5513?

I'm a new member here and looking to purchase my first Rolex. I first saw the submariner on my dad's wrist as a kid and thought it was a cool watch. My dad purchased it in 1967 for less than $500 and still wears it to this day. He was a dive master so he used it for its intended purpose. It's in bad shape, but I still admire the watch and as a result would like my first Rolex to be a sub.

Welcome and great story about your dads 5513. If you can post a picture or two of it, that would be great.
