  • I’m excited to be able to offer this Rolex Submariner Reference 5513 with “feet first” dial. The dial’s enlarged lume plots are not only highly legible but also captivating to admire while on the wrist. This is from circa 1972.

    The head appears to be unpolished and features what appears to be the original Rolex 9315 Oyster folded link bracelet.

    I would estimate that maybe only 1 out of 500 vintage Rolex sport watches remain unpolished.

  • Vintage watches are mechanical objects that can require service of the movements and all these watches have been worn in the past. Since these pieces are vintage or pre-owned, please expect wear and patina from past usage and age.

    Mechanical watches do not keep perfect time like a battery-powered watch. In addition, they do require service occasionally and the service can be somewhat costly depending on what the watch requires for optimal timekeeping. Similar to vintage and new automobiles, regular maintenance and care is recommended for the lasting reliability of your timepiece.

    Vintage watches are not water resistant and not waterproof, unless rigorously tested and certified otherwise. If dunked in water, the watch can flood and be destroyed. Water can also enter the watch in high humidity environments and damage the movement and dial as well as hands. We suggest not swimming with vintage watches or taking them in a sauna or similarly humid environment.

    If dropped, mishandled or otherwise abused, the movement or other parts of the watch can be damaged. Please handle with care.

    Care has been taken to try to ensure the watches are running and in good condition. Please note that all watches and items are offered and sold "as is". We hope you enjoy this item and wear it in good health for years to come!
