1966 Rolex 5513 Meters First Day-Glow Submariner

Regular price $0.00

Description: The 5513 is known as the cult classic submariner. It solidifies itself as the bridge between the vintage crownguard-less subs of the past as well as solidified cues of design that have not left the modern Subs of today. This gorgeous meter’s first example is named after the “200m = 660ft” depth rating having preference for the metric system as opposed to the American Standard. As Rolex developed more of an audience in America and it’s shares climbed, it standardized “Ft” first going forward. This 5513 in particular has a nice yellow lume and and an excellent case that has appears unpolished. The insert appears to have a  scratch or crack near the pearl but it is stable.
