Item is one very rare all original 1967 Rolex Submariner Watch. This is a reference 5513 “Meters First” matte black dial.
The reference 5513 was in production from 1966-1984, and can be recognized by its well-balanced matte black dial. This particular reference 5513 was from fairly early in the series, produced in 1967 (By serial number). You don’t actually need to know the serial numbers to roughly triangulate on the date of production. Rolex collectors know that this is indicated by the depth indication, where “meters” are listed before “feet”. This was a feature of the reference 5513 Submariner up until around 1970, when Rolex started transitioning into a “feet first” dial. That was due to the increase appeal in the US market.
This particular watch is extremely desirable example of the reference. It is rare to find such an early example of the 5513, complete with an inner and outer box. This one is all original and working.It does have scratches, but again,all original. Due to the cost of this item it will be local in store pickup only and Ca. sales tax applies…
