1985 Rolex Submariner (Ref. 5513)

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.
