Among the most immediately recognizable watches ever produced in the history of watchmaking, it can surely be found in the name of the Submariner, an absolutely iconic model of the Rolex brand. Its history began almost 70 years ago, when the reference 6204 was presented in 1953, followed by many other important references such as the 6538 Big crown or Coroncione, the 5512 and the 1680, the first model with date indication. Rolex launched the references 5513 together with the 5512 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, mat with white graphics such as the present watch. This very 5513 from 1972 impresses by its original condition, the well-preserved black graduated bezel and the attractive black mat dial beautifully harmonizing with the ocher tone of the luminous numerals and hands. The tonneau-shaped stainless steel case shows crispy edges and bevels. The watch is also offered with its original warranty.
