5513mattedial.com - Great 5513 Website

A new website has just been created:

http://www.5513mattedial.com/

It has everything you always wanted to know about the Rolex 5513 Submariner.

There is every fine detail on this watch you didn't even realise existed.

Definitely worth a serious and detailed look

Great photos too, worth looking at just for the photos!!!!!

fantastic site.

So this is a huge undertaking. The level of effort; pictures, content, research, site creation, and hosting. This is a ton of work and the end result is extremely professional.

Thank you for putting it together as a resource for the WIS community.

Hats off!

Thank you everyone for the kind words and warm reception.
I have been wanting to make a contribution to the Rolex collecting community that would be a valuable resource and stand the test of time. A big thank you to Marcello, jedly, and Tomvox for the gracious input that allowed the project to see its completion. In addition a big thank you as well to bluemartinifan for his editing skills and to those that contributed pictures.

Enjoy

Hi Beaumont! this is a SUPERB website, and EXACTLY what I would have loved getting into the field of vintage subs! I spent well over a year learning at best 15% of what you posted, the hard way. :)

As a consideration for future growth, any chance you may be able to consider cataloguing bezel inserts, and bracelet/endlink configurations as well?

cheers,
Mark

John, you should be proud to know this is an "asset" to TRF and to the vintage Rolex community that will provide value, guidance and education for a long time.
