Description: 1988 Rolex 5513 Submariner , transitional wgs dial. This transitional 5513 houses the white gold surround glossy dial while in the vintage 5513 body with plastic dome crystal. This combination makes for some of the rarest Sub’s out there as they were only produced for a couple of years before the introduction of the 14060 body. What truly sets this 5513 apart is the spider dial that is associated with some of these 5513’s made in this era. The lacquer that sits on top of the dial cracks and appears like fine spider webs if seen from the right angle. We typically have not carried these types of dials as the appearance of this webbing is often uneven or unattractive. It certainly took a special one for us to host one on our page. This watch was originally purchased in Japan and comes with the original purchase receipt.
Dial: Excellent Glossy WGS dial with no signs of spidering or crazing. Lume is intact and shows an even deep custard yellow on hands and dial plots
