The 40mm diameter solid mono-bloc three-body case, full thick lugs, and slightly aged black bezel, are polished/brushed. The knurled bi-directional revolving black bezel has white Arabic numerals and baton markers graduations every ten minutes for gauging decompression times. The original dial has bright bold gilt printing, and the circle, baton, and triangular hour markers have aged luminous material that is uniform and original. It includes the original "Mercedes" gilt Rolex hands with luminous inserts, and a gilt center sweep second hand with a "lollipop" indicator. There is a gilt perimeter minute/second scale, and it has a power reserve of 44-hours at full winding, It's water resistant to 200 meters/660 feet, and the 14.5mm thick case, dial, and movement are all signed.

The Rolex Submariner Gilt 5513 has a mechanical automatic self-winding Rolex caliber 1530 movement that's rhodium-plated with oeil-de-perdrix embellishment. It's constructed with 26 jewels, a Kif-Flector shock absorber mechanism, and a straight-line lever escapement. It includes a monometallic balance that's adjusted for temperature and to 5 positions, a self-compensating Breguet balance spring, and Microstella regulating screws. It has an index regulator, a hacking seconds device for precision time setting, and the mechanism oscillates at a frequency of 18,000 vph (2.5 Hz).

This Rolex Submariner Gilt 5513 is one of the very first gilt dials, introduced in 1964.
