1972 Rolex Submariner ref. 5513 “Non-Serif, Purple Faded Insert, Cream Patina”

    -

    Up for grabs is a Rolex Submariner

    Reference 5513

    3.08 mil serial number circa 1972 production

    Excellent vintage condition case with very thick and even lugs and crown guards. Polished before, but still retains its factory chamfers on lugs. Clear numbers between the lugs. No corrosion or pitting.

    Dial is original, non-serif and flawless. No chips, scratches, or spotting. Original and matching tritium hands. Nice cream patina.

    Bezel insert is period correct, has a “ghost” fade with purple hue to it. Very attractive color and an original part, but it is my belief the fading was achieved artificially on this one.

    Caseback is original, stamped 5513 and dated I.72 inside.

    Bracelet is a Rolex 78360 in tight condition, 580 ends, I date code.

    The watch has been serviced by LA Watchworks in March of this year and currently runs properly with nothing needed.

    No box or papers.
