Rolex Submariner 5513 from 1986

Up for sale is my Rolex Submariner 5513 with a beautiful black dial, steel case and outstanding vintage bezel.  This watch is working perfectly, recently checked by my jeweler. The movement doing the job is the automatic 1530 calibre.
For many vintage Rolex enthusiasts the Submariner Ref 5513 is the Submariner to have. It’s not the rarest – in fact it is probably one of the longest continually produced series in Rolex’s history, running from 1962 until 1989 – however it is considered to be the epitome of the classic dive watch.
This watch comes with several design updates, it came with the release of the reference numbers 5512 and 5513. Both had long production runs, even by Rolex standards. Rolex manufactured the 5512 from 1958 to 1978, while the 5513 premiered in 1962 and was in production until 1989.
This model is what is known as a transitional piece. This is because in 1981 Rolex began introducing the first Submariners and Sea-Dwellers equipped with synthetic sapphire crystals, however this particular Submariner Ref 5513 was produced with the original acrylic dome crystal.
The Submariner Ref 5513 also features what is sometimes known as a ‘2-line’ dial. That is because the two movements used in the 5513 over its lifetime – calibers 1520 and 1530 respectively – were not certified chronometers, hence the reason there is no COSC designation on the dial below the depth rating.
