Rolex launched the Submariner 5513 in 1962, eight years after the diver's watch introduction to the market. It was produced until 1989, making it one of the longest-lasting references in the Submariner family. Its design remained quite unchanged over 27 years, however, collectors can differentiate the early gloss dials from the subsequent matte dials and finally the gold-circled index dials. The present example features a matte black "meters first" dial that has developed a strong character over the years.
The watch is in overall fair condition with moderate wear throughout commensurate with age. Case is in overall fair condition with moderate surface wear and scratches. Markers show signs of discoloration at the luminous. Bracelet has moderate signs of stretch and surface wear throughout commensurate with age. Buckle has signs of scratches. Dial is in overall good condition. Hands show signs of discoloration at the luminous and light scratching at the metal consistent with age. The movement is running at the time of cataloging, however, it was not tested for accuracy of time or duration of the power reserve and may need service at the buyer's discretion. Please note that Sotheby's does not guarantee the future working of the movement.
