SOLD

Great example vintage Rolex Submariner ref 5513 with exceptional condition original gilt so called “Bart Simpson” dial serial # 1.3 million circa 1966. A scarce and very desirable gilt dial example, pristine condition glossy surface without dimpling or crazing or score marks from hands dragging on dial. Bright and glossy and not dull. Original patina’d luminous dots, turned a very pleasing tea color. Gilt printing all intact, not eroded or scratched. Sharp and distinctive so called “Bart Simpson” style Rolex logo crown. Hands had been relumed an unattractive green color when purchased, and we have relumed them again to match the original luminous plots as best as possible. Lugs have remained beefy, caseback free of corrosion  and metal cancer. Caliber 1520 movement has just been professionally serviced by our most meticulous veteran watchmaker. Case left unpolished as found. Original twin lock crown. With probably more recent bezel insert. Shown on great looking vintage style Italian made distressed leather strap. A great looking and scarce vintage model with a dial you gotta love!

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.
