Already found as early as the reference
6200, the explorer dial configuration has
always been one of the most sought
after Rolex sports model due to its rarity
but also its striking dial design with the
arabic indexes replacing the usual baton
shaped luminous markers. This explorer
dial version of the 5513 is, according to
our research, only the third of its kind to
appear on the market. Featuring a lower
underline and the double t<25 at the
bottom of the dial, a must for any serious
sports model collector.
