1965 Vintage Rolex Submariner 5513 with Tropical Gilt Dial
Case & Bracelet
Excellent case that shows some wear from use. 1 very small scratch by the hole on the 5 o’clock lug. Comes with an excellent black bezel insert that is beginning to fade to brown. There is a small crack at the top of the triangle. Caseback is stamped III.65
Excellent USA rivet bracelet with 14 links and matching end links.
Excellent Gilt meters first dial that has turned tropical with age. Puffy lume plots have turned a warm creamy hue and the orginal hands match the dial. All Lume glows brightly when exposed to UV and then falls off quickly which is correct for this series of dial.
The watch is running at COSC spec.
