    The dedicated 5513 appreciation thread.

    Wristshot, information whatever you like. The dedicated thread for the beauty and simplicity of the 5513.

The main takeaway is this: we RWI members are participating knowingly in the "wild west" here (which actually thrills me) so...caveat emptor and never spend more than you can afford to lose.

    My friend, I remember well your love for the 5513 and the riveted bracelets! For me the 5513 is the quintessential Rolex tool watch, beautifully purposeful, where everything has a form that follows function and makes no concessions just for fashion. The 5513 is like an old Porsche 911, manual box, no aircon, no power brakes or steering and manual window winders… As some of the legendary machines of the past, this Rolex is an icon, much imitated but never equalled.

    My 5513 build was the very first I did, and took a lot of time Reading and learning here at RWI and surfing the net and m2m for the parts. Today is in my wrist with much proud, and still I cannot stop smiling after a casual glance at her. Here at almost 7pm Mexico central time today...

      You summed it up very well.

          Beautiful!

          I actually passed on a brand new 116610 because I already had this...no need for a 6-digit once you have one of these.

            I have to agree. I even let my 114060 go as I did not need it as I had this. I like the LVs so I have a 5 and 6 digit but and a few nice fakes in ceramic but 5513 is the ultimate in my humble opinion. Often considered going Gen but then I got this franken from tripdog and I never looked back.

              LOL, this is my stubby crown guard beater- I trimmed the insides and outside of the cgs, drilled the lugholes and installed a gen 702 crown and tube. It's got the DG2813 in there and it's doing fine. This is the watch that I wear to mow the yard with. I could get a better cartel case with better cgs, maybe swap in a 2846-2, but what the heck.

                    That's a great watch. I think the current Rolex sub has gone too far towards being almost a fashion accessory, rather than what it was originally designed for, to be the quintessential diving "tool watch".

                        The 5513/14060 are my two favorite Rolex models but lately I'm leaning more heavily toward the 5513. Here's mine with a gen luminova service dial (dial feet intact) installed on a modded/drilled 2836 movement with gen 704 crown and gen Tudor hands.

                            Thank you and thank tripdog I only have two frankens now, this and a 16803. They are the only two Rolex I considered worth going all out on.

                              Most of them are modded or Frankens, but I would start with asking Sead to get you a Cartel/JKF 5513.
