Rolex Submariner ‘Bart Simpson’ Ref. 5513

$29,500

Pre-owned Rolex 40mm Submariner ‘Bart Simpson’ Dial, Oyster Bracelet, Ref. 5513

Though Rolex made earlier models named “Submariner,” the modern Submariner traces its roots to the references 5512 and 5513.  These were the first Submariners to feature crown guards and the 40mm case.   The reference 5513 was a non-chronometer rated watch (as opposed to the chronometer rated 5512), which means that the dial does not have the “Superlative Chronometer, Officially Certified” lines of text.  Many consider the reduced text on the 5513 dial attractive and endearing.  They feature a plexi-glass crystal and a depth rating of 200 meters, as opposed to the later 300 meters.  Together with the bi-directional bezel, (which wasn’t changed to the uni-directional bezel until approximately 1977), the reference 5513 looks like a modern Submariner but it is distinctly vintage.

There are many features that make the 5513 one of the most beloved Submariners.  Although the reference 5513 was introduced in 1962, it’s production continued until 1990.  Over the three decades that the 5513 was produced, Rolex continued to introduce refinements and minor tweeks that serve to offer collectors a large range of variations to discover.  While the variations were not limited to the dials, the majority of the variations appeared in the dials.  There were underline dials, gilt dials, matte dials and military dials.  Within each were sub-sets, sometimes with six or more types.

This Rolex Submariner with serial number 1503465 is from circa 1967, which makes it an early production watch. This in itself makes it interesting.  Reference 5513 watches initially included gilt dials, so named for the type of printed font and glossy dials.  This watch has what has been called the Bart Simpson dial, which was the last of the gilt dials.  The dial was named for the distinctive coronet, (Official Rolex crown insignia,) whose points were relatively flat and stubby and reminded people of Bart Simpson’s hair.  Another feature of this dial is the close spacing in the word ROLEX, as well as the crosses on the ‘t’ and the ‘f’ in the abbreviation for feet are in line, which appeals to a person who appreciates balance.   The gilt font was first printed on the dial, after which a lacquer coating was placed on top.  Bart Simpson dials from this era seem particularly prone to “crazing”, which is a kind of spotting or cracking in the lacquer that results from aging.  This watch has this typical crazing, which appears evenly distributed over the dial and seems to add to the natural vintage look, as opposed to distracting from the appeal.  Because this is a gilt dial Submariner, the dial is “meters first.”

 This dial featured a unique mixture of tritium and other photoluminescent materials that offers longer lasting luminosity than tritium that appears on other vintage dials.  As a result, people may have concerns that these dials have been relumed.  The lume on this dial is intact and appears with small creases and surface dirt as expected over time from the original lume.

Regarding the rest of the watch, the correct domed plexi-glass crystal is in excellent condition.  The winding crown is the modern, “triplock” style which was the correct factory replacement for the earlier version which Rolex discontinued.  The Oyster bracelet is marked Rolex 7280 with endpiece number 80 iis in above average condition.  While the bezel has a few small scratches, it is in overall very good condition for a watch from this era.  Lastly, the case is free of nicks, has pointed crown guards, shows the brushing on top of the lugs, and the sides appear to have been previously polished.

Rolex Explorer II Cream Dial Ref. 16550

$28,500

Pre-owned Rolex 40mm Explorer II Ivory Dial Oyster Bracelet, Ref. 16550

Rolex dedicated the Oyster Perpetual Explorer to polar explorers and all those pushing the boundaries of exploration. While the updated Explorer II was introduced in the mid 1980s, this reference 16550 was produced for only about four years, making it a less common model from this era. What’s more, Rolex offered this Explorer II with both a black and a white dial, with the black dial being the more popular.  Because earlier batches of the white dial had a propensity to turn cream or ivory, this Rolex Explorer II with its ivory colored dial is quite uncommon.  Besides being unique to each watch, this watch has an even, ivory color that is extremely attractive.  The updated Explorer II includes a sapphire crystal and hour markers surrounded in white gold on its glossy dial.  Note that on this watch, the Oyster bracelet appears to be a newer bracelet.

Rolex Explorer II Ref. 1655

$26,595

Pre-owned Rolex 40mm Explorer II, Black dial, Oyster Bracelet Ref. 1655

The Rolex Explorer II ref. 1655 was produced from 1971 to 1984.  It was upgraded from the Explorer I with the addition of a date feature and an additional orange hand with the external 24 hours graduated bezel. The movement used in this watch is the caliber 1575.  This Explorer II has a serial number that indicates a production year of 1977, as well as a Mark II dial that has been recognized as produced between 1972 to 1977, and finally a Mark III bezel that has been recognized as being in production from 1977 to 1980.  The Oyster bracelet is a Rolex USA bracelet stamped “78”, with moderate stretch.  Thus, the watch appears to carry its original components.  In addition, the case is sharp and appears unpolished, with slight swirls from wear but with no nicks.  The beauty of a watch is the dial, and this matte black dial is in lovely condition, free of marks or debris.  The tritium lume is intact and has aged to an attractive manilla color.  The 24 hour hand, which was originally orange has faded to nearly match the color of the lume patina, giving it what some collectors call a “ghost hand.”  The crystal is the correct acrylic with cyclops and is clear.  Watchworks has recently serviced this watch to ensure years of worry free wear.  This watch should please discriminating collectors and fans of vintage Rolex watches.
