Among the most immediately recognizable watches ever produced in the history of watchmaking, it can surely be found the name of the Submariner, an absolutely iconic model of the Rolex brand. Its history began more than 60 years ago, when the reference 6204 was presented in 1953, followed many other important references such as the 6538 Big crown or Coroncione, the 5513 and the 1680, the first model with date indication. Rolex launched the references 5512 together with the 5513 in 1962 as the next generation of the legendary Submariner line with the innovative crown guards in order to give this watches more strength and endurance. The color of the dials can alternatively be glossy with golden or mixed gold/silver graphics or, from 1967, matte with white graphics such as the present watch. The present 5513 from 1973 impresses by its original condition, the well-preserved black graduated bezel and the attractive black matte dial beautifully harmonizing with the ivory tone of the luminous numerals and hands. The tonneau-shaped stainless steel case shows crispy edges and is equipped with a very nice Oyster riveted bracelet with deployant.
