    Holy Smokes!!! Don't do it!!! You have a very special watch to say the least. It's worth a lot more than it was 25 years ago :)

    Sell it and use the money for something fun, no point in owning something worth this much unless you're already a multi millionaire

    Don't be an idiot. Get a new crystal in it and rock the .... out of it every day for the rest of your life.

    Hello Rob,

    Many folks will help you better, but my 0.02: have it serviced and keep it !

    Now, if you are set to sell it, there are various folks around here that can help you.

    Or, otherwise sell.it to me !

    Screw that! Leave it as is!

    Replacing parts and polishing stuff just diminishes value, and takes away all the character.

    Re: Milsub 5513

    My .02 . Do not replace or polish anything on the watch if you plan on selling it. The slightest alteration could cost you MANY MANY thousands of dollars. I would send those pictures to many of the vintage Rolex dealers you can find online (Bob's watches in California comes to mind as one) and get their feedback before you do anything. The internet has made it much more difficult to steal a great watch like that at less than current value, so you are in the drivers seat. Good luck and keep this forum posted.

    Here is a 5513 at HQ Milton http://www.hqmilton.com/watches/1964...ers-first-dial and something to read at Hodinkee https://www.hodinkee.com/articles/wh...itary-watches#

    Welcome to the forums! If it is not getting wrist time or something you really enjoy, pass it on to someone who is enthused by it and use the funds for something that moves you...

    Re: Milsub 5513

    Based on what I can see of the serial number, it looks like around 1987 and is likely worth around $6k, not the outrageous 1960s amounts that some are mentioning here. Still, nice.
