Notes

Right after discontinuing gilt dials, Rolex introduced the matt dials, which this is the first example of on the reference 5513. While depth marking starts with the indication of meter first indicating its early 1967 production date, the dial has taken on a beautiful even beige patina to the indexes and hands, making this a beautiful example of a 5513 meter first.
