Founded in 1905 in England by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis as Wilsdorf & Davis, the partnership became known as the Rolex Watch Company in 1915, moving to its new Geneva headquarters in 1919. The success of the wristwatch in general can largely be attributed to many of Rolex’s innovations which made the company one of the most respected and well-known of all luxury brands. These have included its famous “Oyster” case — the world’s first water-resistant and dust-proof watch case, invented in 1926. The Oyster Perpetual, – the world’s first reliable, self-winding movement for the wristwatch, was launched in 1933. These would form the foundation for Rolex’s Datejust and Day-Date, respectively introduced in 1945 and 1956. Also, and equally importantly, Rolex is known for its sports watches, such as the Explorer, Submariner and GMT-Master launched in the mid-1950s.
The Rolex Submariner 5513
The Submariner 5513 is the classic diving watch produced by Rolex. Introduced in 1962 and remaining in production until 1989 the 5513 is one of the most sought-after vintage Rolex Submariner models by collectors and enthusiasts, as it represents the quintessential diving watch.
Why This Example Is Special
This Rolex Submariner 5513 was fully serviced and restored by Rolex in 2015 with no expense spared and it has not been used since. It is, therefore, as good as new. It comes fully stickered with all the Rolex protective wrapping on the case, case back and bracelet, just as it was when received back from Rolex in 2015. It also comes with the Rolex service card dated 10th Sept 2015. This authenticates this watch as genuine since Rolex would have refused to service the watch if it had not been completely genuine throughout. This watch also comes with a fully restored original Rolex bracelet and an original Rolex presentation box.
The dial has been fully restored and/or replaced by Rolex as part of the service carried out by Rolex in 2015. Likewise, the hands have been and/or replaced by Rolex as part of the service carried out by Rolex in 2015
The dial is black with white hour markers and hands, and it features the Rolex logo and the Submariner name and Swiss at the very bottom of the dial. The crystal is made of hardened acrylic, which was commonly used in watches of the era.
The watch is powered by the Rolex caliber 1530 automatic movement, which is renowned for its accuracy and reliability. It has a power reserve of 42 hours and a frequency of 19,800 beats per hour.

A word on our prices – We always try our hardest to acquire the very highest quality watches we can find, before restoring them to the highest possible standards. We then offer these at the fairest prices we can, taking into account our pre and post-sales care and service. This approach means we will never be the cheapest, but nor will we be the most expensive. Indeed there are some well-known stores in West London which are highly successful charging between two to three times the price you see here. We, therefore, consider our prices to be fair, given the quality of watches we have to offer.
