Rolex Submariner ref 5513 circa 1988

SOLD

A very late production, and incredibly well preserved Rolex Submariner ref 5513, circa 1988. The 5513 began its life as a gilt dial Submariner all the way back in 1962, transforming over the two and a half decades from gilt, to matte dial, and finally to gloss dial you see here. It was then discontinued in 1989, finishing off a remarkable 27 year run. With it’s L serial dating the watch to approximately 1988, the 5513 we have here is one of those absolute last examples to leave the factory.

It features a 40mm diameter case in razor sharp condition, with fat bevels and perfectly edged elapsed time bezel. The domed acrylic crystal covers what may be the crown jewel of this piece. The gloss black dial has begun to age to a more matte finish, which when seen in the right light becomes a beautiful fine pebble texture.

With screw down triplock Oyster crown, and screw down caseback. Powered by the self winding 1520 movement with sweep seconds and no date. Worn on Rolex stainless steel heavy Oyster link 93150 bracelet with 580 endpiecees and deployment clasp. Guaranteed genuine, recently serviced and offered with a 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation.

Vintage Rolex & Pre-Owned Rolex Watches

There is no watch brand more associated with quality, prestige, luxury, success, and social status than Rolex. Founded in the UK in 1908 and soon relocated to Switzerland, Rolex is credited with countless technical advances in time keeping accuracy, the introduction in 1928 of the water and dust resistant “Oyster” case, and in 1933, the perfection of the self winding “Perpetual” movement. With sponsorship of sporting events as wide reaching as the America’s cup, to the Daytona 500, golf and tennis tournaments, and expeditions to the far reaches of the world, Rolex has always promoted it’s brand as an icon of success, achievement, and conquest. With popular “tool” watches such as the diver’s Submariner or Seadweller, the Aviator’s dual time zone GMT, the spelunker’s 24 hour Explorer, or the auto racer’s Daytona, Rolex has created loyal followings for the sports minded man. And the dressy Datejust and Presidential models, once the CEO’s trademark timepiece, are now much sought after by both men and woman as a luxury fashion statement. Whether vintage Rolex or more contemporary, your choice of a Rolex will always be a good choice.

All of our pre-owned Vintage Rolex watches are fully restored and guaranteed genuine to give you excellent service and piece of mind.
