The antique wristwatches have been more and more popular in recent years with the trend of vintage style. Many people think that the retro watches have nothing to do with them for the higher price. In fact, some of the common antique replica Rolex watches are not far away from us. They are just the same with the ordinary watches which can be bought easily and not expensive. Rolex Ref.5513 is such a model that can be easily to gain, so if you are interested in the distinctive timepieces, you can start with Ref.5513.
Rolex Submariner Ref.5513 was released in 1962 and continued producing till 1989. The 40 mm Rolex Submariner imitation watch was equipped with calibre 1530, an automatic movement but it was not certified as a superlative chronometer which could be seen from the dial which was designed with simplicity and elegance, being like the dress watch.
The production of Ref.5513 is very large for the long production circle that is more than 20 years. It is one of the models of Rolex with largest production, therefore, it is common in secondary market. The main reason that I recommend this version was that it was cheaper comparatively than other models.
One of the iconic features of Rolex is that it always maintains the classic appearance even many models have been updated. The current Submariner looks really similar to antique Ref.5513 integrately while there are many differences in detail. The hour markers of the knockoff watch with automatic movement have been directly covered with luminescent coating while the current models have been set the gold frame around the markers. The front glass is made from Acrylic glass while the modern wristwatches are assembled with sapphire crystal.
