Notes:  For your consideration is a stunning 5513 meters first no date sub. The meters first matte dial is a rare variant having been used only for a few years this one being towards the end of production before changing to the more common feet first dials. One could argue that this is the quintessential Rolex sports watch with its classic design and uncluttered clean 2 line no date dial. This example has an amazing shade of patina, a beautiful faded MKII fat font insert and nicely recut chamfer case. An absolute classic watch with the vintage look and features we all love.
