Photo is kind of lousy so it is likely a service dial

Question for 5513

Very late and the last 5513’s (1984-89) came with the glossy white gold marker “bicchierini” dial with the acrylic crystal. It’s perfectly normal. Sapphire crystals appeared with the change to the 5 digit 14060 reference.

Thanks for the advice, and it is a 1984 model, price is around $10000, is it reasonable?

Depending on condition it’s in the right ballpark. Values have been changing almost daily so it’s hard to be precise. I assume watch only?

It does look like it has a service bezel insert with the skinny numbers. Correct insert has slightly fatter and shorter numbers. Not a big deal but can be a bargaining chip.

Swiss service dial. Not worth 10k.

The glossy 5513 should have tritium Dial. The dial is likely service dial.

Actually the glossy dial 5513 is transitional sub which made in much lesser number than matte dial. It has its own charm which I like very much. If the case is still in good condition and has the box and paper, $10k is definitely good price.

Hard to tell from the photo's but it is a service dial with 'Swiss" marking at 6, I presume the hands are also replacements but can't be sure from the photo's, the insert is a service replacement. I can't comment on prices outside of the UK. I agree with other comments, I personally like the late gloss dials

To me, there is a high degree of polishing. The lug hole is almost at the edge

See the bracelet end link. It is far out of the curve of the lug
