With Rolex Oyster Guaranteed 660ft under water anchor and original cord. These anchors were part of the accessories sold with a watch and are today rarities by themselves.
The present watch is a fine and early example of a reference 5513 dating from 1962, first year of production of the model. It features the rare and much sought-after black gloss "exclamation" dial with gilt printing, characterized by an additional luminous dot positioned underneath the 6 o'clock hour marker. Moreover, the watch is fitted with pointed crown guards, also referred to as "cornino" by Italian Rolex enthusiasts, found on early examples of reference 5512 only. All later Submariner cases feature the now standard rounded crown guard shoulders.
The attractive overall condition of the present ref. 5513 is demonstrated by the case and its full body. The homogenically bleached bezel, also the correct version featuring the silvered triangle, now displays a rich grey tone, enhancing the appealing look of this rare timepiece. The riveted Oyster bracelet is contemporary to the watch.
