Rolex Submariner (1966) Ref: 5513 - SOLD

Brand: Rolex

Reference: 5513 Gilt Submariner

Serial: 1,39X,XXX

Year: 1966

Dial: Very good honest dial with egg shell plots and matching hands. All plots are intact with no cratering. The dial has aged well and has retained some gloss. Some light spotting has developed over time. There are no drag marks, scratches, chips, cracks or oil marks. 

Case: In excellent condition. The fat lugs suggest that the case is untouched. There are normal marks and scratches associated with a case that has never seen a polishing wheel. No pitting or deep scratches.  

Accessories: Rare Full Set with a Punched Guarantee paper dated 17th February 1967 and an inner box. Comes on a period correct 1966 C+I rivet bracelet. 

Comments: The dome is a service dome and it would be worth sourcing a period correct  T19 (dome). The light spotting on the dial is hard to see unless angled correctly and with a lot of light. If your looking for a perfect mirror dial with no tell tale signs of ageing, then be prepared to pay at least another 10K.
