1966 Vintage Rolex Submariner 5513 Gilt Tropical Dial
Case & Bracelet
Excellent case that has previously been polished and shows light wear from use. The black bezel insert has faded to a metallic brown hue and shows light wear from use.
Excellent USA rivet bracelet with 12 links and matching end links.
Excellent glossy gilt dial that is turning tropical from left to right. The lacquer is chipping in two spots around the edge of the dial. The first is between the 11 and 12 o’clock markers. The second is at the bottom where “SWISS” is printed. The markers have turned a warm creamy hue and the hands are matching. All lume glows brightly when exposed to UV and falls off rapidly at the same rate. A few of the lume plots have chips present, most noticeable at 9 and 10 o’clock.
The watch is running at COSC spec.
