    For sale is a very wearable and honest example of a 'meters first' ref. 5513 Submariner.

    The dial is original with fully intact original lume that has a pleasant and even creamy patina overall. No chipping on the side of the dial. There is a small blemish/tool mark right above the ‘R’ from Rolex as seen in pictures. The hands are original and have been expertly color matched by James Hyman in England to match the lume/structure of the dial.

    Case is worn but thick, with original bevels still faintly visible on the lugs and very light/faint engraving on caseback. Serial and ref numbers are clearly visible. Crown is original and functions as should. The bezel insert is a slightly later but original 1970’s mid-font insert.

    The caseback is stamped IV.68 which is correct for this serial range and dial.

    Movement currently runs well within cosc-spec and with good power reserve, but service history is unknown so no guarantees.

    Priced at EUR 10.750 via bank wire.

    The watch is located in the Netherlands, EU. Insured shipping at buyer's cost and risk (buyer may choose method of shipping). Local pick-up welcome for buyers with solid references.

    I can be reached at [email protected] or IG for any questions. Plenty of worldwide references available on request.

    Return for full refund (minus shipping/insurance/customs charges) within 3 days if not original or not as described/pictured. Returned watch must be received in the same condition as when it was originally shipped. Any possible customs charges, such as import duties or taxes (not applicable within the EU) are always the responsibility of the buyer.

    Thanks for the space OF :)
