Incredibly rare Rolex 5513 Submariner watch with exceptional 'gilt dial' where the 'lume' has developed a fantastic even patina. Rolex serviced in 2013.
This outstanding example is from 1965. The Rolex 5513 was first introduced in 1962 and production of this version with the desirable gilt dial ran until 1966 only. If one looks closely at the dial we can see that it is totally correct and has 'meters' first unlike later 'matt' dials which had 'feet' first.
Another of the very nice features of this watch is the 'kissing four' on the bezel where there is very little distance between the four and the zero in forty.
This watch does feature a later 91350 bracelet which was added in 1990.
We are privileged to offer this watch for sale and it is available to view immediately at our store in the world famous Burlington Arcade.
