“New” 5513

With help from another TRF member directing me to a source and after months of searching found my grail in this meters first 5513. Pictures don’t do justice to the dial that turns dark brown depending on light conditions. Mustard color lume plots and matching hands are pretty too. To boot keeps good time. Happy as a clam.

Big fan of the King of Cool including Mustangs, GT350’s and Subs. Read that he owned both 5512 and 5513 Subs that he purchased in Switzerland in 1969. Off topic but cool.

I also have a 66 5513 but I roll in a 1990LX 5.0 convertible. The 64-68 fastbacks are simply gorgeous
