Rolex Submariner 5513 - 1978

Rolex Submariner 5513 - 1978

In the Valhalla of iconic watches, the Rolex Submariner ref. 5513 is always wearing a crown.

These watches, produced by Rolex for almost 30 years, are the staple of any collection. This 1978 example, with its matte dial and matching hands, clean case and crystal and wonderfully ghosted bezel is an eye-popping example of a classic piece.

Below its majestic looks, the 5513 is driven by the Rolex 1520 movement, known to be one of the most reliable movements in the line.


Steel Case is approximately 40mm (excluding the crown).

Overall condition: Case is in very good condition overall, with no visible scratches or dings save some light tool marks on the back side of the lugs. Lugs are clean with crisp edges gorgeous beveling. The original matte dial and patinated hands are in immaculate condition. Original signed crown.

Includes genuine Rolex bracelet with signed fliplock clasp, and two 20mm Crown & Buckle Nylon Straps
