Catalogue Note

Once considered the less competitive version of the reference 5512, as it does not consist of the wording "Officially Certified Chronometer", the 5513 had undergone approximately 4 years of transition between the period of 1962 to 1966. This transitional period includes the evolution of the gilt dial from having chapter rings to without, gilt dial to matte dial, as well as the configuration of the case. The present dial of the watch fitted with a chapter ring configuration, exclamation mark at 6 o'clock and 2 lines of print for "submariner" and depth rating, is extraordinarily rare especially when it is fitted with a pointy crown guard (PCG) 5513 case from only year 1962 to 1963. Preserved in very appealing and original condition, this reference with all the accompanying attributes is highly collectible today and is extremely rare.
