Lot Essay

The present watch is an extremely attractive example of the popular Submariner reference 5513. The dial has developed a beautiful and even “stardust” effect gives the watch a remarkable vintage look. Like the color shift of tropical dials, this characteristic is due to ageing and it amplifies the collectability and esthetic impact of the timepiece. For Rolex collectors, this is certainly one of the most desirable variations of the reference 5513.

Reference 5513 was launched in 1962, depth rated to 200 meters (660ft), fitted with the 8-mm. crown, crown guards, the bezel with minute divisions for the first fifteen minutes and silver triangle, black dials with gilt printing. As of 1964, the designation "Swiss T<25" was added to the bottom of the dial.
