakers, and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation.  A very nice condition example, with previously polished case, and beautiful all original tritium luminous dial and hands.

NOTE: The dial on this watch is the modern gloss dial with tritium indexes and hands with white gold luminous surrounds. With a production year of 1988 (L5 serial #) this makes this one of the latest models of the classic acrylic crystal 5513 model preceding the introduction of the ref 14060 sapphire crystal model. The current example has gorgeous patina’d original lume, and thus has a beautiful vintage “maxi” dial appearance. Quite unusual for this era, but as you can see, a watch that we think is exceptional and warrants your attention!
