Rolex Submariner Ref. 5513 - Fat Font Kissing 40 Bezel W/ Papers
The Rolex submariner has to be the most iconic watch ever produced. Its influence spans from its role in the first film production of James Bond (starring Sean Connery with his “Big Crown” Submariner) to its design impact on practically every dive watch produced since its inception. As with so many iconic Rolex models, there are one or two that stand out as the models of reference that collectors ‘must’ have. For the Submariner, that is the Ref. 5513.
The 5513 was one of the longest running models in Rolex history with a production run of over 20 years! Its pure design and clean no-date looks are part of what has made it such a hit with collectors. Not only is the reference 5513 a landmark reference in the illustrious history of the brand, it also happens to be one of their most accurate, boasting an impressive superlative chronometer rating. This example is in spectacular condition. Its case is beautifully preserved with nice bevels, and its dial is absolutely mint with homogenous cream-colored patina throughout its puffy lume plots and iconic Mercedes handset. Not to mention its gorgeous original ‘Kissing 40’ bezel which is a prize in its own right. Topping it all off, are completed and written out Rolex papers from 1971. A true daily wearing grail!
*Some marks or spots on the dial are reflections or dust on the crystal and are due to high intensity strobe lighting used while photographing. They are not actually on the watch or visible in natural lighting.
