Catalogue Note

Introduced in approximately 1962, reference 5513 and ref. 5512, were the first Submariner models to be fitted with crown guards. The present lot, fitted with a gilt dial is particularly sought after by collectors. Reference 5513 was discontinued in approximately 1967.

The dial is signed "Swiss T<25" at 6 o'clock that was first introduced by Rolex in 1964. The lumes react very nicely under UV and in addition, the case is nice and crisp.
