Can the experts please provide opinions on this 5513? I'm ready to purchase but being a novice, I'd like to hear some opinions on this watch.
Thanks in advance!

If it is advertised as a 1970 Sub, it's got the wrong dial on it.

Depth rating is always on top of Submariner up until 1978'ish. What serial is it??

Cheers!

Thanks, gentleman!
I'd assume not to go swimming with a superdome like this one?

than regular domed crystals or service domes? I swim/shower all the time with my 5513 that is now over 44 years old. I'd have the seals checked and get it pressure tested first though.

if you like the patina, it is a nice find (if you like the price too, lol)
