RETROSPECT: Rolex 5513 Matte Dial Submariner

Produced from 1966 to approximately 1984, Rolex’s 5513 Matte Dial Submariner with its no-date

Produced from 1966 to approximately 1984, Rolex‘s 5513 Matte Dial Submariner with its no-date watchface is well-known to collectors. The nuanced past of the ref. 5513 is host to many interesting anecdotes, whether the various shifts and changes made to the fonts and text, or the fact that the dial eventually switched from meters-first to feet-first, the smallest differences from one 5513 to another could make the difference between a $5,000 watch and a $50,000 watch. As the watch is no longer in production today, archival 5513 editions still provide a helpful reference in respect to today’s Submariner iterations.
