VINTAGE WATCHES, PRE-OWNED & USED SWISS, AMERICAN WATCHES & JEWELRY

Rolex Submariner ref 5513 Stainless Steel circa 1974

SOLD

Vintage Rolex Submariner ref 5513 serial# 3.8 million circa 1974. Very pleasing one owner model that has traveled thousands of miles at sea with its original owners and was often used as a navigational device. Don’t ask us how! Very nice condition, well loved example with very pleasing original matte black dial with untouched luminous indexes and hands. With an especially nice evenly faded elapsed bezel insert, no doubt the benefit of much sun and salt air. The 1520 caliber self winding movement with sweep seconds has just been serviced by one of our veteran Rolex trained watches. Case left unpolished as acquired. Fitted with riveted link Oyster bracelet with deployment clasp. Very nice vintage example with a colorful personal history. We were optimistic the owner would be able to locate his original papers, but unfortunately, no luck to date.

Brand

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.
