1982 Rolex Submariner (Ref. 5513) Mk. V Maxi Dial With Box, Papers, and RSC Papers
The Rolex Submariner Reference 5513 is the embodiment of the classic dive watch. The 5513 is simple yet sophisticated and rugged The Ref. 5513 was first introduced in the 1962 and ceased production in late 1989. The Ref. 5513 is a purpose built dive watch that lacks the date function like other Rolex Submariner models. (eg. Ref. 1680.)
This specific 1982 Rolex Submariner Ref. 5513 is commonly referred to as the Maxi Mk V Dial. The Mk V dial is commonly seen in cases stamped in the 7 mil to 8 mil range. The features of the Maxi V Dial include the following:
- "Open 6's" in the feet first depth rating
- The word “SUBMARINER” written above the depth rating and is longer then the depth rating.
- The “=” sign in the depth rating is directly below the “A” in “SUBMARINER”
The Maxi dial was the last matte dial variant for the 5513 reference range before switching to glossy white gold surround dials in 1984. The Maxi dial Submariners have become incredibly sought after due to the larger lume plots specific to these dial variants and the low production numbers toward the end of the matte dial era.
