Gorgeous 1965 Rolex Submariner model number 5513 with stunning original factory printed gloss dial with gilt printing. The original luminous on the dial very bright, perfectly aged and matches the hands exactly. The gloss dial has very light crazing to the surface which is only visible under sharp reflective light. The case signs of wear consistent with age as does the original 9315 bracelet with 380 endlinks. Freshly serviced and in excellent running condition.
Style: Sport, Tool Watch
Circa: 1st 1/4 of 1965
Case: Fully signed all original solid stainless steel case with bi-directional rotating bezel and original screw down crown. Measures 40mm in diameter with 20mm lug spacing. Signed between the lugs at 12:00 with model number 5513 and at 12:00 with the serial number dating the watch approximately to 1965. The back is very clean and screws on and off nicely with the inside signed Montre Rolex SA, Geneva, Switzerland, Patented, Stainless Steel, 5513, 1.65. The case most likely has been polished over the years but still shows signs of its original champers on the lugs with surface wear from daily use, but not major dings. The bezel has a genuine Rolex service insert which would have been installed when the watch was sent to Rolex for servicing in the years after it was made. It is also in fairly good shape overall say for a chip in the silver triangle at 60 minutes. It turns with nice friction in both directions. The original 9315 bracelet with 380 end links shows consistent wear to the rest of the watch, probably about 60% from new with light surface wear and slight bending of a couple of the links. Overall the watch is still gorgeous on the wrist and carries a wonderful sense of history.
Dial: Truly stunning 100% original factory printed gloss dial in superb condition with gilt printing and bright luminous hour markers. Signed Rolex Oyster Perpetual, 200m = 660Ft, Submariner, Swiss T - <25. The hands are perfectly aged with some light brassing and matching luminous to the dial.
Movement: High grade Rolex in-house manufactured caliber 1530 automatic movement, fully signed Montre Rolex, Geneva, 26 Fine Rubis, Swiss, 1530. Freshly serviced here at Meticulous Watches and in excellent working condition.
