The Rolex Submariner 5513 holds a significant place in the history of Rolex watches. Introduced in 1962, the 5513 was in production for nearly 30 years until 1989, making it one of the longest-produced Submariner models.


The Rolex Submariner 5513 was introduced as a more affordable alternative to the Submariner 5512, which featured chronometer-certified movements. The 5513, on the other hand, used non-chronometer-certified movements, making it more accessible to a broader market.


Overall, the Rolex Submariner 5513 remains an iconic and highly desirable timepiece, representing a significant chapter in the history of Rolex and dive watches in general. Its longevity and enduring appeal have cemented its status as a classic within the world of horology


This exemple of a Rolex Submariner Reference 5513 'Transitional Dial' stands out as a true gem in my collection. In my view, the case retains its original unpolished surfaces, showcasing slightly larger cut chamfers and subtle squaring on the crown guards, characteristic of its vintage authenticity and minimal wear. The transitional dial is a captivating feature with its white gold hour markers that have acquired a delightful creamy tone over time, adding depth and character to its appearance.


Paired with the correct 93150 bracelet and 580 end links. Notably, the dive extension clasp bears the engraved letter 'I,' indicating its production year as 1984.


Furthermore, the watch operates flawlessly, keeping precise time without the need for a full movement overhaul. This decision preserves its original integrity and ensures its authenticity remains intact.
